I love the movie Top Gun. It is one of my favorite movies of all time and I watch it again and again. There is one scene in the movie that makes me insane. It makes me insane again and again. No one else in my family, including the Navy vets, go bonkers when they see this scene. Only me.
For those of you who don't know, the movie is about a Navy pilot (Maverick) and his time at the US Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Training School (Top Gun). During the course of the training, his plane goes into a flat spin, he and his co-pilot (Goose) are forced to eject, and Goose dies.
There is a scene later in the movie where Maverick, in a very emotional tribute to his 'rear', throws Goose's dog tags into the ocean.
THIS SCENE MAKES ME NUTS!
Goose was married. Goose left a widow and, more importantly, a son. Goose's tags should have gone to his son. No one will ever convince me that this is what should have happened. No one will ever convince me that, in the real world, this would have happened.
My daughter's insane moment springs not from a movie, but from a video.
Carrie Underwood sings a song about a marriage that does not take place because the groom, a military man, dies just before the wedding. In this video, the chaplain and the commanding officer show up at her house, in their shiny shoes, to notify her of the death and, at the funeral, she is presented with the flag.
THIS SCENE MAKES HER NUTS!
The men in the shiny shoes do not notify girlfriends, fiancees, shack-ups, live-ins, cohabitants or any other variety of partner. They notify FAMILY. It is irrelevant to the men in the shiny shoes who the deceased wanted notified. They notify family.
So, what is the scene in which movie, video, book, etc. that makes you crazy? Not crazy enough to not watch whatever it is - just crazy every time you watch it.
