Heartwarming / Bring It On
- Whitney's reaction to her little sister Jamie's cheerleader tryout performance. Whitney initially puts Jamie up for Carver's spot because Jamie is light enough to easily toss and wouldn't complain. Still, everyone is so supportive of her (except Torrance, who wants to find someone with cheerleading credentials) that the scene is kind of sweet. Especially considering the main characters are usually pretty alpha bitchy.
- The East Compton Clovers winning the Championship at the end of the first film. Seriously, they deserved to win after having their routines stolen by the Toros for FIVE YEARS! Not to mention that after the announcement that the Toros won second place happened, everybody on the Toros looked slightly upset, until Courtney, arguably the bitchiest girl on the squad, is the first to shout "Second Place, Hell Yeah!" Even Courtney became a Graceful Loser by the end.
- Torrance and Cliff are still on the outs when the Toros and Clovers get to Nationals, despite Torrance's best efforts to reconcile with Cliff (and Missy telling Cliff to get over himself and let Torrance apologize. When the Toros perform, Cliff realizes that Torrance has mixed part of the mix tape he sent her earlier in the film into the team's routine as a Grand Romantic Gesture.
- Not really. Cliff, Torrance and Missy, the one who shamed Torrance in the first place, respected their opponents.
Mainly it's Courtney and Whitney that start their shenangens.
