  • The opening theme song.
    • The series soundtrack in general. Gideon's Theme and Bill Cipher's theme are genuinely terrifying, while big battle scenes and bombshell secrets are given sweeping epic scores more suitable for movies.
  • The Gravity Falls bumper card: it's Dipper driving away from the gnome golem in the Mystery Shack golf cart (as in the pilot) and then crashing through a Welcome to Gravity Falls billboard, forming a silhouette in the shape of the Disney Channel logo.
    • In another bumper, when Mabel is choosing a sweater to wear she cycles through NINE that she was already wearing before choosing one. Who wears that many sweaters at once?
    • A third bumper has Stan receive a gold chain in the mail with the channel's logo on it.
  • In one TV short, Fixin' It With Soos, Soos modifies the Mystery Shack's golf cart so it can not only jump over Stan's car... but flies right into the Mystery Shack's roof!
    Soos: Hit the nitrous booster!
    Wendy: Aren't those illegal?
    Soos: You bet your life they are, baby!
  • In light of recent events, we now know that Alex Hirsch is a fantastic Trolling Creator. That old image of a young McGucket writing one of the journals? It was fake. He uploaded the picture to 4chan to start an internet wide guessing session, all so he could debunk the theory in "Society of the Blind Eye". And if there was any doubt there, it was thoroughly demolished in "Not What He Seems".
  • They managed to get Cecil Baldwin for a cameo in The Stanchurian Candidate as you can see on his resume. Yes, that Cecil Baldwin.
  • The show is getting a video game for the Nintendo 3DS! Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets. And creator Alex Hirsch is helping with the development, bringing the show's style and humor to make this game an authentic experience!
  • The sheer amount of Character Development shown by even bit characters. The Mysterious Mr. Enter has even declared "Land Before Swine" as a must watch episode for anyone going into animation due to its defiance of the notion of "It is in character for the character to do this so it's not wrong and they shouldn't have to be called out on it or made to change".
  • The entire fact that Alex Hirsch decided right at the start of Season 2 that it should be the show's last, and actually stuck with that, even as the Disney execs prevented him from making the news public and probably made some pretty lucrative offers for more seasons. The man has an iron-hard will when it comes to deciding what's best for his art, and he refused to stretch the show past its natural end point just for the sake of doing more.

     Season 1 
Tourist Trapped

The Legend of the Gobblewonker
  • Dipper saving Mabel from a falling tree—while they're still running away from the Gobblewonker! They just keep rolling and hit the ground running without missing a beat.
  • Something has to be said for Soos' (and later Mabel's) boat driving skills. At one point, Soos ends up driving the boat backwards while the Gobblewonker is chasing after them.


The Hand That Rocks the Mabel
  • Mabel's Big Damn Heroes moment. She uses Gideon's amulet to save a plummeting Dipper and Gideon (who have crashed through the window of Gideon's cliff side factory) just before they hit the ground.
    • And she didn't go crazy with power like Gideon had. She destroyed the amulet without hesitation.
  • Dipper standing his ground with Gideon despite being levitated into the air and threatened with lamb shears; he keeps repeating that Mabel isn't into Gideon and was even prepared to hit him with a baseball bat.
  • Thurop van Orman's performance as Gideon, especially how well he goes from hilarious to very menacing.

The Inconveniencing
  • Wendy tree-swinging from the roof of the Mystery Shack to the ground.
  • Dipper singlehandedly breaking into the convenience store after Wendy's friend was unable to even open the door, earning the respect of everyone for the first time all night.
  • Dipper swallowing his pride and performing the Lamby Lamby Dance in front of Wendy in order to save everyone.

Dipper versus Manliness
  • This episode breathes awesome, to the point where it's laughable, but lets try and narrow down the best parts:
    • Dipper willingly going to fight the Multibear is pretty dang brave of him, considering he's the mortal enemy of beasts that are basically strength incarnate...
    • ... and during the fight, he actually had the upper hand. He physically took down such a massive creature on his own...
    • ... but then refused to kill him after actually meeting and conversing with the bear. Not because it was difficult or scary, but because it wouldn't have been the right thing to do in that situation...
    • ...and later on, he passionately defended his decision before the whole Manotaur clan and its leader. This kid stood up for himself in front of a man-bull the size of a small building.
    Leaderaur: Kill the Multibear, or never be a man!
    Dipper: Then I guess I'll never be a man.

Double Dipper
  • Dipper using his clones to steal Robbie's bike.

Irrational Treasure
  • Dipper finally putting Pacifica in her place.
    Dipper: Hey, Pacifica, Nathaniel Northwest didn't found Gravity Falls, and your whole family is a sham. Deal with it.
  • A minor one, but when Grunkle Stan is put in the stocks, Pacifica offers to let him out if he agrees that her family is better than Mabel's. In writing. Stan agrees, but when Pacifica checks the notepad, it says "YOU STINK!"

Fight Fighters
  • Dipper, after having gotten his ass utterly kicked by the invincible video game character, has Robbie coming up to him ready to fight... and Dipper just tells him to go ahead and do his worst, which makes Robbie stand down. Dipper has faced far too much shit to let this guy scare him anymore at this point, and it freaks Robbie right out. Pretty damn well done.
  • Although misguided, you have to admit that Rumble Mcskirmish is Crazy Awesome.
  • Then there's Dipper deciding to face Rumble. He knows he has no chance, but there's no way out. As Soos put it, "Like a man it is."

Little Dipper
  • Stan getting one over Gideon when he tries to scam into signing over the Mystery Shack to him.
    Gideon: Stanford, you fool! You just signed the shack over to lil' old me!
    Stan: Uh, you might wanna take another look there.
    Gideon: The Mystery Shack is hereby signed over to... "suck a lemon little man"!?

  • Soos' Big Damn Heroes moment where he runs over the trickster with his pick-up truck.
  • During the fight with the trickster, Grenda manages to cut one of his forearms off with nothing more than a toy axe.
  • "I ate a man alive tonight."
  • Though they do little to faze the two children who are used to watching horror movies, the tricks Stan uses in attempt to scare them away were pretty cool. And he does finally succeed in scaring them at the end when they catch him half naked.

Boss Mabel
  • When Mabel starts taking charge. It's pretty impressive to see her boss around Wendy and Soos.
  • The fact that Dipper somehow managed to catch the Gremoblin.
  • Dipper turning the monster's OWN worst fear-inducing Death Glare against it.

Bottomless Pit!
  • Crazy an idea as it was, it looked like Stan was actually succeeding in giving that bear driving lessons.

The Deep End
  • Dipper saving Mermando's life by giving him reverse CRR, despite how unpleasant and unnecessary it was for him to do so. Seems he was cut out for the job of a junior lifeguard after all.
  • Mabel willingly giving up her dream of having an "epic summer romance" in order to make the object of her affections happy instead.

Boyz Crazy
  • Dipper reveals to Wendy that Robbie's song has subliminal messaging to brainwash Wendy. This—and the fact that Robbie stated that he ripped the song from another band—causes Wendy to break up with him. Even better? Dipper wouldn't have found that out if Robbie didn't open his big mouth to say "Catch you on the rewind", which was exactly how Dipper found out about the message!
    • Not to mention that Grunkle Stan is the one that's helping Dipper out. As he states: "Road safety laws: PREPARE TO BE IGNORED!!!"

The Land Before Swine
  • Grunkle Stan leaping onto a pterodactyl and punching it in the face in defense of Waddles. Punches it. Right in the face. For real this time.
  • Soos figuring out that the baby pterodactyl's eyes are too far apart for it to see right in front of it, and escaping by having he, Dipper and Mabel walk in a straight line in front of its nose.
  • Soos pounding the geyser to launch himself and the Pines' back to the surface.
  • Old Man McGucket eating his way through a dinosaur.

  • Stan discovers Gideon broke in, and shoos him off with a broom.
  • A few flashbacks to Stan's life show him as a weak, bullied kid who learned how to box, take down kids bigger than him, and foil a robbery. Probably why he could take the pterodactyl.
  • Using the power of Imagination to take down a furious Bill. From lasers, to Kitten fists, to laser question marks, to synth music.
    • Then, they combine their powers to throw Bill out of Stan's mind and... Bill ends the fight by teleporting them all to a white space, Heroic Second Wind or no, he's still more powerful than them. He proceeds to calm down, compliment them, and deliver a cryptic warning before leaving.
  • Gideon just blows a hole into the shack and destroys the safe, beating them and having his dad take a wrecking ball to the shack.
    Gideon: Oh, I'm sorry, Pines Family, did I wake you?
    • The fact that summoning a demon was his Plan A and that dynamite was his Plan B tells you a lot about him.
  • The "resurrection" of Xyler and Craz, and they're given quite an upgrade.
  • The design of the inside of Stan's mind is phenomenal.

Gideon Rises
  • Dipper vs. Gideon in the giant Gideon robot.
    • To elaborate, Dipper took a running jump off the cliff, crashed straight through the Gideon robot's eye and tackled Gideon down in one smooth, continuous motion.
    • Dipper giving Gideon the beating he deserved.
      • Which included Dipper catching Gideon's fist during their fight, then twisting his hand around to punch Gideon with his own fist.
  • Stan exposing Gideon as a fraud and turning the whole town against him. He did this by realizing that his hearing aid is picking up some sort of feedback!
    • The shot of Gideon getting arrested.
  • "Here we go."
    • "Gravity Falls will return." With the way that line is said, it could mean a completely different thing than just the show.
  • The ending scene. The music is epic, powerful, maybe even a little scary—but it's also inspiring. Why? Because you, as the viewer, are witnessing the pinnacle of Stan's life. Stan has all three journals and uses the combine images in them to activate the machine. The way the machine lights up and he smiles, just like anyone who's just accomplished a lifelong goal would... it's truly, tearjerkingly beautiful. And the best part is, this is just the tip of the iceberg. We still have so much to learn...
    Stan: Here we go. (cut to black)
    • Kinda makes you wonder why he would ever think "Is this all there really is?" when he's clearly had a powerful purpose for many years.
      • Fridge Sadness in that Stan is getting to the end of his life, and had spent years searching for the journals. The possibility that he could die without ever fulfilling that purpose would have to have gotten to him at times.
      • Potential Fridge Horror: We don't know for sure that Stan's plan for the machine is necessarily benign. Remember, in Gravity Falls, there is no one you can trust.
    • Brad Beeck, the series' composer, has now released several excerpts of soundtrack on his soundcloud account, including this scene. Crowning Music of Awesome indeed.

     Season 2 
  • Grunkle Stan managing to fight off a horde of zombies with just a bat and golden brass knuckles definitely counts as an awesome moment.
  • Mabel and Dipper manage to hold their own against a horde of zombies until they get cornered.
  • Mabel blows off a zombie's head with a ''confetti cannon".
  • The Pines' using the Power of Rock to send the zombies packing. At first, Dipper and Stan sing awkwardly, but soon really get into it.
    Mabel: Thank you! We'll be here all night!
    Stan: Deal with it, zombie idiots! Hahaha!
    Dipper, Mabel, Stan: Pines! Pines! Pines! Pines! (Fade out)
  • Agents Powers and Trigger surviving the horde after getting dragged off into the woods.
    • Also, apparently, in this Universe, Ron Swanson is a government agent for a secret, paranormal investigating agency.

Into the Bunker
  • While all the group all does well, special mention goes to Wendy. Beforehand, it was unknown how well she'd do or if she would even go (considering the events of The Inconviencing, not to mention when she encountered Waddles in Soos' body, her avoidance in these events is justified). She proves herself to be awesome at this sort of thing. First, she spots the branch on the metal tree that opens up the titular bunker as well as climbing up to do so, Lumberjack-style. She then manages to find the doorway leading deeper into the Author's secret laboratories. She THEN manages to deduce that the "Author" of the journals wasn't who he claimed by seeing his picture on a can of beans, alerting Dipper. She THEN manages to hold her own against the "Author," really a shapeshifting creature known as Experiment 210, several times afterwards, the last time long enough reclaim Journal 3 from him (210 took it in an earlier struggle) and remove him as a threat to the group.
    Wendy: It took us into it's home, tricked us and tried to destroy us. I'd say we return the favor.
    • Experiment 210 is a villanious one who proves to be more frightening than even Bill Cipher at times.
      • That's probably because Bill isn't voiced by The Joker.
  • A small one, but Soos subtly calling out Mabel for her pushiness nearly getting Dipper and Wendy killed by The Shapeshifter
    Mabel: I thought he was joking!
    Soos: You know Dipper's jokes are terrible!
Golf Wars
  • Everything after Mabel zip lines to Pacifica, which includes the two mowing through homicidal Lilliputtins, and a car chase that involves giant axes and a volcano.
  • Big Henry's Heroic Sacrifice.

The Sock Opera
  • The fight between Mabel and Bill Cipher. Especially so because Bill was responsible for his downfall because of all the abuse he put Dipper's body through compounding on the sleep deprivation Dipper had put himself through before the takeover.
  • Also, the fact that Mabel managed to put together a pretty fantastic puppet show with lights, original music, and full sets, and put it up at a local theater, on a shoestring budget and with less than a week's worth of prep time. That takes some moxie.
  • Mabel coming to the realization that her obsessions and boyfriend-of-the-week habits, as well as her expectation of Dipper to just roll with them, is actually very draining on Dipper and selfish of her to boot. It really goes to show how talented the writers are that they were able to take one of Mabel's negative character traits and turn out an episode based solely on that that lets her learn from the experience and become a better person.

Soos and the Real Girl
  • Soos, of all people, gets one by defeating his Psycho Cyber Ex-Girlfriend and throwing her game into the pizza oven. Fitting, as this is his Day in the Limelight.
    Soos: GAME OVER, Giffany!
  • Melody too, in that sequence. Just look at her whack the crap out of that animatronic!
    • Doubly so considering that, as far as we know, this is her first interaction with the paranormal happenings of Gravity Falls. Where most would freak out, she takes it like a champ.

Little Gift Shop of Horrors
  • In "Hands Off", Dipper putting up a decent fight to hold off the wave of cursed hands attacking him, Mabel and Stan.
    • If you look at the shadows, "Clay Day" shows him putting up a similar effort against the Claymation Skeletons.
  • The entirety of "Clay Day" on an animation perspective. To whit:
    Crazy56U: And now it’s time for the main event...

The Society of the Blind-Eye
  • Old Man McGucket, of all people, gets a Big Damn Heroes moment when he saves Dipper and friends from having their memories erased.
    Old Man McGucket: I raided the mining display for weapons! Now fight like a hillbilly, fellers!
  • Old Man McGucket throwing himself in front of the Blind-Eye Mind Wiper to protect the Mystery Shack group. Immediately followed by taking several shots to the head before taking out Blind-Ivan with a head-butt.
    Old Man McGucket: Hit me with your best shot, Baldy! But my mind's been gone for thirty-odd years! YOU CAN'T BREAK WHAT'S ALREADY BROKEN!
  • Hats off to the group for permanently disbanding a dangerous cult that stole peoples memories.

Blendin's Game
  • The sheer lengths Dipper and Mabel went through for Soos. Anyone can throw a party, but only the twins would battle time itself for the ones they care about.
  • Soos grandma claiming she'll tear Soos' deadbeat father limb from limb if he ever shows his face after he again stands up his own son.
    • Even better, since she and Soos have the same last name, Soos's dad is probably her son. But she doesn't care; he hurt Soos, and if he comes near him, he pays.

The Love God
  • He might be a bit scatterbrained, but Mabel and Dipper come very close to outwitting a literal god - and even then, the dramatic crash of the hot air balloon eating the guy was hilariously awesome.
  • Even when borrowing the powers of a literal god, Mabel couldn't keep her friends together. Want to know who could? Thompson.
    • And it's done thanks to a weaponized usage of his Butt Monkey status.

Northwest Mansion Mystery
  • What convinces the Northwest family to go to Dipper for help with a ghost? A picture on the front of the Gravity Falls Gossiper showing him fending off a giant vampire bat with a taser while the police cower behind him! Admit it, you really wish that that wasn't an Offscreen Moment of Awesome!
  • Throughout the episode, Dipper doesn't hesitate to tell the Northwests what he thinks of them, especially after he learns that they tried to use him to avoid supernatural retribution.
    • Dipper gets bonus points for echoing the yell of the vengeful ghost before opening the doors to the Northwest family.
    Dipper: NORTHWESTS!
  • The ghost haunting the manor manages to be very dangerous, and props to him for getting out of the mirror Dipper trapped him in.
  • Dipper managing to capture the ghost!
  • Pacifica defying her parents and opening the gates. It's especially awesome since her father is ringing a bell Pacifica is mentally conditioned to submit to, and her body automatically begins to stop itself from opening the gate, but she manages to pull through out of sheer willpower and pull the switch to open the gates. Her badass one-liner tops it all off.
    Pacifica: Our family name is broken! And I'm gonna FIX IT!
  • The ending reveals that McGucket has not only kept his character development since the last time we saw him, but he's also repaired the laptop! What he found, though, isn't so awesome...

Not What He Seems
  • Grunkle Stan's escape from the police station. He takes advantage of the gravity-quakes to bust out of the chair he's handcuffed to, steal the key from Agent Powers, and uncuff himself while in mid-air. He also casually pickpockets one of the Agents' wallets. And to top that off, he bribes a taxi driver, possibly with money taken from said stolen wallet, to head full-tilt for the edge of town, and hides while the cops inevitably go after it.
  • Even if it ultimately seems like a good thing that they failed, Dipper and Soos put up a damn good fight trying to prevent Stan from reaching his potentially universe-destroying portal. Soos especially since he considers protecting the kids, and by extension the universe, more important than his duty to the employer and father figure he has known for almost half his life.
  • The Author of the Journals, A.K.A. Stan's Brother, comes out of the portal.
  • Dipper and Mabel's escape from the government Humvee. Mabel enrages a passing Manly Dan enough for him to ram it with his lumber truck, crashing it, and pinning Agent Trigger in the front seat.
  • The return of the grappling hook.
  • One particular scene near the end, when Mabel decides to trust Stan and let go of the portal's kill switch manages to be a combination of this, Tear Jerker, and even Nightmare Fuel as the portal activates and creates so much destruction that it really does look like it's going to tear the Universe apart.

A Tale of Two Stans
  • Stanford rewiring the house to allow the mind-wipe gun to affect the FBI agents and keep everyone safe.
  • Despite Stanford not being able to go to a top college, he was still able to work his way to a PHD and a research grant, which is pretty cool.
    • He did it three years ahead of schedule.
  • McGucket was an early PC pioneer.
  • Grunkle Stan was able to take on his brother's identity, fake his death, and use his reputation to build a tourist trap, while secretly working to rebuild the portal. For the first time in his life, he was able to accomplish something great.
    • And he did all this while being the dumber one of the pair of twins, and having only ONE of his brother's journals to learn from for the longest time.
  • Grunkle Stan managed to chew his way out of a car trunk. How? Why? We may never know. Either way, it was pretty impressive.
  • Recently, we saw Stanley take down three government agents while handcuffed to a chair. Now, we see Stanford subdue him in a matter of moments, without visible effort. This, and the weapon he apparently acquired on the other side of the portal, make you wonder just what he's been up against over there for the past thirty years. And he's gotten out unscathed!

Dungeons, Dungeons And More Dungeons
  • The two pairs of Pines twins owning DD&D, especially since grunkle Stan and Mabel have never played it before. After Dipper and Stanford explain them it isn't only about maths but also about imagination, risk and sheer dumb luck too, Mabel and Stan both sport Cheshire grins and Mabel comes up with creative attack names while Stan's luck (read: cheating) literally saves the lives of Dipper and Stanford when he rolls a perfect 38, allowing them to defeat the nigh-invincible monster.
  • Grenda braining a beast over the head with an armchair was pretty awesome.
  • Stan fulfills the dream of every Legend of Zelda fan by swatting Navi.
  • "If my hands were free, I'd break every part of your face".

The Stanchurian Candidate
  • When Stan sees the kids in danger, he effortlessly climbs a construction frame, punches three eagles with his bare fists, and climbs a mountain to rescue them. It's as gloriously over the top manly as his Imagine Spot from "Land Before Swine", showing his Papa Wolf tendencies really do make him that strong.
  • Ford inventing a light bulb that lasts a millennium, and a mind control tie that was used on Ronald Reagan.
  • Gideon once again proves to be a No-Nonsense Nemesis. The first chance he gets after taking over Bud's body, he ties Dipper and Mabel up and tries to blow them up with dynamite. And he masterminds all this from prison with an errant journal page he hid in his hair.
  • In the end, who ends up as the new mayor of Gravity Falls? Tyler the cute biker. "Got it" indeed.

The Last Mabelcorn
  • In an epic piece of Screw You, Elves!, Mabel punches a unicorn in the face upon learning its Incorruptible Pure Pureness routine is just a scam. She's then joined by Wendy, Grenda, and Candy in the fight, kicking so much ass that the unicorns eventually surrender not only the hair they came for but a bunch of treasure to get them to go away. Ford was quite impressed.
  • Wendy's Rousing Speech to Candy and Grenda, inspiring them to bust in and take the unicorn hair by force.
    Wendy: Look, it's time we stop trying to be so perfect and be who we really are. We’re crazed, angry, sweaty animals! We're not unicorns! We're WOMEN! AND WE TAKE WHAT WE WANT! [punches a tree]
    • Grenda returns by headbutting a boulder into smithereens!
  • Standford deflecting the Memory Wiping Gun with the metal plate in his head.
    • For that matter, Ford himself acknowledges that Dipper's use of the gun was both awesome, and fairly reasonable, pointing out that his line of action would've been the perfect way to attack Bill if he really was controlling Ford at the time.
      • This also means that McGucket got payback on the being responsible for his brains getting scrambled with the same device also being the perfect weapon against him, purely by accident.
  • The spell working and shielding the Shack from Bill.

Roadside Attraction
  • It comes back to bite him in the end, but Dipper has game when he shows a little confidence around girls.
  • Candy for once getting to save the day, with her Awesomeness by Analysis letting her know the perfect time to detach a sky tram from its cable so it can land safely and the monster attacking them will be stopped.

Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future
  • Dipper rescuing Ford from the security bot. After failing to execute Ford's badass slide down the pillar and showing fear to the bots, which got Ford caught in the first place, he takes down a spaceship, and stares down a giant laser gun without fear, causing it to turn itself off.
    • Not to mention: Ford asks Dipper to become his apprentice before the fight with the security droid - Dipper's enthusiasm and intelligence has managed to legitimately impress a certified genius! To Ford, managing to take down several alien devices is only the cherry on top of the sundae of great potential that Dipper is.
    Ford: How many other twelve year olds do you think are capable of doing what you've just done?
  • While definitely Nightmare Fuel, you gotta admit, Bill unleashing the apocalypse is utterly chilling and completely awesome.
    • And let's be honest, if previous episodes didn't already convince you that he's the premier Magnificent Bastard of the show, look no further than the way Bill gets around the Hellish Pupils that would have immediately given him away: by possessing Blendin, aka one of the few people in the show whose eyes are always hidden.
  • The reveal that the impossible cliffs were caused by an alien spaceship crashing through them, which is what Ford used to build the portal in the first place.

Weirdmageddon Part I
  • If you count the actions of villains, Bill Cipher in general is an absolute BOSS in this episode. He conquers the entire town with his chaos magic and the help of his demonic friends, twists and mangles the face of Preston Northwest, immobilizes Stanford Pines and turns him into a golden statue/backscratcher, and he completely obliterates the Time Baby.
  • A minor one, but new Mayor Cutebiker is shown to have balls of steel when he stands up (though understandably afraid) to Bill and his gang by politely demanding they leave, which is a HUGE one for him. Unfortunately, it works as much as you'd expect.
  • Lazy Susan's Hypocritical Humor comment on how "one-eyed things are weird" deserves a mention as well, considering the last time she saw something supernatural Susan freaked, tried to call 911, and got her memory wiped. This time she isn't as easily intimidated.
  • This mainly gets on here for being Laser-Guided Karma, but Bill's first attack on the people of Gravity Falls is swapping the functions of Preston Northwest's face-holes when he tries to sell himself out to him. After everything that Preston has done, it can be incredibly satisfying to watch, regardless (or perhaps because) of how disturbing it is.
    • It's small, but Pacifica's very vocal disapproval of Preston's attempt to side with Bill can be counted as one, considering how afraid she was of her parents in "Northwest Mansion Mystery".
  • Wendy threatens to break Ghost Eyes' arm and get the key to the prison bubble from Gideon. She immediately follows through on that threat before hijacking a car. "Because I'm a flippin' Corduroy!"
    • And keep in mind that Ghost Eyes is twice her size, multiple times her body weight, is crazy buff, and came fresh out of prison. And Wendy made him look like a chump.
    Dipper: Wendy... you are the coolest person I know.
    Wendy: I know, dude. Tell me about it later.
    • Oh, and lest we forget that Wendy ALSO proceeds to briefly carry off Gideon as a hostage before drop kicking him into his henchmen. VERY satisfying.
    Gideon: You'll never get away with this! You hear me!?
    Wendy: Guess what? We already DID! *drop kicks*
  • Dipper appears to convince Gideon to pull a Heel-Face Turn to save Mabel and fight Bill.
  • Gideon's rallying speech to his henchmen as they go toward their possible Heroic Sacrifice.
    Gideon: Let's do this!
  • Soos spends the three day Time Skip Walking the Earth and becoming a folk hero by helping out everyone he can.
    • Particularly impressive when you consider that to reach the Wasteland, Wendy and Dipper had to make it past Gideon's Auto Warriors, navigate a minefield of eye-bats and chaos-bubbles, and jump a massive ravine. Soos, alone, made it there first.
  • It doesn't work, but there's something to be said for how Dipper's response to Bill taunting him to end things right there is to jump up and punch him in the eye.
  • Dipper survives three days on his own in a world turned to chaos. That's hugely impressive even for an adult, let alone a boy just shy of his 13th birthday.
  • The fact that Shandra Jimenez managed to survive the three days and is still reporting news is pretty awesome in its own right.

Weirdmageddon Part 2
  • Dipper manages to resist Mabel's prison, which is a Lotus-Eater Machine that grants you whatever your heart desires (though Mabel is the ruler of the world). Bill even states one would need a will of titanium to resist it.
    • He almost succumbs to fantasy Wendy offering to be with him if he were older - but about a second later realizes that it just isn't going to be and banishes the thought. Especially impressive given how much trouble he had letting go of Wendy in "Roadside Attraction".
  • Bill summoning a miniature storm when he finds out that he's trapped within the town. And this presumably wasn't intended. It was created through. His. Anger. Alone.
  • Turns out we saw so little of Stan these last two episodes because he was gathering up an army of all the town's creatures, and anyone else who Bill hasn't captured.
    • Plus, Pacifica's one of the few who managed to survive the four days Weirdmageddon's been going on. Not bad for someone who until recently never had to face much real hardship.
    • Its also worth noting, that Stan has not suffered any Clothing Damage compared to everyone else. Although that might be because it's still the Mystery Shack, so he might have spare clothes there.
    • It's also implied that the army was responsible for putting a barrier around the town to keep Bill from the rest of the world.
  • Soos, Wendy, and Dipper beating (and in one case, eating) the tar out of some muscle-y waffles and living stuffed animals. Especially since they turn out to be Bitches In Sheep's Clothing.
