Jesus Christ, what has happened to taste? Aside from the scene in Heathers (which I still wouldn't call iconic), most of these are second rate. I am aware though that troll-dar lights this thread up like a Christmas tree.

Kay sees that Michael has become just like his father, maybe worse, as he's called Godfather and the door to his world closes on her. The look on Keaton's face is magnificent.

Scenes that come to mind.

1) The scene with the icecream in Kramer vs. Kramer

2) The scene in The Champ when the dad dies. I cried my eyes out at that.

3) Casablanca - scene at the airport.

4) Dirty Harry "Make my day"

5) Plane scene in North by Northwest

6) Shower scene in Psycho, DUH!

There are so many others.

One word, one syllable.

I can't remember what number this came in at when the list of the most iconic memorable scenes came out with the American film critics and historians scored together.

They mentioned it on Inside The Actor's Studio.

I think when Chris Matthews starts quoting it, you've made an impact.
