Awesome: The Queen
  • The moment near the end where QEII astutely attributes Blair's empathy for her media plight to the fact that the same thing could happen to him. As it did.
    • Also, where she shuts him up about what the newspapers are saying:
    Their grief? If you imagine I'm going to drop everything and come down to London before I attend to my grandchildren who've just lost their mother...then you're mistaken. I doubt there is anyone who knows the British people more than I do, Mr. Blair, nor who has greater faith in their wisdom and judgment. And it is my belief that they will any moment reject this—this 'mood', which is being stirred up by the press, in favor of a period of restrained grief, and sober, private mourning. That's the way we do things in this country, quietly, with dignity. That's what the rest of the world has always admired us for.
  • Tony Blair gets one when he bawls out Alistair Campbell after Campbell makes a rude comment about Queen Elizabeth II.
    Blair: You know, when you get it wrong, you really get it wrong! That woman has given her whole life in service to her people. Fifty years doing a job she never wanted - a job she watched kill her father. She's executed it with honor, dignity, and as far as I can tell without a single blemish, and now we're all baying for her blood! All because she's struggling to lead the world in mourning for someone who threw everything she offered back in her face, and who for the last few years seemed committed twenty-four seven to destroying everything she holds most dear!
  • The crowd scene as described in the CMoH page. After so much trouble for the royal family, the public shows that no, they have not abandoned Her Majesty.
