* Bean is given several in the first movie:
** Bean's goofiness comes dangerously close to completely ruining David's life after he accidentally destroys the portrait of Whistler's Mother. When he realizes how much trouble he's caused his new pal, Bean shows a stunning level of intelligence and competence in fixing the problem when he turns a poster reprint into a dead ringer for the original painting (which he kept and took home with him to England). His heist of the museum is fantastic, making the end all the funnier for the MoodWhiplash.
** His effort in slowly turning an improvised speech about the importance of Whistler's Mother as a piece of art from a set of bungling stammering into an analysis of the worth of familial love.
** He manages to save Detective Brutus's life by accidentally removing a bullet from his abdomen, ''without using any surgical appliances'', while searching for a peanut M&M [[{{Squick}} he dropped into the open wound]].
** He also wakes David's daughter Jennifer from her semi-coma, without inflicting any brain damage. Also by accident.
* In the second movie:
** Bean sneaks from the ''fully-packed'' audience of a cinema into the projectionist booth, ''hijacks the movie'' and replaces it with the footage in his camcorder ''which he also edits on the fly'' to highlight aspiring actress Sabine - all because the PrimaDonnaDirector trimmed out her scenes.
** An earlier scene involving an improvised opera and PietaPlagiarism played for laughs.
