Added DiffLines:

** The awesomeness of this, especially for the production team, is incalculable. They managed three things about this.
*** Firstly, the entire medley is genuinely done using short-press tones, rather than some 'close enough' tones. In the modern day, this would be easy, and there's probably programmes that could replicate the entire thing. Not when they made this film.
*** Secondly, at least for 'He-l-p Me Rho-n-da, He-l-p He-l-p Me Rho-n-da,', they speak OUT LOUD the exact series of key tones.

* Johnny's RedEyesTakeWarning when Stephanie is threatened by Frank, who's holding the drive shaft from his car that Johnny just dismantled. He then uses his laser to slice the drive shaft apart (piece-by-piece at that), followed by zapping the brim of the guy's hat, the heels of his boots and the belt buckle on his pants. The result is complete humiliation, with the worst damage to the guy being his feet being a little crispy, and still oh-so-badass.

** As a bonus, each of #5's laser blasts is accompanied by an exaggerated martial-arts yell. Just because he's a pacifist doesn't mean J-Five can't have a little fun.
