* The scene where [[spoiler:Jerome burns himself to death, and his silver medal turns gold]], and the key scenes where Vincent triumphs against the odds. It's a hugely bittersweet ending, combined with a few heartrending moments.
** What makes it worse is the scene before, where [[spoiler: Eugene/Jerome shows Vincent/Jerome all the genetic evidence he's been collecting.]] Vincent doesn't know why he did all this for him, and he doesn't know [[spoiler: that Eugene is planning to kill himself]], but he still thanks him.
--->'''Eugene''': I got the better end of the deal. I only lent you my body. You lent me your dream.
