Awesome: American Beauty

  • After spending a lot of the movie subtley putting Jane down and undermining her, Jane and Ricky's verbal bitch-slap to Angela is pretty satisfying:
    Angela: Jane, he's a freak!
    Jane: Well SO AM I! And we'll always be freaks and you never will because you're just\\ \\too...perfect.
    Angela: Yeah, well, at least I'm not ugly.
    Ricky: Yes you are. And you're boring. And totally ordinary. And you know it.
  • Lester blackmailing his boss on his way out the door, including threatening to lie that the guy came on to him, knowing people will want to believe it.
  • Lester quitting his job, and pretty much everything he does after.
  • Ricky has two in swift sucession: Telling his father that he's a prostitute, just to mess with his head, and then telling Angela that she's 'ugly, boring and totally ordinary' to get back at her for being a bitch to Jane.
