Your Favorite Scenes?

We’re talking about scenes this month, so here’s an open question:

What is your favorite scene in a book?
Why is that your favorite scene?

I’ll start: My favorite scene is the end of Bridge to Terabithia, when Jess takes MayBelle across the bridge, telling her that all of Terabithia is waiting to meet its new queen. I love this scene because it’s the moment Jess passes on what he’s learned about life to his little sister. I love that it’s his sister, not someone his own age or some other classmate. It’s poignant and beautiful.

So–what’s your favorite scene?

  1. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, when Voldemort wants to kill Harry in the graveyard. Harry’s hiding behind a tombstone, but in a sheer act of bravery, he stands up.

    “…he was going to die upright like his father, and he was going to die trying to defend himself, even if no defense was possible…”

  2. One of my favorite scenes is in Moonstruck when Loretta (Cher) and Ronny (Nicolas Cage) walk home after the opera. They end up in front of his apartment and he wants her to go upstairs with him. She’s confused. He delivers a heartfelt plea–the gist being how love isn’t perfect and messes up everything (so true)–and she takes his gloved wooden hand and goes upstairs with him.
