* The friendship Lester and 'Buddy' established after breaking out of the prison cell. The fact that they both put themselves on the line for each other (Lester shooting a ceiling prop to open a hatch for Buddy, who would later find Lester in a fire fight and drags him to the outdoors above for example) is heart warming enough, especially [[spoiler: in the ending, where by then, Lester is barely alive, and Buddy arrives to carry him onto the dragon, flying off to the sunset.]]
