* Nicky's interrogation of Tony Dogs is not only one of this film's signature scenes, but iconic in the hearts of filmgoers because of how crazily over the top it is overall. Nicky not only compels him to cooperate ("Don't make me a bad guy here!"), and berates him for defending the local lowlife ("CHARLIE M? YOU MAKE ME POP YOUR FUCKING EYEBALL OVER CHARLIE M?!?") This scene is Awesome for not only crossing the line, but for [[CrossesTheLineTwice crossing it, cutting its head off]], and [[UpToEleven using its skull for a planter.]]

* The WhamLine of Nicky's narration at the end of the movie, where he's trying to work back into the mob's good graces by making peace with Frank [[spoiler:only to have Frank [[BreakingTheFourthWall interrupt the narration]] with a bat to Nicky's knee. It's a moment that breaks the flow of the movie - that hypnotic overlap of stream-of-conscious dialog that kept audiences paying attention - and signals how Nicky's no longer in control of anything as he and his brother are led to their deaths.]] A virtuoso move by Scorsese.

* Amy standing up to Lester, protesting against [[ItMakesSenseInContext dying her hair]] and despite repeatedly threatened and yelled at, she doesn't lose her cool and keeps taunting him. Most kids in this kind of situation in movies would be crying or begging to go home, but Amy is pretty tough!

Instead of your typical mob methods [[spoiler: he offers the whale a free flight home, except the plane has "problems", the connecting flights are all 'booked up' and Billy Sherbert 'apologetically' comps him another night's stay at the Tangiers, where he keeps playing and blows all of his winnings and $1,000,000 more back to Sam.
