    I wonder why nobody else has responded to the question.

    1) Action scene, probably the climax of Jaws where Roy Scheider blows up the shark. Gets me every time.
    2) Love scene, I’d say the end of The Apartment, where Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine play cards.
    3) Funniest scene…. that’s a tough one…. probably the scene in A Fish Called Wanda where John Cleese’s wife (almost) catches him with Jamie Lee Curtis, and Kevin Cline bumbles in. Hilarious.
    4) Best musical scene, the duo between John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in Grease, “Summer Lovin.”
    5) Best dramatic scene…. now that’s REALLY tough…. lots of contenders, lots and lots, but probably I’d choose Kevin Costner’s amazing (and fictional) summation to the courtroom in JFK, where he ends by looking directly into the camera. Hard to think of a more powerful moment in movie history than that one.

    C’mon, people! Let’s have more responses!
