Is there a scene in a film you have to rewind and watch over and over again?

When you're watching a film you've seen before, is there a particular scene you always have to rewind and watch several times over? Either because you find it hilarious, gross, shocking or whatever?

For me, in recent years, there have been scenes in Love Actually and Anchorman that make me laugh so much, I just have to watch them over and over.

Love Actually: A scene that isn't even supposed to be funny. When Kiera Knightley finds out that Andrew Lincoln is in love with her, he storms out of his house. He's walking through the town and just coming up to a guy holding some shopping. All of a sudden, Andrew Lincoln crouches down and yells out in anger and frustration. The guy with the shopping jumps backwards in surprise. It shouldn't be funny and probably isn't, but for some reason it always makes me giggle and I have to watch it a few times!

Anchorman: When the gangs of newsreaders are having a big brawl. One of them (played by Tim Robbins I think) steps forward about to wield a machete and someone sneaks up behind him and chops his arm off! Brilliant.

When I was a kid and I was watching Airplane, the scene I would watch over and over was the bit after Elaine the air stewardess asks the passengers "By the way....does anyone know how to fly a plane?" If you've seen the film, you may remember why the scene following that made me rewind it and watch it again!

What are yours?!

Recently I've been rewatching the scene from Borat where Borat wrestles his assistance, both naked and chase each towards a hall full of people. I don't know, I just find that scene hilarious

Oh yes! I think the "Oh by the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?" line is the funniest line in the whole history of movies

One time I was watching "Airplane" when my parents came home from their evening out and walked into the room just before that line came - so they watched a few moments of what they thought was a serious drama film before it suddebnly went crazy!

Usually if I rewind it's because I'm trying to figure out what happened.

Boromirs death in LOTR. From the first part when Frodo is about to leave after Boromir tries to take the ring and he talks to Aragorn, right through to Borimir's death. I just love that whole section of the film, especially when Aragorn notices Sting going blue and turns to fight the whole load of Uruk'ai, and his fight with the big bad guy.

The bit in Human Centipede 2 where a terrified woman gives birth in a car then immediately crushes its head whilst trying to stomp on the accelerator to escape.

Or the bit in A Serbian Movie where the central character is drugged and forced to rape his 6 year old son.

I should actually point out that I've never seen any of these two movies, but they are apparently actual scenes in the films!
Awful

I quite often repeat-watch the Stick to the Status Quo scene in High School Musical...

I like the choreography.

I always rewatch the scene in The Silence of the Lambs when Hannibal says to Clarice

You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition's given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desperately to shed: pure West Virginia. What is your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of the lamp? You know how quickly the boys found you... all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars... while you could only dream of getting out... getting anywhere... getting all the way to the FBI.

Agree with Airplane, though I have to replay the scene where the Stewardess is playing the guitar and singing to the sick girl and they all get into it and her guitar swipes the IV drip out of her arm. I nearly died laughing

That film where the woman uncrosses her legs and the fat man is watching. Thatcher, that's it.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 when Voldemort says something like "Harry Potter is dead", and then does this laugh that sounds like ehehehehh. Oh my goodness it's so funny, my lil bro and I always rewind that part.

And in Jaws when he shoots the shark and it blows up, awesome. Gotta watch that twice.

I love the scene in Reality Bites where they are in the gas station and The Knack's 'My Sharona' comes on the radio and start dancing. It just makes me wanna randomly dance like that there. Happy times
