I love the very, very last scene from "Places In The Heart" such an odd, moving touch.

ANY scene from "La Dolce Vita"...I particularly love the scene with Anita Ekberg and the kitten.

The spring in "The Virgin Spring"

The scene in "Hope and Glory" where the kids are thrilled that the Nazis dropped a bomb on their school.."Thank you, Adolf!!!"

Kevin Kline trying to read a teleprompter without glasses in "Soap Dish".

Divine pitching a violent fit when her parents don't get her cha-cha boots for Christmas in "Female Trouble".

Jeff Daniels coming out of the movie screen in "Purple Rose of Cairo"

The jitterbug sequence in "1941"

Literally millions of others.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

The scene in "Fame" in which Ralph Garcie is describing how Freddy Prinze's death affected him.
"The stage is where I live and come alive and act out all the things that go on in my life. It's not just what I do for a living, it's my shrink and my love affair. No one in my life has ever or ever will kiss me on the mouth like this lover called my relationship with my performance."

Here's a few offhand:

The opening scene in Jaws when she's attacked by the shark, and all you see is the top of her body being jerked around-there's a great example of "less is more".

Fatal Attraction-when you first see Glenn Close in the mirror when the wife wipes off the steam, at the end.

Sweet Transvestite in Rocky Horror.

The "I'm Spartacus" scene in Spartacus.

When von Aschenbach first sees Tadzio in Death In Venice.

Fellini's skating nuns, going around in a square in the church, was it Amarcord, or Roma?

The scene about Heaven and Hell between Belize and Roy Cohn in the corridor of the hospital in Angels In America.

and lest we not forget: "The men Miss Trixie dates are like that white speck on top of old Chicken Shit." from Imogene in Paper Moon.
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!
