* Puddleglum the Marsh-Wiggle's ShutUpHannibal speech to the Lady of the Green Kirtle at the most critical point of the story. He stands up to an enchantment which is causing him and the rest of the protagonists to forget not only their mission, but that the world beyond Underland ever existed - first by stomping on a fire with his bare foot, and second:

Added DiffLines:

* It's been noted that Eustace and Jill's apologies to each other about their behavior are completely sincere apologies, without even a hint that the other person is at fault for the apology being necessary; that takes great maturity and it's something even adults can struggle to manage.


* Right at the end of the book, Eustace and Jill return to their school in full Narnian attire, swords and all, and prove that they have [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]] in the course of their journey by terrifying the bullies of the school. Of course, the fact that Aslan comes too probably helps.

* The story of how Prince Rilian got lost in the first place: Drinian goes to Caspian and confesses that it's his own fault that Rilian went back to see the green lady. Caspian angrily [[AxCrazy grabs an axe and goes to kill him]], and Drinian just stands there ready to take it - and Caspian drops the axe and says that if he had to lose his son, he doesn't want to lose his best friend as well, and they hug.

** Just incredible. To this day this speech plays a large part in the reason that I still hold on to my religious faith.
** Amen.
** [[{{Tropers/Betterthanstrawberry}} This atheist troper]] considers the speech one of the greatest moments in the series.
** Whether one is religious or not, the message is still a good one; HopeSpringsEternal.

-->"Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things -- trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Supose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that's a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We're just babies making up a game, if you're right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play-world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia."
