Awesome: Eight Legged Freaks
- The aversion of Disproportionate Retribution: You expect that because Bret gave in to teenage hormones, he's going to catch some Death By Spider like all his biking buddies. Instead he gets one of the coolest moments in the film - twisting right off his airborne bike, and kicking away an attacking spider in mid-air. That chase is AWESOME.
- The two guys who we just know are going to get eaten by the spiders, the alien-fearing paranoiac black radio show host and the dopey fat deputy, not only get some honestly heroic moments but they live through the movie. Such a simple, clever touch, and yet it's somehow amazing to see.
