  • Ethan saving the life of the French policewoman who gets wounded by Zola's men. She was only doing her job even if she was a Spanner in the Works for the IMF team, and Ethan doesn't hesitate to gun Zola's men down before they can finish her off. He then does his best to reassure her (in French) and helps her call her colleagues with her car's radio before fleeing the scene with the rest of the team.
  • There's some very subtle heartwarming in the "I know you have your reasons" scene; if you listen very closely, you can hear that Ethan's full line is "I never wanted to hurt you." He even reaches out to take Ilsa's hand when he says it, though it's not fully visible on camera.
  • The reunion between Ilsa and Ethan during the Hospital Epilogue. They barely say a word to each other, but they don't have to. The glowing looks on their faces and the tender way they touch each other say more than enough.
    • Just to make the above scene sweeter, Julia implicitly gives her blessing to Ethan and Ilsa's budding relationship.
