Awesome: Richie Rich

Film
  • "Mr. Van Dough, you're fired!"
  • Mr. Rich from the live-action film gets a great crowning moment. The Riches are forced to open the legendary Rich Vault to Mr. Van Dough. When he does, he is shocked to find mementos of the Riches' lives, dating back to when Mr. and Mrs. Rich started dating, as opposed to insane hoarded amounts of money.
    Van Dough: The money? Where is the money?!
    Mr. Rich: (in his best are-you-fucking-kidding-me? voice) In banks! Where else? Oh! And the stock market, real estate...
    Van Dough: Are you kidding me? You mean to tell me that there isn't a single gold bar, or emerald, or thousand dollar bill in this entire mountain?!
    Mr. Rich: Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you Lawrence, but that's not what we treasure.
    • The vault scene also has a bit of Crowning Moment of Heartwarming to it when Richie comes in and finds out that this was where all his childhood mementos - the signs that he had loving parents and a happy childhood - had been stored.
  • After Richie's parents go missing, Van Dough offers him a small chair in the office. Richie instead silently walks around the desk to sit in his father's chair. Even The Nostalgia Critic thought this was awesome.
  • Keenbean using a robotic bee and a wash rag with superglue on it to save Richie and his friends from the Matter Replicator in his lab.
  • Cadbury gets one when he gives a swirlie to the assassin sent to kill him. This troper really enjoys that scene because it shows that Cradbury is more than a just pompous butler.
