Awesome / The Mist
  • Irene, when she chucks a tinned can of peas at Mrs Carmody's face:
    Irene: Shut up, you miserable buzzard! Stoning people who piss you off is perfectly okay! They do it in the Bible, don't they? And I got lots of peas!
    • And then Ollie goes and tops everything by finally shooting Carmody as she was about to have David's son sacrificed.
      Ollie: I killed her.
      David: Thank you Ollie.
      Ollie: I killed her. I wouldn't have done it if there had been any other way.
      David: That's why I said thank you.
  • The scene with the roaming behemoth near the end is eerily beautiful and genuinely terrifying in a strangely subtle way. Quite a bit of people consider it the best scene in the whole movie.
  • A meta-example. According to IMDb's trivia:
  • Another meta-example: Harden's performance as Mrs. Carmody. It takes world-class talent to play a character the audience loves to hate instead of just outright hates, and her performance is flawless. It won her a much-deserved Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress.
