Thread: OMG.....another kinda silly movie topic: what's your alltime favorite scene?

ABBDutchFan - 12/15/2011 at 06:25 PM

Okay, tuff choice but what is your alltime favorite scene from a motion picture?
A spectacular action scene, famous kiss, cool dialogue, last words of a dying hero / villian....

I would opt for:

Monty Python & The Holy Grail: the dialogue between King Arthur and the peasant (named Dennis) working in the field.



King Arthur: Old woman.
Dennis: Man.
King Arthur: Man, sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?
Dennis: I'm 37.
King Arthur: What?
Dennis: I'm 37. I'm not old.
King Arthur: Well I can't just call you "man".
Dennis: Well you could say "Dennis".
King Arthur: I didn't know you were called Dennis.
Dennis: Well you didn't bother to find out did you?
King Arthur: I did say sorry about the "old woman", but from behind you looked...
Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treat me like an inferior.
King Arthur: Well I am king.
Dennis: Oh, king eh? Very nice. And how'd you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers. By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society.

------

King Arthur: I am your king.
Woman: Well I didn't vote for you.
King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.
Woman: Well how'd you become king then?
[Angelic music plays... ]
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.
Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

------

Dennis: Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.


------

Dennis: Oh but if I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

-----

Dennis: Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I'm being repressed!
King Arthur: Bloody peasant!
Dennis: Oh, what a giveaway! Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about! Did you see him repressing me? You saw him, Didn't you?

From Horse Feathers:

Baravelli: [through speakeasy's door] Who are you?
Professor Wagstaff: I'm fine, thanks, who are you?
Baravelli: I'm fine too, but you can't come in unless you give the password.
Professor Wagstaff: Well, what is the password?
Baravelli: Aw, no. You gotta tell me. Hey, I tell what I do. I give you three guesses. It's the name of a fish.
Professor Wagstaff: Is it Mary?
Baravelli: Ha-ha. That's-a no fish.
Professor Wagstaff: She isn't? Well, she drinks like one. Let me see: Is it sturgeon?
Baravelli: Hey, you crazy. Sturgeon, he's a doctor cuts you open when-a you sick. Now I give you one more chance.
Professor Wagstaff: I got it. Haddock.
Baravelli: That's-a funny. I gotta haddock, too.
Professor Wagstaff: What do you take for a haddock?
Baravelli: Well-a, sometimes I take-a aspirin, sometimes I take-a Calamel.
Professor Wagstaff: Say, I'd walk a mile for a Calamel.
Baravelli: You mean chocolate calamel. I like that too, but you no guess it. Hey, what's-a matter, you no understand English? You can't come in here unless you say, "Swordfish." Now I'll give you one more guess.
Professor Wagstaff: ...swordfish, swordfish... I think I got it. Is it "swordfish"?
Baravelli: Hah. That's-a it. You guess it.
Professor Wagstaff: Pretty good, eh?

Don't know about all time favorite, but this is one of the funniest ones I've seen.
The quicksand scene from Blazing Saddles. Slim Pickens was hysterical in this movie.
"Dang, thats lucky, doggone almost lost a 400 hunnerd dollar hand cart."
"Well boys, the breaks over, just don't lay there getting a suntan."
They could never make this movie today.

Morgan Freeman taking the steam out of Denzel Washington's angry young man, and putting him in his place in "Glory" is a pretty good scene, as well. Great acting by both men, imo.

Love THE FIELD, with Richard Harris.

THE LEGEND OF 1900, the music shop scene in the begining.

Almost any scene in IKURU.

I absolutely love the Johnny B. Goode scene from "Back to the Future".

I liked to line in True Grit when Glen Campbell makes the comment about mudding JW claim to some reward money for Tom Channey. JW replies "You do that and will kill you"

But one of the funniest to me is an episode of the Sapranos when Christopher and Paulie Walnuts were were lost in a cold snowy woods Christopher said to Paulie "Paulie I am so hungrey we should have stoped at Roy Rogers Chicken." Paulie replies "I should have fu*ked Dale Evans but I didn't."

SO MANY incredible lines in that movie.


BlueSky4ever - 12/16/2011 at 01:44 PM

So many classic ones. a few of my favorites:

The Outlaw Josey Wales. One of Clint's best. Chief Dan great in this one.

Josey Wales: When I get to likin' someone, they ain't around long.
Lone Watie: I notice when you get to DISlikin' someone they ain't around for long neither.

Josey Wales: Are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

Senator: The war's over. Our side won the war. Now we must busy ourselves winning the peace. And Fletcher, there's an old saying: To the victors belong the spoils.
Fletcher: There's another old saying, Senator: Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

A Few Good Men. Jack is perfect in this one. Classic speeches on the witness stand.

Col. Jessep: I run my unit how I run my unit. You want to investigate me, roll the dice and take your chances. I eat breakfast 300 yards from 4000 Cubans who are trained to kill me, so don't think for one second that you can come down here, flash a badge, and make me nervous.

Caddy Shack.....Funny from the start to finish. Used to work on a golf course when this came out. Spot on

Sandy: I want you to kill every gophers on the golf course!
Carl Spackler: Correct me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they're gonna lock me up and throw away the key...
Sandy: Not golfers, you great fool! Gophers! The *little* *brown*, *furry* *rodents* -!
Carl Spackler: We can do that; we don't even have to have a reason. All right, let's do the same thing, but with gophers


BlueSky4ever - 12/16/2011 at 02:21 PM


UNFORGIVEN…….No one makes Westerns like Clint.

Will Munny: Who's the fellow owns this sh*thole?
[pause]
Will Munny: You, fat man. Speak up.
Skinny Dubois: Uh, I... I own this establishment. I bought the place from Greeley for a thousand dollars.
[Will levels the shotgun, and speaks to someone standing behind Skinny]
Will Munny: You better clear outta there.
Man: Yes, sir.
[scampers out of the way]
Little Bill Daggett: Just hold it right there. Hold it...!
[Will shoots Skinny. Screaming, the women scatter upstairs]
Little Bill Daggett: Well, sir, you are a cowardly son of a bitch! You just shot an unarmed man!
Will Munny: Well, he should have armed himself if he's going to decorate his saloon with my friend.


Christmas Vacation……..Love it, entire movie is full of great lines.

Clark: Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?
Eddie: Naw, I'm doing just fine, Clark.


Clark: [a squirrel is loose in the house] Where is Eddie? He usually eats these godda* things.
Cousin Catherine Johnson: Not recently, Clark. He read that squirrels were high in cholesterol.

I've got two favourites...

The waterloo train station segment in the Bourne Ultimatum does it for me. Great sequence... I thought action movies were pretty much cooked, until watching that scene.

The other one is Robert Shaw's Jaws monologue... unbelievably intense :-)

Preety much all of Big Lebowski works for me.

I really like Paul Newman as Frank Galvin giving it to the corrupt judge in The Verdict:
" You couldn't hack it as a lawyer. You were a bag man for the boys downtown and you still are, I know about you."

You just have to see the way Newman plays that whole scene in the judge's chambers. Killer.

Have to add this: the end of Woody Allen's Broadway Danny Rose where Mia Farrow's character comes back while Danny's is throwing a Christmas party for all his "loser" acts. Mostly love the scene because his heart has been broken but he still has faith in his friends and "losers".

les_paul_sunburst - 12/17/2011 at 12:57 AM

Some great scenes so far, a few of which I was going to mention.

A few that haven't been mentioned yet:

Star Trek 2- Spock's big death scene and his last conversation w/ his friend Admiral Kirk "I always have been and always shall be...your friend." Gets me every time I watch it .

Field of Dreams- When Ray is reunited with his father and asks him if he wants to "have a catch." Tear Jerker...

The last 2 minutes of Shawshank Redemption was already mentioned but as it is one of my all time favorite last scenes ...yeah I agree as well!

The original Planet of the Apes - That final scene with Charlton Heston pounding his hands into the surf damning the maniacs who "blew it up" and the slow pan back and to the left to what's left of the Statue of Liberty. One of the best endings in movie history.
