Theater Thursday

This week's Theatre Thursday is dedicated to those Onscreen Moments that stay with you forever.
1) What moment from what movie still makes you laugh out loud - no matter how many times you see it?
The scene at the cottage of Miracle Max in The Princess Bride.  Never fails.
2) What moment from what movie still makes you cry like a baby - no matter how many times you see it?
Ok, this is bad, but you know when the old dog comes over the last hill and his family sees him in Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey?  Yeah...I've been known to get something in my eye right then.
3) What moment from what movie made you actually turn your head from the screen - either in fear, revulsion, or contempt for the fact that you actually paid money to see the film?
Driven.  Pretty much the entire film.  I still cringe when I think about all the good those $7 could have done instead.
BONUS) What is one single moment from a film that is indelibly etched in your brain? Not a scene or a sequence exactly, but three or four seconds from a movie that contain an image or phrase or concept that transcends normal movies?
The image of Paul Newman in Cool Hand Luke when he's digging and re-filling the hole in the prison yard and saying, "Yes, Boss" over and over.  I'm not sure if that's a scene or a moment or not, but I've never watched another 2 minutes of film that made me sympathize so much with the protagonist.  If you don't hate the prison bosses by the end of that sequence, you ain't got no heart in you.
