Go To

Fantastic Four

  • Reed tries to kiss an invisible Susan.
    Susan: That's my nose, genius. These are my lips.
    • Then she kisses him, awww.
    • Them rekindling their relationship.
    Sue: There's no me and Victor. There never was.
    Reed: I guess I thought that's what you always wanted. A stronger man.
    [Reed shifts his chin into a Lantern Jaw of Justice, similar to Victor's.]
    Sue: I did. I wanted you to be that man.
  • The Bartender who sticks up for Ben after he accidentally breaks a stool to the amusement of the other patrons.
    Ernie: This is Ben Grimm here. The first mook from Brooklyn to go into outer space. So you pay him some respect.
  • Reed reaching out to Ben after Debbie dumped him, promising to bring him back to normal. He even picks up the engagement ring that Ben, with rock hard hands and only four digits to a hand, cannot grasp.

  • Ben and Alicia's relationship is nothing but sweet.
  • A moment with Johnny on the bridge during the car crash. As soon as he spots a young girl in the middle of the chaos, he climbs over a car to get to her and uses his own body to shied her from the explosion.
    • Also Ben immediately taking action to help the people in danger, despite his own heartbreak.
  • The people on the bridge applauding after Ben pulls the fire truck to safety.
  • At a stoplight, a man in the opposite car insults Johnny by saying he wants to sleep with Sue and picking on Ben's appearance. Johnny responds by setting his wheels on fire. Though he may annoy them on a daily basis, it's pretty obvious that he has a lot of respect for the members of the team, even Ben.


Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

  • The Surfer protecting Sue because she reminds him of his love back on his home planet.
  • "To quote a friend of mine... It's clobberin' time!" Despite the banter between them, it's good to know that Johnny and Ben consider each other friends.
  • Alicia as the bridesmaid at Sue and Reed's first wedding.
    • When the helicopter comes down over the wedding, Alicia, unable to see what's happening, cries out for Ben. Ben puts himself in front of her and takes helicopter blades to the head to stop the tail hitting her.
  • Johnny helping the surfer get into space to try and fight Gah Lak Tus. The surfer smiles at him in reply. Especially prominent because this is the last time any of the Four see him.
  • Reed and Sue getting married at the end, even if the ceremony was a little rushed.
  • The reveal that the surfer didn't die due to his Heroic Sacrifice at the end of the film.
