* It's lost in the gravity of the scene, but Ben patching up Mike's hurt wrist while he's on the phone with Bill - who is about to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, due to having just witnessed Dean's death - is quite sweet as well.


** The music played over the quarry scene leading to the mirror scene mentioned above is entitled ''Nothing Lasts Forever,'' and re-uses some of the themes from the first film, notably ''Beverly'' and ''Blood Oath.'' It gives the viewer a sense of longing for the good old days, for the time when the all seven Losers were still together, but at the same time, you also get the feeling that all five of them - no matter what happens now - are ready to start moving forward and face whatever else life has to offer, especially now that they've got each other in their lives again.

** If one listens closely, you can hear Richie calling for Eddie all the way across the room, and whenever the camera cuts back to him, he's got am extremely worried expression on his face, the only thing stopping him from running over to Eddie being the monsters attacking them. OneTrueLove, indeed.



* Richie giving Eddie a [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre pep talk]] after the latter freezes up in Neibolt's kitchen. Despite the fact that he'd almost died mere seconds ago, Richie still takes the time to reassure Eddie that he isn't TheLoad, that it's perfectly fine to feel scared, and even manages to get a jibe in on Eddie's wife while he's at it. Classic Richie Tozier indeed.

* Richie giving Eddie a [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre pep talk]] after the latter freezes up in Neibolt's kitchen. Despite the fact that thinks he's too weak to go down into IT's lair with them, seeing as he'd frozen up in the kitchen earlier, which almost died mere seconds ago, resulted in Richie dying. Despite this fact, Richie still takes the time to reassure firmly, yet gently tell Eddie that he isn't TheLoad, that it's perfectly fine to feel scared, and even manages to get a jibe in on Eddie's wife while he's at it. Classic Richie Tozier indeed.



** It's even more heartwarming when you realize that that exact same fence post was what enabled Eddie to stab and weaken Pennywise when he had Richie trapped in it's Deadlights, therefore saving the man who, despite him not knowing, had loved him deeply since they were kids.

to:

--> '''Eddie:''' (''nods gratefully'') Thanks, Bev.

Added DiffLines:

** Eddie, who had reached shore first, is left alone after the others go back to save Beverly. He's clearly unnerved with every passing second, repeatedly muttering that he just wants to go home, that he's scared, but as soon as they resurface, Eddie visibly breathes a huge sigh of relief, muttering "Oh, thank God!" under his breath when he sees they're all okay.


** Examples include Eddie remembering how he patched Ben's wound up on the first day the Losers met him, Eddie and Richie arm-wrestling, and Richie and Beverly seemingly going in for a romantic kiss ... before Beverly shoves a mouthful of food into his open mouth, much to the group's laughter.

** The music playing during that scene, aptly entitled "Losers Reunited," helps a lot, too. It perfectly captures the feeling of seeing your best friends after being away from each other for so long, and yet, still being able to laugh and joke around as if no time had passed at all.



* During the chaos of having Pennywise appear in the Chinese restaurant in the form of the demonic fortune cookies, Eddie is visibly panicking and cowering in the corner. Instead of giving him shit about it, considering they're all adults now instead of pre-teen kids, Ben takes it upon himself to hold onto Eddie and shield him while Mike tries to smash the monsters to bits. The extra heartwarming bit? Ben is obviously just as scared as the rest of them, but he keeps enough presence of mind about to keep shoving Eddie behind him, arms extended and ready to bat the monsters away should they come near him and one of his best friends.

* Bill and Mike exchanging platonic "I love you"'s before ending their phone call, and Mike telling Bill that should he ever need anything, he can always give Mike a call. Bill accepts the offer with the brightest smile we've seen him give since the movie began.

* Like in the book, after defeating IT, the Losers wander back into downtown Derry, where they see their reflections in a department store window: the whole gang, as children, looking at them with pride and happiness. And among them are Eddie and Stan, giving their final farewell. The movie really stressed the beauty that their childhoods and their friendship really were.

* Seeing the losers reminiscing in the old clubhouse Ben made as children. Anybody who’s ever taken a trip down memory lane to their favorite childhood places can relate to the feeling of nostalgia rushing through them. Cutting back between the child and adult actors also helps.

** What helps sell this and makes it even more heartwarming is how their lives turned out before they reunited. Ben became a luxurious millionaire who has nobody to share his love with and missed out on the only girl who ever cared for him. Meanwhile, Bev ended up marrying an abusive jerk who’s just as controlling, demanding and sex obsessed as her father. Even without the torment IT put them through in the film, the fact that they finally settled down together is nice to see. EarnYourHappyEnding indeed.

** Also unlike the book, Stan's suicide is not an act of despair and terror, but pure love. Stan knows he's too scared to go back to Derry and face Pennywise again, and without all of them as one, Pennywise will win. So he removes himself from the board, knowing they'll carry his memory into battle with them, and he'll be there in spirit. He leaves a note for them in case of their victory, affirming his love of them and his belief in their strength.

* Although it's a tearjerker as well, Richie going back to the Kissing Bridge and re-carving the 'R + E' graffiti he had done as a boy. The teary smile he gives as he sees their names sitting together will melt even the coldest of hearts.

* Mike keeps a picture of his grandfather next to his bed. As stern as the man was, Mike clearly loved him.
* While it’s intended to be a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments funny moment]], the scene where Eddie say ''[[FreudianSlip I love you, mommy]]'' to his wife is actually quite charming to hear, especially since the last we saw Eddie with his mother was when he disowned her for lying to him about being sick. It really goes to show that, even after the lies, deep down he still loves his mom.
* The Losers’ Club reunion. They don’t really remember being friends or why they’re all together again, but they’re joking and having fun with each other like they did as kids.

* A brief flashback scene shows all the losers piling into a photo booth to take silly pictures together, in one of the few instances where we see them getting to just have fun and act like normal kids. Twenty-seven years later, it's shown that Mike still has the strip of photos.

It's not too far of a stretch to think that every time he felt like giving up, he'd only have to take one look at his friends' goofy faces and gain strength all over again.



* When Bill encounters Dean after his experience with IT, he actively warns the kid to move out of Derry as soon as possible after the kid says he’s been hearing voices in the tub and even pulls him away from the open sewer hole where Georgie died immediately after seeing him. Even after 27 years Bill still kept his big brother mentality and is willing to help any other kid struggling with IT. [[TearJerker Unfortunately it doesn’t end well for either of them]].

* During the Ritual of Chüd when the losers burn their tokens, Eddie puts in one of the shower caps Stan brought to them when they first built the clubhouse. It’s nice to see that, even during their final battle, they still acknowledge that Stanley is with them in spirit.

** At the end of the film, it's also notable that when Ben asks Beverly how she slept the previous night, she gives him a dazzling smile and says that she had a beautiful dream. It's a lovely change from the Beverly who has been plagued by nothing but nightmares for the last twenty-seven years.

** It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, but as he writes his letters for the Losers, you can see an envelope addressed to his wife, Patty, as well. Before Mike's phone call, the two had been chatting happily about taking a trip to Buenos Aires, and judging from the way Patty can barely talk about his passing on the phone with Bev, it's incredibly obvious that they loved each other very much.


Added DiffLines:

** As he does this, Stan reads his letter to the Losers via voice-over. It probably isn't a coincidence that as Richie carves, Stan's voice says "Be who you wanna be. Be proud."


* Bill, suffering a DespairEventHorizon after Dean's death, vows to kill IT himself and rushes to the Neibolt House alone, only to be stopped the other Losers before he goes in, and we get this, cementing the Losers' status as TrueCompanions.
