QOTD: Do you have any favorite “memorable moments” from otherwise forgettable films?

Today’s question comes from Kirk, who wants to know:

Do you have any favorite “memorable moments” from otherwise forgettable films?
Kirk continues:

I was reminded somehow of a moment from A Man Could Get Killed, one of James Garner’s lesser successes. In it there’s a scene where a cargo of rice has been placed on a pier because it’s suspected of having something-I-forget hidden in it. Unfortunately, it then rains and the small pile of rice bags becomes a growing mountain of rice. Robert Coote then comments, “Eerie, isn’t it,” in that patented Brit deadpan. That’s virtually all I remember from the movie, but the visual and Coote’s delivery of the line is still burned into my memory.

Another one is from Merry Andrew – a lesser Danny Kaye film, but there’s a musical number near the beginning ‘Everything is Tickety-Boo’ (sic?) that I remember quite distinctly. Don’t have a clue what the rest of the movie is about.

Nothing is coming to mind for me, so I’ll leave you all to it…
