- The last ten minutes of the film. Starting with the moment we realize Stephen is actually dying...
- "You were the only audience I ever needed."
- Penelope extending her hand to Bloom just like the little girl at the beginning, and him taking it. Probably the most beautiful and human moment in the history of con movies, in this troper's opinion.
- Bloom's narration at the end.
Bloom: And Stephen said something else once. The perfect con is one where everyone involved gets just the thing they wanted.
