* In perhaps the best of Stan Lee's cameos (and Stan the Man's personal favourite), he muses on the impact of Spider-Man in fictional New York to Peter Parker. It's easy to interpret it as Stan talking about the greatest lesson comic book superheroes (particularly Spider-Man) try to teach their readers:

* In perhaps the best of Stan Lee's Creator/StanLee's cameos (and Stan the Man's personal favourite), he when Peter stops to read a marquee declaring that Spider-Man will be given the key to the city, Stan walks up next to him and briefly muses on the impact of Spider-Man in fictional New York to Peter Parker.that Spidey has had. It's easy to interpret it as Stan talking about the greatest lesson comic book superheroes (particularly Spider-Man) try to teach their readers:


* Harry's [[spoiler:arrival just in time to help Peter take on the Sandman and Venom. Peter's no longer fighting alone and is now part of a superhero duo]]. And then afterwards, his and Peter's conversation [[spoiler:just before his death]], which also counts as a TearJerker.

And then afterwards, his and Peter's conversation [[spoiler:just just before his death]], death, which also counts as a TearJerker.



** Even more than that: they've both just [[spoiler: lost their mutual best friend]] and put each other through hell, but he comes back to her, and there's the implicit recognition when she takes his hand to dance with her that he won't let her suffer alone, and they'll work through their issues together. Bottom line: when all is said and done, they love each other.

Added DiffLines:

* Robbie standing up for Peter and reminding Jameson how long Peter's been working with the Bugle when Jameson floats the staff photographer job.


* After Peter has shed himself of the alien symbiote and sits alone depressed in his apartment, Aunt May visits Peter to see how things have gone between her nephew and his fiance and asks if he's proposed to her yet. Peter tells his aunt that he's not ready for marriage because he had hurt Mary Jane badly and returns the proposal ring Aunt May gave him earlier in the movie, much to Aunt May's shock. In response, Aunt May replies by saying that Peter should forgive himself and that Aunt May believes Peter will do the right thing because she knows he's a good person and she knows he will find a way to make things right again and to give it time. This scene also serves as a TearJerker moment.

* Mr. Ditkovich, Peter's apartment landlord, brushing off the angry outburst Peter (who was under the symbiote's influence) just dealt on him, assuring his daughter that Peter is a good boy, and then quickly forgiving Peter later on when the latter comes to apologize. Furthermore, Mr. Ditkovich lends Peter some romantic advice upon learning that Peter plans to propose to Mary Jane. Heartwarming in retrospect, when one considers his portrayal from the previous films as a bullying asshole.

* Peter finally forgiving Flint after learning that his shooting of Uncle Ben was an accident (caused by Carradine, so Peter still shares blame for not stopping him when he had the chance), and that Flint actually didn't flee with Carradine in Uncle Ben's car because he stayed behind at Uncle Ben's side and ''he'' was the one who called for help, explaining the crowd of people around the dying Uncle Ben when Peter arrived on the scene.

Especially so since he's carried the weight of his death throughout the entire trilogy, and he finally managed to find closure.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, before he was shot, Uncle Ben could see right away that Flint was just desperate and scared and tried to talk him down.


-->'''Aunt May:''' It was a beautiful day and he said, 'Let's swim to the island.' And at the island, we found a perfect spot by an old tree. And we laid down, and looked up at the sky.

Added DiffLines:

* In the game, there is a part where Jameson almost thanks Spiderman for saving him. Even though he stops himself from saying it half-way through, Spiderman still tells him "You're welcome".


* Gwen Stacy, who is shown throughout the film to be nothing more than a beautiful person on the outside and [[SpoiledSweet inside]]. She is smarter, richer, and generally portrayed as a better partner for Peter than MJ, but she respects their relationship and makes a point to ask whether Peter wants to avoid MJ after their messy breakup during their date ([[{{Jerkass}} he intentionally refuses]]). And when she realizes [[OperationJealousy the real reason why Peter asked her out]], she apologizes to MJ in person and leaves Peter in disgust.

** It's even better meta-wise: in the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen planned]] fourth film, Peter and MJ would have been married for several years, before separating at the end. With the cancellation of ''Spider-Man 4'', Raimi just saved the couple a '''lot''' of trouble, closing out the trilogy with their reconciliation.
