Question Under appreciated scenes!

I watched There Will Be Blood and the final thirty mins were terrific, but I couldn't help but notice that one scene is barely mentioned that is specifically powerful (Bastard in a Basket scene) but has all the hype sucked away like a milkshake by the following scene which everyone talks about.

So, is there any scenes in films that you feel get ignored or over looked due to other elements of the film?
Remaining Films of 2014 I'll check out: The Guest. Before I Go To Sleep. The Boxtrolls. A Most Wanted Man. The Equaliser. Gone Girl. Fury. Men, Women and Children. Nightcrawler. Interstellar. The Drop. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. Horrible Bosses 2. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Dumb and Dumber To. Exodus: Gods and Kings.
Best Films of the Year so far: Boyhood. Calvary. Frank. The Rover. Godzilla. The Raid 2. The LEGO Movie. Under the Skin.

Yes, you probably know two lines from "Jerry Maguire". Now name a third one.

Bonus points if you know a third line from "Scarface".

The opening scene of The Social Network is a perfect example of modern film making at it's best. Everything is firing on all cylinders. The acting is perfect, the dialogue is just impeccable thanks to a brilliant script by Sorkin, and the direction by Fincher is incredible. Not to forget, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross's chilling score. The first 10 minutes of this film are nearly flawless.

Default A lot

"Expectations vs. Reality" in (500) Days of Summer.

Annie singing "Seems Like Old Times" in Annie Hall.

Walking on the moon (second monolith) in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The "defective players" argument in Moneyball.

Dinner argument in Rushmore.

Train crash in Hugo.

Matt finds Brian Sheer on a beach in The Descendants.

Antoine steals the typewriter in The 400 Blows.

Traffic jam in 8 1/2.

George listening to Peppy's interview at the restaurant in The Artist.

I also totally agree with the person above me. That's easily one of my all-time favorite movies, and the first 10 minutes or so indicate an instant classic.
