A Few Good Men when Jack Nicholson says, "You can't handle the truth!"

The line "You can't handle the truth!" was voted the twenty-ninth greatest American movie quote of all-time by the American Film Institute.

This was a great movie with an all star cast.

blessings....Franco

I don't know if anyone here has already posted this, but Jackie Gleason in Smokey And The Bandit, with Burt Reynolds and Sally Field (1977) had some good scenes in there.

One with Sheriff Buford T. Justice and his son were in their car going pretty fast and they see a trailer up ahead blocking the road, and Sheriff Justice doesn't have enough time to stop, so he slams on the brakes and tells his son "Duck or you'll be talkin' out of your a$$". The car goes under the trailer and the top gets sliced off completely and they end up with a convertible!

Son: <Startled> Daddy! The top came off!!!
Sheriff Justice: Nooo sh**!

Another scene from Smokey And The Bandit, Sheriff Justice parks his car on the side of the road and leaves the door open to go talk to a tow truck driver, who was cleaning up an accident scene, which the Bandit (Burt Reynolds) had caused earlier. While he was talking to the tow truck driver, they show a Japanese semi-truck driver coming down the road and he aims to hit the Sheriff's car door. Right before he hits it, he yells "Bonzai!", and tears the driver's side door right off. Sheriff Justice gets out of the way, and after the trucker does his deed, Sheriff Justice raises his fist in anger and yells:

Sheriff: I saw that you som-bitc*!! You did that on purpose! You're goin' away till you're gray! I got the evidence right here! [speaks to his son] Put the evidence in the car.
Son: But Daddy...
Sheriff: Put the evidence in the car!
[shouting to trucker again]
Sheriff: I'm gonna barbeque yo' a$$ in molasses!

One of my favorites is a scene from Imitation of Life. The daughter who has rejected her mother her entire life, runs behind her mother's casket crying for her. When she reaches the casket she's crying, " Momma, Momma. I'm sorry Momma." I cry every time.

The end of Sixth Sense blew me away but the scene that really touches me is when the kid explains to his mother what is going on while they are in the car. Toni Colett shoulda got an oscar.
Loved the ending of "Jagged Edge".

Any part of the movie Rockstar, but too, the best part is when Chris was called for an audition with the real Steel Dragon band after a big blowup with his former Steel Dragon tribute band members. That was awesome!
