* As much of an asshole Darnell is it was pretty sweet that he offered Arnie a Job in exchange for free car parts to fix Christine and a few bucks. Even if the sweet moment only lasted 5 seconds.
* The descriptions Dennis gives of his early friendship with Arnie, and how much he misses his friend when the latter undergoes a personality change.
* There's something kind of poignant about the scene in the film where Arnie talks to Christine after Buddy and his cronies trash her. Say what you will about Arnie's change in behavior at that point, but the way he cares about his car getting wrecked would be enough for anyone who just got their first car damaged in some way to identify with Arnie. This could be enough to even border as a TearJerker.
