Jack and Ray Reunited by Spider-Man

In the movie "The Amazing Spider-Man," Ray is played by C. Thomas Howell and is the father of Jack, played by Jake Keiffer.
Jack would've definitely died had Spider-Man not saved him from the burning, suspended car hanging over the Williamsburg Bridge. The Lizard was responsible for this, and it was the very first time that Peter Parker, acting, for the first official time, as Spider-Man, encountered his mentor, Dr. Connors, in his reptilian form. Likewise, it was the very first time the Lizard had met his protege, Peter Parker, in his superhero arachnid form.
But anyway, Spider-Man saved Jack's life and others' that night on the bridge, and Peter couldn't help but notice that Jack was around the same age Peter was when he lost his parents. As Ray hugged his rescued son, it sadly only reminded Peter that he had no father or mother, and now no uncle. Even with his mask on, Peter's emotions were obvious. Still, Peter now realized he could use his new gifts to help people rather than simply act on his vendetta against his Uncle Ben's killer. This helped Peter establish his identity as Spider-Man.
Then, later in the movie, after Spider-Man was injured and needed help to get to OsCorp Tower in time to defeat the Lizard, Ray, a construction worker, ordered his co-workers to use their cranes to help Spider-Man, who recognized Ray and silently acknowledged his own gratitude to him as Ray smiled back at Spider-Man. In fact it was Ray who saved Spider-Man's life, as he would've taken a fatal fall, but Ray helped him by grabbing him with his crane.
I'm glad Spider-Man saw Ray - and in fact all of New York - coming to his aid. After all, Ray and his co-workers have no superhuman abilities – just like we don't – and yet they were able to help someone who did.
I liked this part of the movie because it really shows that what goes around comes around. In other words, we eventually get rewarded for our good deeds - and our own good deeds do not go unrecognized.
