Favorite movie scene?

Did a search...didn't come up with much...probably missed something..oh well.

Just curious..of all the movies that have ever been produced, what is your favorite scene?

Mine. I would say the scene in Dead Poets Society where Robin Williams gets Ethan Hawke in front of the classroom talking about Walt Whitman and a sweaty-toothed madman. Very inspiring.

We rented Blond and Blonder tonight. My favourite scene was when I woke up and saw the credits rolling. No, I did not choose the movie.

I've mentioned it before, but the final scene in "City Lights" is still my favorite so far.

My 5 yr old son's favorite (one of them at least) is the cheerleader tryout scene in Bring It On. Where one of the judges falls out of his chair after one of the contestant's wiggles her butt in his face.

The scene in Kelly's Heroes where Telly Savalas (Big Joe) confronts Donald Sutherland (Oddball) in the tank/armor pool to enlist his help in going behind the lines to get the gold:

Oddball: Hi, man.
Big Joe: What are you doing?
Oddball: I'm drinking wine and eating cheese, and catching some rays, you know. [the look on Sutherland's face says it all- if you've seen this movie, you know what I mean...]
Big Joe: What's happening?
Oddball: Well, the tank's broke and they're trying to fix it.
Big Joe: Well, then, why the hell aren't you up there helping them?
Oddball: [chuckles] I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work.
Big Joe: Christ!
Oddball: Definitely an antisocial type. Woof, woof, woof! That's my other dog imitation.

I agree about Kelly's Heroes. The loyal nazi tank guy blowing the door off the bank to get the nazi gold was pretty hilarious.
