- Police Academy
- "DON'T MOVE, DIRTBAG!!!"
- At the start of the film, two Jerkass cadets are commenting about how many black people there are. Cue a reproachful look from Hightower (play by football star Bubba Smith), which makes them change their tune.
- Before that, Hightower (thanks to some tutoring by Mahoney) OWNS the driving course; even Harris is impressed.
- After a group of rioters trap Jones, Mahoney, George and Lassard in Lassard's car, Jones grabs the PA system mic from Lassard and imitates gunfire, dispersing the group.
- Cadet Leslie Barbara gets to be badass twice in the first film. The first time had him stand up for Mahoney after Mahoney had just saved him from the two cadets who had been bulling him all year. The second time has him beat the shit out of the gang that bullied him at the start of the film ( though it turned out they weren't stealing anything, they're moving out due to the city-wide riot, oops.)
- Own stuff nothing, they decided to menace a police officer (more or less) during a citywide riot. Too dumb to not get beat up, perhaps?
- The firing range scene. Everybody is firing away with their standard issue revolvers. Cue Tackleberry with a Hand Cannon obliterating his target. Of further note is that the normally shouty Harris is noticeably subdued during this scene and politely asks Tackleberry if he can borrow his Hand Cannon and handles it like it was hot plutonium.
- Capt. Lassards Big Damn Heroes moment in Their First Assignment, successfully bluffing Zed with an unloaded gun. Says the man himself, I havent carried live ammo since 73.
- The entire climax of Back in Training.
- Commadant Lassard beating up a mook.
- Lassard taking out the diamond thief in Assignment Miami Beach, after being informed that its not a training scenario being acted out, but an actual hostage situation. There's a reason Cloud Cuckoo Lander Lassard rose to his high position in the first place.
- Tackleberry showing up a mook with his marksmanship skill. The mook uses his submachine gun to create a Smiley face on a wall; Tackleberry uses his own to spell out "HAVE A NICE DAY" underneath it.
- The final scene of the sixth film: Harris finds himself the victim of a doozy of a prank - sitting on a chair and hanging on for dear life as it floats over the city, thanks to the dozens upon dozens of helium balloons tied to it. Turns out it was none other than Commandant Lassard himself who set Harris up, payback for being ridiculed by the captain over the course of several movies.
- In the fourth film, thieves get the drop on Tackleberry during a robbery. Cue the elderly Mrs. Feldman crashing through the window on Tackleberry's bike to turn the tables.
