The gentleman is always properly dressed

Some unlikely screen moments that impressed me

These are just a few scenes of the top of my head that I found particularly moving, perhaps because I wasn't expecting them in the particular medium I was watching at the time. With any luck, this little exercise will help me get Michelle Branch's "Goodbye to You" out of my head until the next time I stumble on the relevant BtVS episode...

  • Patrick Stewart as Gurney Halleck when he recognized Paul Atreides amongst the Fremen that were raiding the smugglers' spice operation. (from David Lynch's Dune)

  • Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine delivering the line, "You're hurting me," to the advanced drone as he sacrifices himself for the good of Voyager's crew. (from Star Trek: Voyager, "Drone")

  • The silent and subtle exchange between Amber Benson and Alyson Hannigan as Tara and Willow just after the memory crystal is crushed. (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Tabula Rasa")

There are probably more, but I'm curious to see what you all will come up with. Thoughts?
