  • The Flash Gordon Rocket necklace.
    • Gets a nice Call-Back when Terri gives it to Jim near the end of the movie.
      Terri: I wish Woody were here to see you.
      Jim: He is here, Terri.
  • Maggie's speech at her and Jim's party.
    Maggie: In every human culture, Mars has always held a special attraction. I mean, what if that means something? The universe is not chaos. It's connection. Life reaches out for life. That's what we were born for, isn't it? To stand on a new world and look beyond it to the next one. It's who we are.
  • Woody sacrificing himself for Terri is heartwarming and tearjerking at the same time.
  • The fact that Phil refused a direct order from Jim and stayed behind as a massive dust storm made launch conditions worse and worse, just to try and buy more time to get his friends off of Mars.
    Luke: Phil, do you read me?
