My Favorite Scene

Each week on Tuesdays and Saturdays, I pick a movie or a season of television and select my favorite scene; the moment that most stands out in my memory; the moment that’s stuck with me for years.  It’s a nice way of revisiting older films and television series and reliving some of my favorite fictional memories.  If you have suggestions for movies or TV seasons,  zip them over via Twitter to @sleeplessdave or leave a comment on our Facebook page at https://facebook.com/KillingTime2014.
