In Yellow Submarine, I always liked the part where John repeats what Ringo says!
Also, my favorite part of Eleanor Rigby was always the strings. That would be show stealing from George Martin, though so I don't know if that counts!

How about that great piano intro in While My Guitar Gently Weeps? I know George loved it, I love it, but to me, that was Paul saying "This is going to be a great song, I had better do something awesome!" a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

Another one well it's not a show stealer, I think Happy Nat (was he?) said it in his blog, with I Wanna Be Your Man, the shouts of the guys encouraging Ringo with his songs, they're amazing.

 

John shouting in YS is epic. Also that Paul's laugh in Maxwell's because John mooned him.. that counts also a-hard-days-night-john-2

 

Ringo's drums in ADiL and Rain. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

 

Edit : Paulbass I didn't read the last part of your post when you mention that piano intro. I love it. apple01

George steals the show in Til There Was You, John steals the show with his incredible guitar on Get Back, with his whistle at the end of Two of Us, with his melancholy harmony in I'll Follow the Sun (completely changes the mood of the song), with his harmony in She's Leaving Home, Paul and Ringo steal the show on the Word, Ringo steals the show on Ticket To Ride. Paul obviously has many, many great moments with his harmonies and bass playing, but a few of my favorites would be his harmony in The Ballad Of John And Yoko, that little bass part in Me and My Monkey, although I wouldn't say he steals the show from John's incredible voice on I'm So Tired, I've always liked Paul's effort at matching John's voice on that song.

The She's Leaving Home bit is awesome! Have you ever heard the isolated vocals? It's crazy good, and someone (I think Emerick) tells the story of how John and Paul just sat face-to-face, trying to watch each other's lips to know when to sing right. It's a great example of their fantastic partnership!

Examples:

Most of his greatest bass lines are from songs by one of the others. Keyboard and guitar parts as well (LitSwD, Strawberry Fields, Taxman...).

All You Need Is Love - Paul doing "Come together now!" etc.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps - Piano intro, Bass dominates the song, his "Yeah, yeah, yeah..." at the very end.

 

Can't think of any for the others, honestly...

Maybe John's organ on "I'm down", at least live!
