[[AC:1973 Film]]
* The mother gets a big one in her speech to Karras, who after examining Regan feels that more treatment is needed, proves that she is a mix of MamaBear and {{Determinator}}.
-->'''Chris [=MacNeil=]''': "You show me Regan's double, same face, same voice, everything. And I'd know it wasn't Regan. I'd know in my gut. And I'm telling you that ''thing'' upstairs isn't my daughter. Now, I want you to tell me that you know for a fact that there's nothing wrong with my daughter, except in her mind. You tell me for a fact that an exorcism wouldn't do any good. You tell me that!"
* Father Karras, [[spoiler: after seeing Father Merrin has died--possibly at the hands of the demon--regains his faith, demands the demon enter him and when he realizes the demon will use him to kill Regan, [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices himself]] by jumping out the window.]]
* Merrin himself is made of awesome. He drops what he's doing in Woodstock just so he can save a poor soul (In this case Regan.) from the demon. As soon as he arrives, he takes control of the situation and mentors Karras giving him advice and even provides a mental anchor when the Demon tries to psyche out the younger inexperienced Karras.

[[AC:2016 Series]]
* The closing moments of the pilot, where Tubular Bells suddenly starts up and Father Marcus puts on the iconic hat before heading out to work.
* As bad a sign as it is in the long run, it's pretty hard not to cheer when Casey gives into her possession while a sexist jerk is harassing her, causing her to crush his balls with one hand and then claw his chest to pieces.
* During the exorcism at the house, the demon tries to get into Father Marcus's head by dredging up horrible childhood memories, cruelly impersonating his mother and father. Just when it looks as though it worked, like he might break, Marcus turns back to the demon with a humorless grin:

-->'''Father Marcus:''' ''Is that all you've got?''

* The reveal at the end of the actual exorcism that [[spoiler:Angela is none other than Regan [=MacNeil=]...and her mother has just arrived looking for her.]]
* Marcus blessing an ''entire lake'' in an attempt to baptize the demon out of Casey.
** And not just ''any'' lake. It was Lake Michigan- the fifth largest lake in the world. [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lakes_by_area]]
* While [[spoiler: obviously a HopeSpot for things to get worse]], Marcus and Tomas [[spoiler: being able to exorcise Casey by using what is implied to be Father Karra's last rites]]. That's ''impressive''.
* No mention of [[spoiler: Father Bennett fighting off the two possessed men and holding a pretty impressive fight without so much as a stab to the shoulder?]] Bonus points when [[spoiler: Bennett]] is able to [[spoiler: exorcise a man too]].
