* At the end of the film, just before the press conference, Tony and Pepper finally talk about their AlmostKiss at the party. Pepper at first seems bashful about it, making sure that he's talking about the night where they danced and went up on the roof and he went to get her a drink...[[BaitAndSwitch and never came back, leaving her up there alone.]] Especially funny is how the swelling romantic music just immediately stops cold.
-->'''Pepper:''' Is that the night you're talking about?
-->'''Tony:''' (sheepish) Mm-hm.

Added DiffLines:

** What makes this infinitely better is that [[spoiler:the scientist ''returns in a pivotal role'' for ''Film/SpiderManFarFromHome'', meaning that this guy is the only character to have appeared in the very first film of the [=MCU=], and then got PutOnABus ''all the way'' until the very end of the Thanos MythArc. There's a BrickJoke, and then there's a ''Brick Character!'']]

Added DiffLines:

** The simple fact that the first thing he wanted upon returning was "an American cheeseburger". He also wanted to hold a press conference, but "cheeseburger first".


** Flying with stabilizers (and the thrust capacity at 2,5%) goes a lot better than during the first test, but still not exactly well. Tony can barely control his movements, leading him to drift out of the testing area, nearly crashing into his own car(s) and sending papers flying everywhere as he hovers over his desk. All the while making increasingly panicked noises.
