Awesome: A Hard Day's Night
  • When John, Paul and George find out that Ringo has been wrongfully detained, they head out to pull the Big Damn Heroes thing. Hilariously, instead of explaining the situation, they just get the police to chase after them, too. All to a delightfully unexpected reprise of "Can't Buy Me Love."
  • Ringo telling off the stagehand who wants to mess with his drum kit.
    Stage Hand: Aren't you being rather arbitrary?
    Ringo: There you go, hiding behind a smoke screen of bourgeois clichés. I don't go messing about with your earphones, do I?
  • The opening guitar riff at the start of the movie, with the boys getting chased by fans in a pure expression of what Beatlemania was really like. Rock n roll movies were never the same after that.
    • In fact, at least one historian called that riff "a starting gun for a new era of rock n roll."
