    Was watching Silence Of The Lambs. Lecters first appearance was the greatest exchange I've ever scene. I also rank The Dark Knights scene with Ledger and Bale in jail at the top.
    What other such interactions come to mind? Just curious.

    "I already know how to drink." From my all-time favorite movie, The Sting. Never was an on-screen exchange between Redford and Newman that wasn't memorable.

    Christopher Walker as Capt.Koons telling young Butch the story about his fathers gold watch in Pulp Fiction is epic....in my opinion.

    And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl proved the strongest man at last

    The entire Sunshine Limited movie, with Sam Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones. Intense, thought provoking, beautiful conversation.

    Uncle Pio (Steven Geray) tormenting Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford) in Gilda.

    Tom Waits being woken by Liev Schrieber and co. in Wristcutters. "Does my ear look crooked to you?"

    Robert Duvall and Tess Harper in Tender Mercies. If you watch the director has placed design patterns between the two that change with the mood between the two, when the two are in the same shot.

    I love Sean Connery for the single fact that no matter the character he keeps his accent! And I couldn't agree more Pagan, that is a great scene.

    First one that came to my mind.

    Have you ever seen Manhunter? Red Dragon was a remake of that movie, it's got a cheesy 80's feel, but you can see where Hannibal Lecter's mannerisms and speech were taken from, it's quite neat, I almost like that actor better as you can see where Anthony Hopkins got it all from.

    A few of my favorites: The bar scene near the end of The Outlaw Josey Wales, where the bounty hunter comes back into the bar to face Josey. Also, the montage at the end of Jeremiah Johnson where he is fighting the Crow, one after another, the weariness on Redfords face when he hands Bear Claw the rabbit leg on that mountainside.....damn.

    True Romance (Walken and Hopper) is easily the first to come to mind.

    Burton and Taylor

    Tracy and Hepburn

    Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr

    Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr

    Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson in the Bucket list

    I know it's cheesy, but I love Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore films.

    The opening scenes of The Blues Brothers, when Elwood picks Jake up from prison and they are driving around.
    Plus just about every single scene in that film.
    Fantastic film.

    I also love the interactions of Val Kilmer's "Doc Holiday" with Michael Biehn's "Johnny Ringo" in Tombstone. While I know that the "I'm your huckleberry" is probably the most quoted line, my favorite scene of the movie is when Doc and Ringo meet for the first time. The entire conversation in Latin (which you can find on YouTube translated) followed by the gun-handling display and mocking that. Amazing film.

    Let's add a couple:
    Marissa Tomei and Lane Smith - My Cousin Vinny and the vois dire over the Chevy ignition timing.
    James Lafferty and Danny Glover - Waffle Street where Glover is challenging Lafferty on "why" he wants to franchise a Waffle King.

    I'm sure I can add more...later.

    Tombstone was legendary.

    There are too many to name from the Godfather, but "Leave the gun... take the Cannoli" stands out as one for me.

    Bing & Kaye in White Christmas and Bing & Astaire in Holiday Inn... and who could forget Bing & Hope in almost every "Road to" movie.

    "Big Jake" Wayne and Richard Boone. Boone kidnaped Wayne's grandson(?)and when Boone comes into camp to get the ransom Wayne sticks a gun in his ribs(where his watching henchmen can't see) and whispers the same threat in his ear he made to Wayne about Wayne's kid,

    Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino, just about any scene where Clint speaks, I was in awe and hanging on every syllable. I have seen that movie a dozen times and still can't get enough.
    Some of the looks he gives people in that movie are pure Clint, no one else could pull that off.

    Walt Kowalski: Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn't have f...ed with? That's me.
    Walt Kowalski: I once fixed a door that wasn't even broken yet.
    Walt Kowalski: I'll blow a hole in your face then go inside and sleep like a baby.
    Walt Kowalski: I used to stack f...s likes you five feet high in Korea... use ya for sand bags.

    Sue Lor: There's a ton of food.
    Walt Kowalski: Yeah, well just keep your hands off my dog.
    Sue Lor: No worries, we only eat cats.

    I also rank The Dark Knights scene with Ledger and Bale in jail at the top.

    I've heard that Ledger told Bale not to pull his punches in that scene ... he wanted to be HIT. Neither of them told the director or the crew, Bale just beat the crap out of Ledger on camera. Great scene. Awesome performance by Ledger.

    Looks like everyone's already named off most of the all-time greats.

    I would add to the list Samuel Jackson and John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. Great Film.

    Also, Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in Shawshank Redemption.

    I would say all of Casablanca for the memorable quotes. I love Bogart and Bergman.

    Here's looking at you, kid.
    Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
    Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By.'
    Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.
    Round up the usual suspects.
    We'll always have Paris.

    For something a little closer to today I will have to go with;

    Haley and Bruce in The Sixth Sense - I see dead people.
    Schwarzenegger with everyone in the Terminator - I'll be back.
    or
    Tom and Anthony in Top Gun - I feel the need - the need for speed!

    RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

    Sallah: Indy, why does the floor move?
    Indiana: Give me your torch.
    [Indy takes the torch and drops it in]
    Indiana: Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?
    Sallah: Asps... very dangerous. You go first.

    Robert Duvall in Second Hand Lions; the fight scene with 4 young toughs whom he then "mentors" after the fact...and they accept it.

    Ok...it's an Audi Commercial, but Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto...Audi Commercial - Spock vs. Spock

    Let's take it old school, guys.

    How about Humphrey Bogart and John Ridgely in "The Big Sleep"?

    Eddie Mars: Convenient, the door being open when you didn't have a key, eh?

    Philip Marlowe: Yeah, wasn't it. By the way, how'd you happen to have one?

    Eddie Mars: Is that any of your business?

    Philip Marlowe: I could make it my business.

    Eddie Mars: I could make your business mine.

    Philip Marlowe: Oh, you wouldn't like it. The pay's too small.

    Classic, hard boiled, tough guy talk from one of the best private eye movies ever made.

    The old man says to the punks, "Get off my lawn!!"

    You know the movie, you know the actor.

    It's good to see so many other posts for Robert Duvall. He's not the chiseled feature hero that Clint, Wayne, or Harrison Ford is. He can play a hero, or a bad guy, or a romantic lead, but when he does, it's not idealized like one of the Hollywood chiseled guys are. It's like one of us is the hero, or bad guy, or romantic lead. He is more like the people I see around me.

    Robert Duvall has been in great movies and stinkers. I've seen most all of his work, he never has shown me anything but the best he can do. And, the best he can do is better than any living actor. My opinion only, so it is unassailable and shouldn't start a debate.

    FILL YOUR HAND, YOU SONOFABITCH!

    One of my favorite moments in any movie - ever.

    Most any scene in Inglourious Basterds where Christoph Waltz' character Hans Landa is questioning someone. The tension created is awesome and fun to watch.

    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    I hate to admit it, but it was that damned shark in Jaws. I've been around coastlines for years. I'd been to sea and watched 11 foot hammerheads coast under the ship. A kid on Midway Island disappeared off a Sunfish and was never found, though a suspect 14-foot tiger shark was harpooned. I was not a skittish soul. But the timing and drama, the withholding of the shark in many scenes, and the dragging under of its various victims, were done with perfect dramatic timing and tension. I started out knowing I was looking at a plastic dummy shark. Nonetheless, like watching a stage play or puppet show, once you suspend disbelief, the experience is realized. I was riveted, and much surprised that I was. Da-da, Da-da....
