In the movie, George has his two greatest moments ever. First:
* '''George:'''"No! SIR! Mr Spacely!"
* And immediately afterwards, he risks death and dismemberment by entering the machinery to shut down the drill that is killing the Grungies.
* In what combines as this and a TearJerker in real life, George O'Hanlon, then greatly impaired due to partial blindness and short term memory loss from a stroke, struggled on to play the role of George, managing to finish his final line just before passing away in the recording studio. Hanna-Barbera alum Iwao Takamoto related the moment in the book ''My Life with a Thousand Characters''.
