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

The opening sequence which shows the final minute or so where Michael Myers is choking Jamie Lee Curtis, and Donald Pleasence runs in and shoots him six times. Michael falls of the balcony then when Pleasence goes outside to examine the body, the body is gone. He reaches down and touches the grass where the body was, only he gets blood all over his hand. The man next door comes outside in his bathrobe and says: "What the hell's going on out here?" Pleasence: "Call the police, and tell the Sheriff I shot him! Tell him that he's still on the loose!" "Is this some kind of joke? I've been trick-or-treated to death tonight." Pleasence: "You don't know what death is!" Immeadiatly afterwards the Halloween music starts up and we see Pleasence begin to frantically search the area. He goes behind a house to investigate the alley and then the screen goes black (then the opening credits begin). It really gets the nervousness and suspense going.
Rick Springfield stars as a rocker who falls in love with an uptight child psychologist who is unimpressed by his wealth and fame after meeting during a fenderbender. Cute love story, especially for Rick Springfield fans who get a pretty good look at him.
The scene at the end when Veronica (Winona Ryder) rips the red bow from Heather Duke's (Shannon Doherty) hair, saying "There's a new Sheriff in town."
Winona Ryder and Christian Slater's character had just finished having sex on the lawn, and Christian turns to Winona and says "Wow...that was my first game of naked polo."
For one thing, anything to do with the lunchroom poll is a classic.
The line said by Kurt's dad (or it could be Ram's) at the funeral - "I love my dead, gay son!"
The way Veronica and her parents have the exact same conversation over and over: "Gotta motor if I'm gonna make that party," "Gotta motor if I'm gonna make that funeral."
When Winona Ryder is in the car singing "Mary had a Little Lamb"
When Veronica is complaining to her parents about how adults don't treat teenagers like adults... Veronica: "All we want is to be treated like human Beings! Not to be experimented on like guinea pigs or patronized like bunny rabbits!" Veronica's Dad: "I don't patronize bunny rabbits!"They're in the cow pasture. Heather Duke and Ram are going at it in the grass. Kurt staggers towards Veronica and says "When I got that feeling...I need sexual healing", then passes out face first on the ground.
When Den, the earth boy turned hero, is captured and then seduced by the evil queen and he says " Geesh, 17 years of nothing then bam twice in one day!" Loved John Candy's voice in this one.
The scene mocking Hitchcock's "The Birds", when the character played by Mel Brooks is sitting in the park and then flees trying to dodge the creatures and their "turd torpedoes".
In this classic werewolf movie the most memorable scene is when our female protagonist is trapped in a doctor's office by a lycanthrope in human form named Eddie. In perhaps one of the most clever uses of clique quotes, Eddie tells her "I want to give you a piece of my mind," and promptly digs into his head to pull out a piece of his brain matter. Eddie then promptly turns into a werewolf......... JOY!
