I have two personal favorites...

The first is from the movie Blade Runner. Roy Batty saving Decker from the roof and his quote.... the music, the staredown, and then Roy stating: "Ive seen things you people wouldnt believe... attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser gate... and all these moments... will be lost, in time...like..tears in rain. Time to die."

And then he dies.... it was a moment of pure emotional awesomeness.  

My second is from the TV anime series Robotech. Rick Hunter is in his bunk listening to noise coming from his neighbor Max, who had just gotten married to Miriya. She cooked the coffee pot... but as Rick is laying there, he starts to think to himself...

"Roy, you used to tell me, that before you could love someone, you have to like them first... I like Lisa.. I think I.. oh I dont know.. Im so tired... I'll think I'll just....."

And then he was asleep, and the camera pans over to the stars out the window... to me.... that was pure emotional perfection.

Some movies that always get me:-Capricorn One, The Dead Zone, Heaven can wait (Warren Betty version), Starman, Tom Horn and Breaking Away. And can't help it...Robo Cop when he returns to his home that is being sold and has a vision of his wife. Heck I even tear up to Star Wars. LOL PLANETKURTH :earth:

Somewhere in Time...always had the hots for Seymour. Even though the time travel part is well...no way, goofy, you still root for Reeves to get there (1912) some how. Taking just enough time he gets there finally then he's a full fledged geek! With his decade old suit he's a roomless stalker. When Plummer's charactor has him attacked I so wanted Chris to become the man of steel LOL! The photo, the coin with Seymour yelling Richard over and over. Then all he has is that portrait of her now knowing she was looking at him when taken. I sure miss Reeves.
Bicentennial Man...I thought I was a master of knowing classic movies and that I've seen them all? WOW you got me...I've never seen this, but I'm going to now! Cool I'll hold faith in your taste for sure! PLANETKURTH :earth:

Strange that both quotes come from characters named Roy, huh? And stick with the first one.

Roy Batty, the combat android, and Roy Folker, the 'big brother' of Rick Hunter... who died in that series. First cartoon series Ive seen to actually have main characters die!

Do yourself a favor.... find Robotech and watch it... first anime series to come to america, and it totally was amazing. Actual character development, first interracial couple in a cartoon, first interspecies couple in a cartoon.. actual main characters die! It was the greatest series I ever grew up with.
