Heartwarming / Jacob's Ladder

"You know you look like an angel, Louis? Like an overgrown cherub."

  • The ending, despite this entire movie being a Mind Screw.
  • Combined with Awesome, but when Louis rescues Jacob from the hospital, berating the staff for their "torture" of his patient, leading to the scene below. And even moreso if you believe the "Louis is an angel" theory, as he's deriding the callousness of the other angels in ripping Jacob's life from him forcefully rather than his nuanced, caring approach.
