Awesome: It
  • Christine's cameo, in which Henry Bowers drives her to the hotel where the Losers are sleeping at. It has to be read to be believed.
  • Beverly's beatdown of her abusive husband Tom at the beginning of the book.
  • IT killing Patrick Hockstetter. This comes in effect once you remember that he killed his younger brother, and tortures and kills animals.
  • The Loser's Club makes the self-appointed "eater of worlds and of children" plead for its life.
  • In a flashback sequence, Mike's father corners Henry's father with a shotgun after the latter poisoned his chickens. Mr. Hanlon gives him a fair warning to stay away from him and his family.
  • "This is battery acid, you slime!" The best part is that it works. A kid runs up to a world-devouring monster, sprays it with an inhaler, and burns off part of its face.
    • Even better in the book: "BATTERY ACID, FUCKNUTS!"
  • Richie, Ben and Bev's beatdown of and escape from Henry's gang outside the Aladdin. In fact, just about every time one of the Losers bests Henry, it's a little CMOA.
