IMO, the best scene is when ray liotta walks across the street and pistol whips the neighbor who was harassing his girl and then talking trash.

This post is relevant to this forum b/c i was drinking homebrew when i developed my opinion.

Nah...

Although that is a very good scene....

The best, however, is when Tommy come back and kills Billy Batts after he keeps telling him to go get his ****ing shinebox!

Just a great movie all the way around. I'd say what jumped to my head is the scene where they eat dinner at Pesci's moms after the killing and Pesci says he needs the butcher knife to cut the leg off a deer that they hit with the car. Such a ridiculous story and she is like, sure take it. I guess in a movie loaded with lotsa good gang violence, the comedy stands out for me.

Of course I love where he shoots the guy dead who is serving them drinks after he mouths off for being shot in the foot earlier as well. That scene is violent and funny.

Especially the way in which they describe it. "the foot" "the paw" "the hoof"

+1, i worship when he calls it a paw and a hoof.

also love that part when the mom is telling the story about the old man and his wife.. "oh you, you're always talking"

i also love any scene when joe pesci's character calls ray liotta "henjri"

For comedy: It's gotta be when they're diggin up the body, Henry is pukin' and Tommy says something like "Hey here's a leg. Here's a wing"

For pure badassness: the "F**k you, pay me" scene.

For technical merit: the long tracking shot when Henry and Karen are on their date at the Copa.

Really....any scene in this movie could be the best scene. But i'll explain why this one is the best.

it's the best b/c Ray Liotta does exactly what every single one of us has wanted to do to some a$$hole who deserved it at some point....he did exactly what we all wanted him to do....at that moment in the film, i lived vicariously thru Ray Liotta.......after the scene my heart was beating fast and the adrenaline was flowing........it really just made me want to go pistol whip the $hit out of the first person i saw. I think we all like to see people get what they deserve and that's why the scene was so satisfying.
