Favorite Movie Scene

There's so many but here's a few:

Bridges of Madison County - Clint Eastwood is standing in the rain looking at Meryl Streep (great powerful scene w/o anything being said)

Fatal Attraction - Well besides the entire movie ! Here is another powerful scene w/o anything being said - Michael Douglas goes to Glenn Close loft and breaks in the door - they have a lengthy fight.

Vacation - I really like when Christie Brinkley drives by in the Ferrari !

Rocky - When Rocky and Adrian have their first kiss.

As Good as it Gets - Besides the entire movie - I love when Jack Nickelson forgets to lock the door, he didn't have to go through his door locking/unlocking routine (toward the end of movie)

Top Gun - I saw this at a Drive-In - Love all the jet scenes !

What are some of your favorites.

I too have many favourites, not least:-

The shocking reveal of Keyser Soze at the end of "The Usual Suspects"
The Tears in the Rain soliloquy by Rutger Hauer in "BladeRunner"
The "who is holding my hand?" scene in "The Haunting (1963)"
The chestbusting scenes from "Alien"
The chess game on the seashore between Death & Antonius Bloc in "The Seventh Seal"
The lesbian passion scene in "Desert Hearts"
The final parting-of-the-ways scene between father and son at the end of "Pelle: the Conqueror"

Ooh, these are hard to come up with off the top of my head, but I'll give it a shot:

Two back-to-back scenes: The discussion regarding appropriate retaliation for a foot rub and the following interrogation about the suitcase "Pulp Fiction"

The "reading one another scene" with Bond and Vesper on the train "Casino Royale (2006)"

The cliff-climb and subsequent, "I am not left handed" swordfight scene "The Princess Bride"

The maelstrom combat scene "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End"

I imagine I'll be popping back in this thread as I think of them.

Animal House - the marching band marches down the blind alley, and tries to turn around at the end.
When a Stranger Calls (1979) - the final scene in the bedroom.
Dazed and Confused - Cynthia, Mike and Tony discussing their future while driving around town; Cynthia asks what they're preparing for, and Mike resignedly says "Death". Or Carl's mom coming out of the house with a shotgun and tells O'Banion to get off her lawn.
Toy Story - Woody tells Sid the toys are watching him ...
Duck Soup - Rufus T. Firefly's introduction to Freedonia, during which Firefly remarks to Mrs. Teasdale that she hasn't stopped talking since he arrived, and then tells her: "You must have been vaccinated with a phonograph needle".
The American President - the President's first phone call to Sydney.
What's Up, Doc? - car chase

One of my very favorite scenes is the end of Field of Dreams when Ray meets his dad.

Donnie Darko- Drew Barrymore just looses it and screams out F**K. The scene is so powerful and it has a lot of deep meaning/metaphors in regard to the plot line as a whole.
