Scenes From Movies of the Eighties, Movies Beginning with A
What was the most memorable scene from an eighties movie? Was it when the
Blues Brothers make an impossible leap over the drawbridge, or was it when
Bender in the Breakfast Club leads the group through the deserted school
corridors while trying to avoid getting caught? Whatever the reason, whatever
the scene, let me know and I'll share it with everyone else.

About Last Night
Rob Lowe has "picked up" ("picked up", what was that again?) Demi Moore and taken her back to his place. They procede to...well, intimacy ensues. The great part of their romantic evening was the TWO PERSON HEADPHONE! They were sitting in his quiet apartment, both tapped into the same song via the double headset. Wow, was he a tech genius, or what?
About last night
I love the scene where Debbie and Dan begin dating and are in that perfect time where they are falling in love and the song "So Far, So Good" is playing and it shows clips of them so happy.
I love the part where Brad is calling Thor a homo and Sarah is screaming "Take it back Brad.Take back what you said about Thor." " If you don't take it back,I'll tell Chris about all those love poems you write about her." Then Brad goes "Ok I'll take it back,Thor's not a homo." Then Sarah replies "Thanks.Hi Chris."
Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension
Buckaroo and the Hong Kong Cavaliers perform at Artie's Artery. Buckaroo halts the first song and asks "Is someone out there not having a good time?". (Cute moment:Pinky Caruthers raises his hand in response.) Then, he manages to find Penny Priddy and give her a spotlight. She tells her sob story and the other concertgoers laugh at her. Buckaroo quiets them by saying "Don't be mean, we don't need to be mean because remember: No matter where you go, there you are." He then sings a song for her and she attempts suicide.
When Chris finds her boyfriend in the restaurant with another woman and goes nuts.
When Brenda is trying to buy a hotdog and the guy won't accept a check and he says "I'll make it very clear, you slip me the cash and I'll slip you the weiner" and Brenda says, "But I don't have any cash!" and the guy says "Then I don't have a weiner!!" and he tosses the hotdog in the trash.
The end credit sequence. Buckaroo rappels into the L.A. River and starts walking. As he walks, he's joined by the other heroes in the movie. They continue walking until they reach a wall and walk alongside it, past the words "Buckaroo Banzai" written in grafitti.
After Buckaroo surrenders to the Lectroids, the Hong Kong Cavaliers sneak into Yoyodyne Propulsion Systems to rescue him. They take cover in the middle of the Lectroids' bivouac and plan their next move. Suddenly, Perfect Tommy's watch alarm goes off and all hell breaks loose.
The scene where the pilots are in the cockpit and they say "Check the vector, Victor." "Roger, Roger." "We have clearance, Clarence."
When Elaine tells Ted the relationship is over (quite eloquently), and walks away. Ted turns to the camera and deadpans: "What a pisser." When the Doctor is shaking and slapping the hysterical woman, he is interruped. Just before heading off, he gives her one more slap upside the head in pure spite. "Win one for the Zipper."
The scene where Steve Martin walks like himself on his right side and Lily Tomlin on his left (or vise versa, I vaguely remember).
When Steve Martin is sitting on the streetcorner wondering what happened, we hear Lily Tomlin say "Where am I?" and realizing that the transfer worked, Steve Martin jumps up, asking "What the hell is happening to me?" then he looks in a sideview mirror, screams, and has a wrestling match with himself, which lasts about 3 minutes and was the by far most memorable scene from the movie!
Fievel was in a mouse tenement, looking at the stars and thinking about his family.
The scene at the end where Richard Gere's character, Zack Mayo walks into the factory where Paula works. He walks around the corner, cradles her in his arms and walks out of the factory.
Army of Darkness
When Ash is being held captive with Eric the Red and Red keeps telling him that he's a leader of a great army. Ash replies to Eric "Look pal, you ain't leading by two things right now. Jack and s***, and Jack left town." Totally classic. Then when the 'she devil' tells Ash that he used to find her attractive and Ash responds, "You got real ugly!"
