The awkward moment at the bar around the pool with Phil Hoffman in Boogie Nights. That is priceless stuff.

More of a shot I guess but a lot of the actual content is read off Tom Cruises face.

The long tracking shot down the hotel hallway with Frank after the interview. Really quiet and tranquil with Jon Brions 'G Bb G, G Bb G' playing lightly.

The Matress Man commercial on the Punch-Drunk Love DVD where Philip Seymour Hoffman jumps off the truck, bounces off a mattress, and falls to the pavement.
Draco Malfoy is so emo.

How about Magnolia when the WWDK goes on the air and you have this sequence where the camera pushes through to each character, like a chain, resembling their connection?

I liked how it went from Phil to Earl to Frank and so on.

When the camera looks up at Donnie, you hear Jimmy say: "And let me say: With these three kids right here, their going to be here for awhile, but today is
a dangerous day --
"

I love that.

Even though PTA and the actors think the scene feels like it's from a different movie,  my vote still have to go with the Donut shop and "the Christmas."  In retrospect, my subconscious said "so THIS is why everyone loves this movie!" during and after that scene. It has comedy, action, sadness (I think when the clerk gets shot it's pretty fuckin' sad) and a sense of hope all in one. Not to mention Christmas and all that 70's plastic.

My Vote: Donut Shop, Boogie Nights.


Others-
Sydney- Jimmy and Sydney in the car. "it fucks up the retail value!" and the way PBH goes "Mm-hm" without changing his facial expression.

Magnolia- Nothing stands out, but I really like Guzman with "That's not a rule? Oh that's a fuckin RULE!"

i think we can officially acknowledge this as the best scene. thinking about it now, i remember it's THE scene i always thought about during my boogie phase. even to the point of having an extended fantasy about the making of it. a lame thing to hav done, but rewarding.

the funniest scenes are:

Sydney - When PBH is in the car with Sam Jackson. PBH pulls out a cigarette and Jackson tells him to put it out. PBH says "no" a few times and Jackson just gives up. Then he turns to PBH and says "alright....can I have on then?"

Boogie Nights - There were so many scenes in the movie that made me laugh. But particularly when Mark Wahlberg is at the record company and just goes crazy. There's just something hilarious about Wahlberg when he gets really mad.
