Your favorite (unforgettable) scenes from movies or TV shows

Recommended Posts

If you add spoiler scenes from images or video like YouTube, please use the spoiler tag!


One of the Pink Panther films (Return of the Pink Panther I think) with Peter Sellers where he is standing in his apartment and hears a sawing sound and can't place it, so he hyperventilates to copy the sound (thinking it's breathing) only to find his assistant is cutting a hole in the floor, which he falls through.


Hilarious! IMDB:

Training Day (major spoilers,don't look if you haven't seen the movie)

Rambo 1

The best acting Stallone ever had.

From Charlie Kaufman's Adaptation:


McKee scribbles a diagram onto a transparency in an overhead

projector. It's some kind of complicated time-line with act-

breaks and corresponding page numbers indicated. The

audience members take copious notes. Kaufman sweats.


It is my weakness, my ultimate lack of

conviction that brings me here with all

these desperate idiots lapping up

everything this bag of wind spouts. Easy

answers. Rules to short-cut yourself to

success. And here I am, because my jaunt

into the abyss brought me nothing. Well,

isn't that the risk one takes for

attempting something new. I should leave

here right now. I'll start over --

(starts to rise)

I need to face this project head on and --


... and God help you if you use voice-

over in your work, my friends.

Kaufman stops, looks up, startled. McKee seems to be looking

at him.


God f***ing help you! It's flaccid,

sloppy writing. Any idiot can write

voice-over narration to explain the

thoughts of a character. You must

present the internal conflicts of your

character in image, in symbol. Film is a

medium of movement and image.


It's not really a scene per say, but more a quote:

"Everything is more complicated than you think. You only see a tenth of

what is true. There are a million little strings attached to every

choice you make; you can destroy your life every time you choose. But

maybe you won't know for twenty years. And you'll never ever trace it

to its source. And you only get one chance to play it out. Just try and

figure out your own divorce. And they say there is no fate, but there

is: it's what you create. Even though the world goes on for eons and

eons, you are here for a fraction of a fraction of a second. Most of

your time is spent being dead or not yet born. But while alive, you

wait in vain, wasting years, for a phone call or a letter or a look

from someone or something to make it all right. And it never comes or

it seems to but doesn't really. And so you spend your time in vague

regret or vaguer hope for something good to come along. Something to

make you feel connected, to make you feel whole, to make you feel

loved. And the truth is I'm so angry and the truth is I'm so ****ing

sad, and the truth is I've been so ****ing hurt for so ****ing long and

for just as long have been pretending I'm OK, just to get along, just

for, I don't know why, maybe because no one wants to hear about my

misery, because they have their own, and their own is too overwhelming

to allow them to listen to or care about mine. Well, **** everybody.

Amen."- Said by the minister in Synecdoche, New York, again, by Charlie Kaufman.

Charlie Kaufman remains to be one of my favorite screen playists of all time.

The mist ending and the part in pulp fiction when the dude get his head blown off in the car.

How did The Mist end in the movie?

In the short story it ended with everyone trapped in the grocery store and no apparent end in sight to the 'event.'

The "Mexican" standoff and the end of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

The "ear" scene in Reservoir Dogs. I can't hear Stuck in the Middle with You without doing Michael Madsen's little dance.

Rutger Hauer's death speech at the end of Bladerunner. Hauer always has great death scenes, it must be in his contract somewhere.

The opening scene of Wings of Desire.

Alec Guinness' walk from the box to see the camp commander in The Bridge on the River Kwai.

Gregory Peck and David Niven's argument over what to do with the traitor in the Guns of Navarone.

The Normandy assault scene at the start of Saving Private Ryan.

Portman and Braff's kiss in Garden State. (so sue me)

I thought the mist ended when he killed his kid and the army then went past to indicate it was over? I might need to go back!

When the Bride fights the crazy 88 in Kill Bill.

The top of Devil's Tower in Close Encounter.

The Battle of Hornburg (Helm's Deep) in LOTR: Two Towers.

The Chopper ride in Apocalypse Now.

The final salon scene in Unforgiven.

I could go on. But I don't think the best films really have standout scenes.
