All-Time Favorite Scene From A Movie

Matthew Broderick lip-synching "Twist and Shout" on top of the float in 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off', leading to most of Chicago dancing in the streets.

I could watch that every day.

"You want the truth ? You can't handle the truth!" from A few good men.

"Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!" from the last Godfather.

I know this one is more recent but I do think that last scene from Casino Royale is a classic too.
"The name's Bond...James Bond."

A few of my personal favorites:

Tuco and Blondie leave Pablo's ministary - The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

"Tell Her I'm Old Fashioned." - The Age of Innocence

Medievil Times - The Cable Guy

"Why Ringo, you look like somebody just walked over your grave" - Tombstone

The final shot from Magnolia

"Yesterday" - Once Upon A Time In America

"It's a shame she won't live, but then again who does?" - Blade Runner

"Why didn't you stay?" - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

The final duel - The Wrath of Khan

Bill Cutting's late night chat - Gangs of New York

And more recently in theaters:

Bath House - Eastern Promises

"If you got somethin to confess, you best spit it out now." - The Assassination of Jesse James

The final two shots - Lust, Caution.

Johnny Depp doing his routine in the park in Benny & Joon (and when he swings outside of Mary Stuart Masterson's hospital room).

Heath Ledger singing to Julia Stiles in 10 Things I Hate About You.

Richie's attempted suicide in The Royal Tenenbaums, my favorite film of all time, perfectly accentuated by Elliot Smith's Needle in the Hay:

The gorgeous scene in the Life Aquatic when they finally find the Jaguar Shark. I love Bill Murray in this scene. This was also my introduction to the music of Sigur Ros, which has become an obsession. The song is perfect for this scene. The dialog is understated and poignant. "I wonder if it remembers me" is one of my favorite lines:

Max's famous dinner scene in Rushmore, but there are so many from this movie:

Lance already mentioned "Why didn't you stay?" in Eternal Sunshine, but that's definitely up there for me. The score for the entire movie is highly underrated. This movie means so much to me, and this is the only scene from any movie that's ever made me cry:

(Also, I love David Cross)

The last scene of Lost in Translation:

As cliche as this choice may be, the Tiny Dancer singalong in Almost Famous:

This youtube video is in terrible quality, but this famous scene from Boogie Nights is an example of what an amazing director PT Anderson is:

I'm unafraid to admit Love Actually is one of my favorite movies. It's one of those "have to watch it at Christmas" movies for me. My love for Keira Knightley might foster a sort of bias, but this scene gets me every time. Cheesy as it may be, my old girlfriend and I signed all of our cards and what not to each other with "To me, you are perfect," so this means a lot to me:

V For Vendetta is such an excellent film, and V's soliloquy here is really something special:

Sorry guys, but I still love Garden State. Great Simon & Garfunkel song here too. Good luck exploring the infinite abyss:

I'd try to post a video from Children of Men, but its moments are too numerous to mention. The long shots (the scene in the car and the firefight in the refugee camp) are two of the great scenes in recent cinema, but the scene with Theo and Kee carrying the baby down the stairs as the building is close to crumbling and the refugees and soldiers all stop and stare is amazingly powerful. It's a crime that Children of Men was not nominated for more awards as it was plainly my favorite film of 2006.

I love you, Christopher Guest. If you haven't seen Waiting for Guffman, you're missing one of my favorite comedies ever:

Well, this has proved a nice diversion from my constitutional law paper that I've barely started and is due tomorrow. I hope you enjoy my clips so at least I did something productive while I prepared myself to fail the class.

And yeah, that scene is unbelievable.

Updated with new scenes and videos:

Since IMP already posted the Eternal Sunshine clip, I'll just post a different one. This is that glorious ending I was talking about in another thread.

Magnolia's final scene. Gorgious. From 6:15 in this video.

Bill The Butcher speaking to Amsterdam.

Just friggen hilarious.


Tuco and Blondie - my favorite part of possibly my favorite movie.

The best line in Blade Runner

Not the scene I mentioned before, but they're all so fantastic it really doesn't matter which one I pick.

Fantastic scene from The Insider.

Needs little explanation.

I don't know if it's my favorite ever, but it's up there...the scene at the end of American History X where Derek gets out of the shower and it looking at himself in the mirror and running his hand over his swastika tattoo....the symbolism is brilliant.
