  • A very brief but meaningful moment between Jonathan and Ardeth. Things are looking bad for Ardeth, one of the mooks sneaks up behind him and almost offs him. Jonathan manages to pop the baddie off from a distance, Ardeth then gives him a silent nod of thanks. A few minutes before Ardeth was insulting Jonathan's ability to kill anything. Very nice moment.
  • "Would you like to know what Heaven looks like?" "Later." *Cue Big Damn Kiss*
    • Novel version: "Nah. Hell, I already know."
    • Also from the novel, Rick and Evy's relationship mixes with Tear Jerker, as after Anck-su-namun leaves him to die, Imhotep looks up at them and with a ghost of a smile, acknowledges their love is much stronger than his and Anck's ever was.
