The very end at Brokeback Mountain, when Ennis puts his shirt over Jack's.
Ennis straightens his postcard of Brokeback Mountain and says "Jack, I swear."

So many movies, so many scenes, a few favourites though
:
Henry the Fifth , rousing the troops at Agincourt
"Cyrano de Bergerac" , final scene and speech to the Gascony cadets before the battle
"Ferris Bueller's day off" , Chicago parade
"Joyeux Noel" , enemy troops playing football together during the cease-fire
The last 10 minutes from "Nine Queens"
Just about every scene from "The Shawshank Redemption"
"Local Hero " when all the villagers sneak out of the church behind the officials backs

By far my favourite scene is in Black Hawk Down when SFC Randy Shughart and MSG Gary Gordon arrive at the downed helicopter to defend the injured pilot, Michael Durant. In the end they get overrun by Somalis and killed. I guess what makes the scene so powerful is the fact that it really happened and these guys really went in on their own to defend their comrade knowing that they probably wouldn't survive. You just can't believe that anyone can summon such courage and bravery as to do something like that.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off: How could I possibly be expected to go to school on a day like this?

Gattaca: I never saved anything for the way back.

Lord of the Rings: Many scenes, but one that stands out is Gandalf the Gray throwing off his cloak to reveal he's Gandalf the White to the Rohan king under influence of Saruman.

Office Space: Michael, I did absolutely nothing, and it was everything I thought it would be.

Hero: The fight in the rain.

Waking Ned Devine: The last scene, toasting to Ned on the hillside.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail: Almost the whole movie!

- My favorite scene in The Gods Must Be Crazy is when the guy tries to clean the jeep's windshield. Oops!
Oh, and the rhino that puts out fires.

- The killer rabbit in Monty Python and the Holy Grail always cracks me up

- The sequence (accompanied by Psycho War Cry Music) in Election when Tracy freaks out in the hallway and tears down all the campaign posters.

"True Romance" - the scene between Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken - discussing Walken's Sicilian heritage is brilliant

"Caddyshack" - the scene between Bill Murray and Chevy Chase as Chevy is out practicing late at night

"Saving Private Ryan" - opening scene - probably the best ever

"Garden State" - screaming into the ravine scene

Yes, absolutely. I watched it again about a month ago.

Walking through the graveyard, or the scene at Omaha Beach? I agree, AWESOME beginning. Probably the best movie ever made.
