* At the end features Johnny at Folsom starting off the legendary concert where he not only calls the prisoners his best audience, tips his hat to them, and throws a glass of dirty water down to the ground, but also shouts "This one's for your Warden!" before singing "Cocaine Blues"
* June grows tired of Johnny's constant marriage propositions and flatly states he is only allowed to talk to her on stage. [[Heartwarming/{{Film}} He later interrupts the concert to propose marriage to her in front of a crowd of hundreds.]]
* Johnny's dealer shows up to his new house just after Thanksgiving, and is promptly told to leave. By June's father. At shotgun-point. [[NeverMessWithGranny Look closely and you can see that sweet old Mother Maybelle Carter is also wielding a shotgun.]]
* The entirety of Reese Witherspoon's performance.

** Or can we acknowledge that Joaquin completely improvised ''pulling an entire sink out of a wall?''
