  • Bernard revealing the Director's secret by bringing Linda and John with him to his would-have been transfer to Iceland.
  • At the end of John and Mond's debate, John decides that he wants the freedom and the unhappiness with these defiant words:
    But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness, I want sin.'
    'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy.'
    'All right then,' said the Savage defiantly, 'I'm claiming the right to be unhappy.'
    'Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have syphilis and cancer; the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.
    'I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.
  • Helmholtz breaking free of his societal conditioning — with a laugh — and coming to John's aid in the fight over soma.
    "Ford help him!" said Bernard, and averted his eyes.
    "Ford helps those who help themselves." And with a laugh, actually a laugh of exultation, Helmholtz Watson pushed his way through the crowd.
