Movie scene references which or how many have you noticed?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26829points) May 22nd, 2011

Thinking of movies what image or scene do you figure is used or referenced over and over even if not in the same manner? Some of the scenes I seen used many times in different ways are:
• The dead horse head in the bed (Godfather).
• Elliot and E.T. silhouetted by the moon flying on the bike (E.T.)
• The “shower scene” (Psycho)
• The crane pose (the Karate Kid)
• Victory run to the top of the stairs (Rocky)

What scenes have you noticed used or reference by many other movies or shows?

‘Castle’ always sneaks in things from Firefly and Serenity, as well as other characters’ past film and TV jobs. Always cracks me up.

And Big Bang Theory is full of them with their geeky references to Sci Fi and arguments over who would beat who in a fight and scientific inaccuracies in certain shows. Bazinga.

Badges!? We don’t need no stinking badges!

I’ve seen it parodied in Blazing Saddles and The Monkees, and UHF, as well as in the original Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

The baby carriage rolling down the stairs from The Battleship Potemkin

It has been redone, notably, in The Untouchables, and many other films.

Slo-mo fight scenes ala “The Matrix”

Buffalo Bill’s dance from “Silence of the Lambs” referenced in Clerks 2—and a Family Guy episode.
