  • Matilda's final victory over the Trunchbull.
  • Bruce (the fat kid) eats a whole cake (the size of a fat kid). This is a triumph of the human spirit and not only do the other kids cheer him on, but you will also be tempted to follow suit.
  • Miss Honey also gets a slight one when she finally stands up to the Trunchbull.

 Miss Honey: I am not seven years old anymore, Aunt Trunchbull.

    • Miss Honey also gets one in both the book and the film when she calls Mr. Wormwood out for considering some stupid T.V. show (in the book, it was a soap opera; in the movie, it was a televised boxing match) more important than his daughter.
    • And again when Matilda's dad makes disparaging comments about college-educated people and Miss Honey points out that educated people have a place in the world (if, Heaven forbid, Matilda's dad had a heart attack, the doctor that cared for him would have been college-educated or, if Matilda's dad was sued for selling faulty cars, his lawyer would have been college-educated).
    • Mr Wormwood's I Never Said It Was Poison response:

 Mr Wormwood: What car? Sued by who? Who have you been talking to?!
