    What's your favorite line/scenes in a movie?

    I was cruising around and saw a site for The Gladiator.
    I loved the scene and the lines where Joaquin Phoenix is threatening his sister. Goes like this:
    COMMODUS
    But the Emperor Claudius knew that
    they were up to something dire. He
    knew they were busy little bees.
    And one night he sat down with one
    of them and he looked at her and he
    said: "Tell me what you have been
    doing, busy little bee, or I shall
    strike down those dearest to you.
    You shall watch as I bathe in their
    blood." And the bee knew he spoke
    the truth, for the Emperor always
    speaks the truth. And what do you
    think happened then, Lucius?

    LUCIUS
    (still pouring over
    the scrolls)
    I don't know, Uncle.

    COMMODUS
    (glaring at Lucilla)
    The bee told him everything.
    -------------
    That's one of my all time favorites. JP should have won the Oscar!

    What's yours?
    So, where's the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?

    The speech by Pullman as President in Independence Day.

    The driving on the moped scene in Dumb and Dumber.

    The "you had me at hello scene" in Jerry Maguire.

    I'll shut up now.

    I like the original Godfather scene towards the end. Michael (our pal Al) is in the church (holy) while his nephew is getting baptized. There are cuts to his "family" killing off his enemies(um-not so holy). The scenes cut back and forth while the music and killing both build in intensity.

    Clearly the best movie scene ever is:

    "What an incredible Cinderella story, this unknown comes outta no where to lead the pack, at Augusta. He's on his final hole, he's about 455 yards away - he's gonna hit about a two-iron I think. Oh he got all of that one! The crowd is standing on its feet here, the normally reserved Augusta crowd - going wild - for this young Cinderella, he's come outta no where, he's got about 350 yards left, he's gonna hit about a five-iron, don't you think? He's got a beautiful backswing - that's - Oh he got all of that one! He's gotta be pleased with that, the crowd is just on its feet here, uh - He's the Cinderella boy, uh - tears in his eyes I guess as he lines up this last shot, he's got about 195 yards left, he's got about a - its looks like he's got about an eight-iron. This crowd has gone deathly silent, the Cinderella story, outta no where, a former greenskeeper now - about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac - It's in the Hole!"

    He adlibed that entire scene by the way.
