"Wow! I never thought of it like that!" Can't Post

This question perhaps works better if you went in to your first viewing of AUJ fairly spoiler-free (as did I), but even if you didn't, maybe you can answer anyways. (And of course I'm assuming you were familiar with the book first.)

What about the movie, or which part of the movie, most made you stop and think "Wow! I never thought of it like that!"? PJ and co. have done a far bit of extrapolation and expansion, reading between the lines, etc., and I daresay what most of us saw onscreen differed from what we'd seen in our imaginations when reading the book. So what gave you the most pause for thought? What got you thinking the most? Where did you think "Wow!" the loudest? Maybe the first time you saw the movie, or maybe several times later (if you're like me, it might take you a while to get on with your thinking...).
