Nothing can top this scene for the sheer death and destruction wrought by a product of man's own excursion into atomic energy. It's gritty dark documentary feel and brilliant music score truly create a snapshot of hell:

Others may have come first but no movie creation ever packed the power and fury of the King of the Monsters, Godzilla.

The closing scene from "No Country for Old Men"

Always sends a shiver down my spine when he says "And then I woke up!"

The Fugitive (1993). When Tommy Lee Jones arrives at the train crash site and they interview the cop who was on the bus. He says it's impossible that anyone could've escaped. Then, one of the cops finds handcuffs.


TLJ says: "You know we're always fascinated when we find handcuffs with no hands in them?"
TLJ's colleague says: "Care to revise your statement, sir?"
Cop: "What?"
TLJ: "Care to change your c*** and b*** story?"


I think it's funny.

A scene from another Harrison Ford movie. Frantic (1988). He plays an American doctor attending a medical conference in Paris with his wife. She's kidnapped shortly after they check into their hotel. Towards the end of the movie, he is in a café phoning the U.S. Embassy. They're aware of the kidnapping at this point.


HF: I'm in Café X right now.
Embassy Employee: How do you spell it?


HF is understandably on edge at this point, having come in contact with the Paris underworld.


HF: Well...how do you spell it? Well... With an S, for sh**head.


And then hangs up the phone.

Fatal Attraction - When Dan (Michael Douglas) goes home and as soon as he closes the door he hears Alex (Glenn Close) talking with his wife Beth (Anne Archer) in the living room. When he walks into the living room his wife introduces them !
Can feel Dan was coming unglued ! Excellent acting by Michael Douglas.

I remember seeing this in the theater when it was released - packed theater everyone screaming !

People everywhere were talking about this movie !

Notorious, the scene where Ingrid Bergman realizes she's being poisoned and there's nothing she can do about it.

Oh, there are so, so, so many. A few that haven't been mentioned on this thread:

- Any of the scenes toward the end of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? where Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn's characters are essentially hashing out that if they are going to avoid being hypocrites, then they need to give their blessing re their daughter's hand in marriage.

- The Overseas Highway sequence in True Lies.

- As I mentioned in another thread, the Refund! Refund! Refund! scene in Breaking Away.

- The "wet spot" line from 'About Last Night....' (the 80's movie based on Mamet's play 'Sexual Perversity in Chicago').

- The 'gold chase' through Los Angeles in the 2003 remake of The Italian Job.

- Kevin (Andrew McCarthy) saying to Jules (Demi Moore) "Jules, there is insanity, and then there is the abyss" in St. Elmo's Fire.

- The 'A real man wouldn't shoplift the pooty' scene in Jerry Maguire....in addition to the ending with Ray throwing the baseball in the park, and any of the scenes that demonstrate the depth of love in Marcy and Rod's relationship.
