Awesome / The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

  • Buckaroo gets one in the first scene of the movie, when he successfully pulls off the first test drive of his famous Rocket Car. But then, just when it looks like he's done, he veers away from the text track and drives off towards the Sierra Nevada mountains while his Mission Control team freaks out. A few minutes later, he successfully drives through the mountain by traveling across the eighth dimension, escaping without a scratch.
  • Buckaroo hijacking a Harley Davidson from a motorcycle convention and tearing off down the highway in pursuit of the Lectroids that kidnapped Professor Hikita.
    • Doubly epic since the bikers are, understandably, rather upset, until one of them realized "Hey, that's Buckaroo Banzai!"
  • Casper and Scooter Lindley pulling a Big Damn Heroes when Buckaroo's cornered by the Lectroids, pulling him onto their helicopter at the last minute.
  • The Hong Kong Cavaliers storming Yoyodyne Propulsions in a tour bus—in full costumes, no less.
  • Buckaroo parachuting back to Earth after chasing down John Worfin's spaceship and blowing it out of the sky, then casually walking off like he just took a taxi to work. It's goofy as hell, but it really makes you believe that Buckaroo does this stuff every other day.
