Its got to be when Indio has shot the gun out of the Colonels hand,expecting an easy kill when the chimes run down,only to be surprised by the man with no name
with the identical watch he stole from the Colonel earlier.........Now we start. (Great scene) and the subsequent banter at the end ......Thought I was having
trouble with my adding.Great mixture of pathos,sadness,
and humour.

So many..........

The hat-shooting duel as the boys watch and comment

The match lighting off Kinski's face[copied in El Mariachi and Desperado]

Clint throwing the guy out of the hotel room,"I don't wear 'em"

The 'watcher watched'scene

The nympho landlady,"he's tall".

Great film, so many great moments.

The cigar being shot out of Manco's mouth and him just stirking up a match and relighting as cool as ice.

 The "Let Red Go..." scene... (I love how Manco uses the mirror behind the bar to size up the compition before spinning around and dispatching the henchmen...

And so many more... Tongue

One that makes me smile is when we watch Indio kill the bounty hunter responsible for his imprisonment:
The body is carried out by Indio's mates and if you look to the backwall there is a Virgin Mary statue which seems to point to the right as if telling the procession which way to exit off-stage.
Which they do.
Ok, perhaps not memorable but an example of Leone's dry wit maybe?
(Well, it makes me laugh anyway.)

  Too many to list, but -

  - the scenes with Klaus Kinski are classics.
  - the end scene where Clint is counting up the bodies of Indio's men and Luigi Pistilli tries to pounce him (very funny).  Grin
  - the final shoot-out prior to the duel between Mortimer, Manco, and Indio's men is good.
  - the scene with the old Prophet is hilarious.
  - all three characters' establishing scenes.
  - the scene in Agua Caliente where Mortimer and Manco shoot the apples off the trees.

  I like the final duel too by IMO the ones in GBU and OUATITW are much better.

Its that shot of The Bounty Hunter's  hand freed from the rope bonds in the forground to the right of shot, Indio in the background +Morricone's score. Majestic moment. and speechless like most of Leone's
 greatest scenes Wink

  After thinking about it I thought of one:

  Just before the final duel, when Indio is playing the musical watch and Mortimer is trying to get at his gun.  Just as Indio's watch stops playing, out of nowhere the same tune starts wearing, and then there's Manco packing the Henry . . . I love that scene, I don't know why I forgot about it earlier.  Grin

My favorite moment is definitly in the begining when mortimer is running down that first bounty and he sees the guy climbing down the fire escape like balcony... mortimer walks downstairs takes out his rifle and shoots the horse down... when he could have easiily taken the guy out... then as the guy he's chasing is about to get in range to shoot mortimer he pulls out that extending handle for his pistol... I love that thing!

i like the jailbreak, where manco just calmly dynamites a hole in the cell wall without a word of explanation. he does it so nonchalently it takes a while for the guy in the cell to realise he's being rescued.

i think the funiest bit is when mortimer and manco keep ordering the terrified hotel porter to do the opposite to each other, and in the end he just screams, drops the baggage and runs indoors.

and of course, the final scene, both the bodycount (22... 27!) and when he finds the money bags, still tangled in the tree and picks them up in a sort of "might as well have this too" fashion.

Love all the scenes you mention, but another one is Monco's opening scene.  When he mows down Cavanaugh's men (loved the guy with the half-shaved beard too Grin), and then we see Cavanaugh crawling towards his gun, and Monco - without even looking - raises his gun and shoots him.  That part always got me.

"Maybe next time" - always brings a tear to my eye.

I have to say one of my favorite moments is a small one, but it's great.  It's the man who is getting a shave at the barbershop when the sheriff sticks his head through the window and nods at him at the first of the movie.  The man gets up and half of his beard is gone, but he doesn't care, it makes him look more evil.  I just think that shows the brilliance of Sergio Leone and the unique quirks of his characters.

That was actually (I think) taken from an American movie, at least according to Frayling, though I can't tell you which one off the top of my head.  But still, that scene always gave me a chuckle.

And I agree with this ancient post by Man With Three Names:
