The Crossing Guard...the very ending

Perfect Storm...when they're going out in the ocean...

Message in a Bottle....when they're on the beach thowing pop corn at each other

The Earthling...when he yells to William Holden his name

The Champ...when TJ cries to his father and begs him to stay...

Pride and Prejudice...When Lizzie Tells Lady Kathern that she has insulted her and she needed to leave.

Both - but the beach scene stands out as maybe the best piece of cinematography ever.

This is one that sticks in my memory:

In Shawshank Redemption, the convicts standing in the prison yard, in a state of rapture listening to an Italian opera singer piped in over the prison sound system. It's so far removed from reality, and such a stretch of the imagination that it becomes unforgettable once viewed.

blessings....Franco

The Warriors, near the end where they have been followed back to coney island by the Rogues and Luther starts to sing "warriors come out to play" while tapping the bottles

I don't know about 'for all time'... but some of my favorite scenes--sad, powerful, disturbing, or funny--from recent DVD rentals have been:

Rear Window - where the killer looks back across the courtyard at Jimmy Stewart and knows he's being watched

Napoleon Dynamite - where he tosses the food to the llama

Signs - where you see the alien's movement in the reflection of the tv set

Priscilla Queen of the Desert - where the guy is on top of the bus, singing with the long trail of fabric flying in the wind

Fast Food Nation - the scene toward the end where the woman walks into the killing room at the plant

Cinema Paradisio - where all the romantic edits have been recompiled

House of Sand and Fog - the scene in the hospital toward the end

Being John Malkovich - where he first discovers the portal that everyone has been using

When this movie was beaten out for best picture by "Shakespeare In Love" I gave up on watching award shows.

Not sure if this counts as a "scene" but I love the lift they do near the end of the dance in the end of the movie Dirty Dancing.
