    Best three minutes in a movie

    There are lots of great movies out there, but my wife and I had a conversation about the best parts of movies. Mine came down to the dinner scene in Eddie Murphy's version of The Nutty Professor or the "You can't handle the truth" part of A Few Good Men.

    I'm sure there are dozens, if not hundreds, of other examples out there. So, what do you think is the best three minutes of film?

    Oh, and no spoiler alerts!
    Too many and never enough...

    The part in Memento when they reveal what was actually going on (Didn't want to give away spoilers. You are just going to have to watch the movie).

    The opening scene from Apocalypse Now. The jungle is seen from a distance, you see glimpses of Huey helicopters cutting through the air as the eerie sitar-esque opening notes begin to ring out. Just as the first line is sung "This is the end...", the jungle erupts in a Napalm blaze. Cinematic genius IMH

    I'll have to think about this, but the Phoebe Cates scene is going to be hard to beat....

    Maybe Slim Pickins going through the survival kit contents in Dr. Strangelove.

    In a film?

    Did the photographer charge extra, or just collect royalties?

    The train scene in Risky Business, with the Tangerine Dream soundtrack, was always a favorite.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
