As we seem to find ourselves in the season of the LIST, best of.....worst of.....longest.....shortest.....etc. I thought I would add one more (just for the craic).
My all time favorite TWO-PERSON screen exchange is the following:

The Big Sleep
1946, MGM,
Directed by Howard Hawks
Screenplay by William Faulkner:


VIVIAN
I'm very grateful to you, Mr. Marlowe. I'm very glad it's all over. Tell me, uh, what do you usually do when you're not
working?

MARLOWE
Mm. Play the horses, fool around.

VIVIAN
No women?

MARLOWE
Well, I'm generally working on something most of the time.


VIVIAN
Would that be stressed to include me?

MARLOWE
I like you. I told you that before.

VIVIAN
I liked hearing you say it.

MARLOWE
Mm.

VIVIAN
But you didn't do much about it.

MARLOWE
Neither did you.

VIVIAN
Well, speaking of horses, I like to play them myself. But I'd
like to see them work out a little first to see if they are front
runners or come from behind, find out what's their whole card is,
what makes them running.

MARLOWE
Find out mine?

VIVIAN
I think so.

MARLOWE
Go ahead.

VIVIAN
I'd say you don't like to be rated. You'd like to get out in
front, open up a lead, take a little breather in the backstretch
and, and come home free.

MARLOWE
You don't like to be rated yourself.

VIVIAN
I haven't met anyone yet who could do it. Any suggestions?

MARLOWE
Well, I can't tell till I've seen you over distance of ground.
You got a touch of class but...I don't know how, how far you can
go?

VIVIAN
That depends on who's on the saddle. ..., Marlowe. I like the way
you work. In case you don't know, if you're doing all right.

MARLOWE
There's one thing I can't figure out.

VIVIAN
What makes me run?

MARLOWE
Uh huh.[/i

And the way they play it.....GOOSEBUMPS EVERY TIME![/

What is yours? This topic includes any director/year/genre etc.....

I never saw that movie. I'm surprised they got such innuendo past the censors!

Interestingly this whole scene was not in the original 1945 cut of the movie, but was added for the 1946 theatrical release. There's a DVD release with both versions and a discussion of the differences.

The Big Sleep is an amazing movie.

Yes it definitely is, although the original 1945 cut is clearly the better version in my opinion.

. . . the original 1945 cut is clearly the better version in my opinion.
I find it hard to choose between them. I'm glad they gave us a DVD with both.

That's what you get, Drink, for getting out of bed this morning.
