* Frost forcing Nixon to admit his involvement and declare his belief that "[[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem when the President does it, that means that it is not illegal]]."
* The phone call scene. No music, no effects. Just a fantastic screenplay and a powerhouse actor giving everything he's got and revealing a perceived monster to just be a broken man.
* Jim Reston gets one in his first appearance when he tells Frost and co. how important this is and reminds us of what Nixon did with very believable anger, seeming incensed at the very notion of being sympathetic to him.
