Scenes From Movies of the Eighties, Movies Beginning with D
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.

When Gary Busey is laying down in the toilet floor and Albert asks if he's ok. Gary Busey replies "Never better. Just doing some intestinal yoga."
The climatic end sequence, when Jen the gelfling, restores the the shard and brings unity between two races (the skeksis and the urRu) also the music by trevor jones for this scene is fantastic
Dead Poet's Society
The final scene where Ethan Hawke stands on his desk and says "oh, captain, my captain." And the rest of the class joins in.
At the very end of the movie, Mr. Keating comes in to get the last of his posessions, but as he's leaving Todd Anderson gets up on his desk and says "Captian, my captain." The rest of the Dead Poets Society, and everyone who supported Keating (including Hopkins) gets up on their desk. It then shows all of them standing defiantly, and it's a very powerful image of anticonfromity and honour.
The scene where John McClane (Bruce Willis) is talking into the walkie-talkie and says "Yippie-ca-yay, mother f**kers!"
John McClane (Bruce Willis) straps the explosives to the computer and chair and throws it down the elevator shaft. The best part is when the explosion flies up the shaft and McClane yells "Oh, shit!" The look on his face is hilarious.
The scene when Hans Gruber (played excellently by Alan Rickman) blows up the roof of the Nakatomi building and McClane (also played excellently by Bruce Willis) successfully jumps from the roof with a fire hose tied around his waist as the building explodes.
When Bruce Willis kills the first bad guy:
[Gruber looking at dead body in a chair in the elevator]
Gruber: (reading) "Now I have a machine gun, Ho, Ho, Ho."
I like when Baby goes to Johnnys room and they dance to "Cry to Me" by Otis Redding, then she rubs her hand across his butt! Thats the sexiest scene EVER!
When Johnny comes back for baby at the end, walks up to her table where she is sitting in the corner and say the cheesiest(but sexiest)line in the movie....."Nobody puts baby in the corner". It's a great movie!
The sceen at the end where Baby is sitting the table with her parents and Patrick Swayze walks up to the table to get her to dance the final dance sequence and says "No one puts Baby in the corner."The scene whenever Baby comes to Johnny's room for the first time, after Jake Houseman saves Penny from the botched abortion...he says "you aren't scared of anything!" and then she says, oh so dramatic "I'm scared of what i saw, of what i did, of who i am, and most of all i'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life, the way i feel when i'm with you" i mean, my gawd..it's the turning point of the greatest movie to come out of the eighties.That charming scene where Baby and Johnny are practicing dancing and she is tormenting him by throwing his words about dance space back at him, and then they lipsynch the song "Love is Strange" while crawling around in the floor.The scene where Baby comes upon the "hidden" bunkers where the workers are "dirty" dancing and she talks to Johny for the first time and is so nervous she says, "I carried a watermelon." This feeling pretty much sums up the awkwardness of how she felt and how every teenager feels around his/her crush.
When Baby goes to Penny's room to asks if she knows where Johnny is, then Penny opens the door and Johnny is sitting there and looks up with such a sad puppy dog look on his face. Awwwwwww!
My favorite scene in this whole intire movie is when Baby and Johnny are dancing in that big white room (right before that annoying short dude barges in) and 'Love is Strange' comes on and they mouth it...i love it!
Sgt. Friday (Dan Aykroyd) interviews Sylvia Wiss, then she pops open her blouse and asks "Do these look like the boobs of a 40-year old woman?" Friday answers in his monotoned voice: "Excellent, bordering on spectacular."
At the end of the movie when Friday is telling Streebeck that he had the pleasure of spending the night with Connie Swail...Pep says "don't you mean the virgin Connie Swail?...Friday looks at Pep with a raised eyebrow which makes Pep do a double take...Friday got laid!...That part made the movie.
The football fight and the scene where Dinger is sitting in Joel's car talking about how he was wants to be in Hawaii and says "Hello honey."
The scene where Bobby and Lainie have a hard time falling asleep, and are pacing their rooms and trying to busy themselves so they get tired.
Bobby Keller (Corey Feldman) and Lainie Diamond (Meredith Salenger) crash into each other on Coleman and Geena's property, and they become trapped in Bobby and Lainie's bodies.
The scene where Bobby and Dinger are talking in Bobby's bedroom, (intercut with the opening credits), discussing Lainie, Indian mating rituals, peverse matters, no money, failing grades, and parents. (Bobby's parents don't talk to him, Dinger's mom ran him over with he Volvo, breaking his leg).
The dream sequences, filmed in an eerie blue tint. Bobby comes to tell Coleman in his dreams what he needs to do. Bobby's advice: "Don't eat the tofu s**t, cuz it makes me nauseous."
Dinger and Bobby are acting like dogs
