Scenes From Movies of the Eighties, Movies Beginning with S

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 best was when Llyod was talking to Diane's dad at the very end and he told him "I'm the distraction thats going with her to England". Just because it was such a typical line that Lloyd would say but it meant alot...
When John Cusack is having dinner at Diane's and her father asks what he wants to do with his life and he goes on and on about never wanting to buy, sell, or process anything!
In the back of the car, after the love-makin', when "In your eyes" is playing, Diane says to Lloyd Dobbler (greatest movie name of all time) "Listen to this song. It's a really good song." It is a really good song, and so perfect for that moment in the movie.
I must say this is my favorite movie and John Cusack is so great as Lloyd. My favorite scene is probably the very last one when Lloyd and Diane are leaving for England and she is so nervous to be flying but Lloyd comforts her...very funny and sweet. And of course the most memorable scene from the movie is Lloyd playing "in your eyes" outside of Diane's cool
When Lloyd (John Cusack) gets out his boombox and puts in the air outside his girlfriend's house.
The scene where Lloyd comes to pick up Diane for their first date is great. He's talking to Diane's father a mile a minute about kickboxing: "Ever heard of kickboxing, the sport of the future? I can tell by your face no..." And on and on.
The part when John Cusack's character is talking to his friend on a pay telephone in the pouring rain after Diane broke up with him. He says "I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen." The way he says it just breaks my heart.Diane and John Cusack are sitting cuddling in his car after they first make love. He starts to shiver. Diane says, "You're shivering. Are you cold?" He shakes his head and she covers him with the blanket she has wrapped around her. You just know he's shivering because he's a little scared of his feelings for her.
At the end of the party, Jeremy Piven plays the guy that wants his keys. Lloyd says "You must chill. You must chill."
At the first dinner Diane and Floyd eat together at Diane's house the other guests ask what Floyd wants to do for a career, and Floyd lists everything he doesn't want to do, and then he says, "I can't figure it all out tonight, so for now I am just goimg to hang with your daughter."
Tony Montana (Al Pacino) is sitting in an interrogation room at the Department of Immigration. He launches into this long solioquy about Cuba. My favorite part is about the octopus. "You ever eaten octopus? I've got f*****' octopus comin' out of my f*****' ears, man."
In the end when Tony is fighting the guys and he's taking all those bullet and he says "SAY HELLO TO MY LIL FREIND!!!!!!!"
I loved the whole movie. But one of my favorite scenes is when Tony is held at gun point by the Columbian, who wants him to tell him all the infomation. I love the part when Tony tells the guy: Why don't you try sticking your head in a toilet, see if it fits."
Second Chance
The end part where there competing in a rodeo and a horse named Steel comes up lame.
I love the part of the movie when everybody is in the stationwagon and Bobby starts to have a preminition. Then him and Wills trade seats in the car and Bobby is creating havoc on the highway! At the end of the scene they crash right into the bad guy's hideout. It is a classic scene.
As Mr. Ages first brings Mrs. Brisby in to the rooms under the rose bush, a dark figure slinks out from the rows of armour and it's Justin. He's the super-handsome captain of the guard and Mrs. Brisby is quite flustered when he tells her about the beautiful lights adorning the hallway. If I were her, I would be up in his lap in a second.
The scene where Harley asks the maid if she's fuzzy.. and she replies with, "You shut yo filthy mouth!"
The best scene in Shag that always gets a laugh from me is the morning after the party when it is Buzz and Carson on the boat and they are talking about college when Buzz says a line that pisses Carson off and she pushes him off the bed. Also at the end when Chip and Pudge shag they are so cute!
Scene when Wendy catches Jack on the typewriter. She freaks out about what had been on the pages on the paper (clarifying that he has officialy lost his mind). She runs away and Jack starts chasing her with the baseball bat. As they reached the stairs, she has her back turned to her running up them scared out of her mind. Then, he calmly tells her not to worry because he won't hurt her. He'll simply bash her f***ing brains out.
The scene with the door being axed in by Jack Nicholson, that was just so good, Shelley Duvall adds the horror to it with her loud and clear screams!!!!
The robot comes up with his name. The inspiration? The DeBarge song "Who's Johnny?" and Five Alive citrus juice.
The scene where Ally Sheedy dances with Johnny 5 to DeBarge's dancable song "Who's Johnny?"
The scene where Jake's drunk girlfriend gets her hair caught in the door and her friends have to cut her hair out because they're too drunk to realize they could have just opened the door.
When Jake, the jock, tells Anthony Michael Hall that he can drive the popular drunk girl home. Anthony Michael Hall says that he can't drive and doesn't have his license, so Jake tells him to not hit anything. Then Anthony Michael Halls goes "Ahhhhh, don't hit anything." It makes me laugh every single time!
At the end of the movie when Samantha and Jake are sitting on the top of the table with her birthday cake. Jake tells her to make a wish and she says "It already came true."
I love the scene at the end when Sam goes back into the church to get her sisters veil and when she comes back outside, she sees everyone driving away. When she looks back up, she sees Jake leaning against his car, and she says "Me?" and he says "Yeah you!" I get chills everytime!
Jake finds the dork (Anthony Michael Hall) and the dork starts fxing martitinis and explains the way women work. "Games," AMH says, "Silly tortorous games...Do you know how many times I've lost my lunch money to some bitch because I was too torqued up to say no."
When the geek finds Sam in the auto shop and he knocks over the shelves with the hubcaps very funny!
The scene where Long Duck is in the tree at Jake's party, wearing a kimono, and says "Oh sexy girlfriend..." to Jake.
The whole coat scene, where Sam wants to say some thing to Jake but turns around then he turns around slightly curious and then turns back, I recall one more turning around for Sam before he sees her. Its so funny and so cute at the same time. He looks at her bitting his bottom lip ( all sexy like) and she runs away!
The part where Jake comes to the house and Long Duck Dong is like, "She's getting married." "Married?" "Married." Shuts the door. "Married?" "Married, sheesh!"
When the Geek is making Martini's for him and Jake after the party at Jakes house And the geek is explianing about women to Jake.....Pure Brilliance
A very funny scene in Sixteen Candles was when Samantha (Molly Ringwald) first encounters the 2nd pair of grandparents (after seeing the first ones in her room) downstairs, and her grandma spreads her arms and gasps "Fred look, she's gotten her boobies", he replies "ooh! Let me go get my magnifying glass" and in turn the grandma says "ooh and they're sooo perky!" while she goes to grab her breast (with that psycho music playing in the background)The exchange student Sam's grandparents bring is at the school dance dancing with the really tall girl and she asks his name. He responds with "Dong" and she says "No, what's your first name". He says "Long" and then she looks down at him and in a very concerned voice asks. "What's your middle name?" and he says, very shortly, "Duck"! When Jake and Samantha go back to his house at the end of the movie and Jake says," happy birthday Samantha, make a wish." She looks at him and says," it already came true." and they lean over and start kissing.When Dong is on the grass and everyone is standing around him. Grandpa starts saying "Dong" and snapping his fingers. Then Grandpa says "Where is my AW-TOE-MO-BEEL(automobile)?" To which Dong replies "AW-TOE-MO-BEEL??!!" And then he starts laughing so loud!
The part where Jake comes to the sister's wedding and Samantha sees him and she asks him "What are you doing here?" and Jake says "I heard you were here." and then Samantha says "You came here for me?" and Jakes says "Is that okay?" and Samantha says "Yeah its okay"
The scene where Watts is walking down the street wiping her tears away, and Steven is calling her. She stops....(no words...just lost breath). He says, "Why didn't you tell me?" She cries: "I thought you knew." His reply: "I didn't know." "Well, then you're stupid!" she cries, laughing. "I always knew you were stupid." He hands her the diamond earrings. "I think these were for you." She takes them and begins to put them in her ears. "I wanted these, I really wanted these." she says. "Well, they're yours." was his response. "How do they look?" she asks, and he answers "You look good wearing my future." Then they walk down the street arm and arm as the camera fades away...
The scene when Keith and Watts practice kissing. After Keith says, "your blushing" and then says, "your pretty." Watts says, "Yeah, day I blush" then runs off. Keith says, "see you tonight."
When They practice kissWhen Watts meets Keith in the club and says, "All I care about in this goddamned life are me, my drums, and you." That scene is just great.
Can't believe there aren't more for Spaceballs. How about all those Dark Helmet moments? HELMET: What's all this bubbling and churning? SANDERS: We call it [smack] Mr. Coffee. "That was then. This is now." "When does then become now?" "Soon!" HELMET: [heavy breathing, snorting] I can't breathe in this thing! SANDERS: He's an A**hole, sir. HELMET: I know that! What's his name? SANDERS: That is his name. HELMET: I see your Schwartz is as big as mine. BARF: I'm a Mog. Half man, half dog. I'm my own best friend. LONESTAR: What the h*** was that? BARF: Spaceball One. They've gone to plaid!
The scene where Dark Helmet kills a guy from the crew - the movie production crew, that is!

The scene where the self-destruct countdown reaches 0 and the computer says: "Have a nice day." and all three morons whine: "Thank you..."

Towards the end of the movie, a statue, similar to the Statue of Liberty, crashes on a beach and characters from Planet of the Apes are riding by on horses. One of the apes asks what or who is it in the statue and he tells him "Spaceballs." The other ape says: "Spaceballs!! Oh, shit, there goes the planet!" in an English accent.
When DH was playing with his dolls and Col. Sandurz walks in on him and said "No sir i didn't see you playing with your dolls again!"The funniest part is when Dark Helmet Pres. Scroob and Col. Sanders slide down the stair railings to press the button to stop the self-destruct and Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) and the button says out of order and he screams: "FUCK! Nothing works in the future!"
I'm still trying to figure out how they did this one. In an early scene,Lee Van Cleef is teaching his grandson how to skip stones. Just when the kidis about to give up, the Lamborghini comes racing along and skips across thepond like a stone.
Two scenes always crack me up. The first is when Chevy Chase walks in with a "broken" arm to take the GLG-20 exam, and goes through a huge production to cheat on the test. The second is when the russian agents ask him what his objective is, and he replies that he objects to buying a woman dinner and then not have her put out for him!
Spinal Tap
And perhaps the best of all, there's the scene where Nigel Tufnel demonstrates the band's amplifiers, all of which are fitted with dials that go up to eleven instead of the usual ten: DIBERGI: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder? TUFNEL: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where? DIBERGI: I don't know. TUFNEL: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do? DIBERGI: Put it up to eleven. TUFNEL: Eleven. Exactly. One louder. DIBERGI: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder? TUFNEL: (Extremely long pause) These go to eleven.
St Elmo's Fire
When Emilio Estevez shows up at the woman he loves cabin in the mountains, confesses his love, and finds out she's there with the man she loves. So heartbreaking!
The Billy Brawl. It was such a passionate scene. When Billy Hixx (Rob Lowe) spots his wife in the bar with another man and says, "Get your hands off my wife. I said get your hands off my wife!" Then they fight, say harmful words towards eachother... and kiss & make up in the end!
Billy (Rob Lowe) is talking with Wendy (Mare Winningham) at her new apartment, and he asks her if she were still a virgin. She asks him why her sexual status is so important to him. He takes her hand and asks if he has been such an ass (basically) or if he could ask something of her. Then they make sweet!

Their all like that, if you wanna get laid you gotta get yaself a protestant....jews good'
The scene where Vern, Gordy, Chris and Teddy take a short cut through the forest and fall in the little pond. They're horsing around until they realize there's leeches in the water and scramble out, screaming and ripping off their clothes in a panic. Gordy looks down his pants, pulls out a leech and FAINTS...haha
The death-run over the train tracks with the train right behind them! Pure class acting.
In the end of the movie, when Gordie informs the audience of what happens to the other boys in the future. He mentions how he and Chris graduated from highschool and went to college and were successful.Then in what is one of the most powerful moments in any movie I have every seen, he explains how Chris was stabbed to death in a fast food resturaunt, and the image of Chris who is walking away, slowly vanishes from the picture. Perhaps the fact that River Pheonix, who played Chirs, actually died of a drug overdose, makes this scene even more moving.
When Gordy, Chris, Vern and Teddy are camping out the first night and it is a sequence of answers to questions (you don't hear) nand Vern responds to one, "What would I eat for the rest of my life...easy...cherry flavored pez. No question about it,"When the 4 boys stand at the bridge and Teddy says "alright, but while you guys are dragging your candy asses half way across the state and back, I'll be waiting on the other side, relaxing with my thoughts" and Gordy says "do you use your right hand or your left hand for that?" its hillarious!
At the beginning of the film when the boys are playing cards in the treehouse....Chris is pissed off that Teddy has won and so he calls him "a four-eyed pile of shit". Teddy takes the cigarette out of his mouth and says "a pile of shit has a thousand eyes"!!! This bit makes me laugh out loud everytime!!
