Ahh...makes me teary just thinking about it.
Great scene.
OMG,
I have seen Bridges probably 15 times and that scene still makes me cry.

I was *pregnant* when I saw that one. (think about it)

Other favorite scenes:

The Tango scene in Soldier of Orange: Erik (Dutch, behind WWII enemy lines, tangoes with an old friend who is now a high ranking German officer) The scene drips with irony, regret, and dark humor.

Fly Away Home
The cinematography of this film, based on a true story of teaching young geese to migrate, is nothing less than breathtaking.
I never get tired of it.
It is a story of healing, of making things better. The ending is so wrenching yet so peaceful--to me, that's a pretty good metaphor for life.

I think there is an argument that Eraserhead is basically a bad dream dreamt by a guy who is newly married (maybe not) and expecting. The tormented girlfriend/wife, getting to know the in-laws, the mysterious and unreachable attractive woman across the hall, fears about the baby, etc.

I like the scene in American Psycho where they're showing off their business cards. To anyone who works with or is an executive, they know that for some completely ridiculous reason, business cards are actually the hype of the office.

I also like the scene in the big Mr. Bean film when the turkey explodes out of the microwave. A true classic.

wow, so many good ones already

1) about a million of them from Animal House: Flounder with the horse in the Dean's office, the famous Belushi "germans bombing pearl harbor speech"...

2) Godfather II when Keaton tells Pacino she had an abortion

3) Boogie Nights--the scene where the three guys are sitting in the drug dealer's house (with fake drugs), Sister Christian playing in the background, the short guy blowing off firecrackers every few seconds--wow that was tense

4) Braveheart when the scots meet the irish in the battle..and then join up together

5) The opening speech in Patton

Mel Gibson's The Passion of The Christ, when Jesus is being crucified, and Roman soldiers are pounding the nails into his hands and feet and he shouts (in Aramaic) "Father forgive them, they know not what they do!" - That right there says it all about Jesus and how much he loved us, despite our human imperfections, and also how God is willing to forgive us for our inequities.
