Awesome: The Right Stuff
  • Yeager's aileron roll after breaking the sound barrier;
  • Recruiting Shepard for the astronaut corps ("Sounds dangerous." "It's extremely dangerous." Count me in.")
  • The astronauts sticking it to the program manager when he threatens Glenn's mission;
  • Glenn's ticker-tape parade;
  • John Glenn sticking up for his wife (who had a tremendous stutter at the time)
  • Friendship 7's launch. Complete with an epic use of "Mars" and "Jupiter" from "The Planets."
  • Yeager walking away from the NF-104 crash ("Is that a man?" "You damn right it is!")
  • "Go Hotdog GO!"
  • "And for a brief moment, Gordo Cooper became the greatest pilot anyone had ever seen." (Roll credits)
  • The scene of Yuri Gagarin's launch.
