Movie Meme, Day 9: Best Scene Ever

This was a bit of a silly question. The ever had be rolling my eyes. What to do? What to do? When in doubt look to Katharine Hepburn.

This is probably my favourite performance ever and this scene, though short, is just brilliant (remembered how I gushed about the film). Enjoy.

I'd find it impossible to choose. This is a wonderful scene though - for Hepburn to take hold of the viewer with such intensity is fantastic but to do it completely alone is different class.

Haha she is so fantastic!
You know what scene I love with her, perhaps my fave Hepburn moment, that scene where she and James Stewart are drunk in "The Philadelphia Story", he's carrying her while singing "Over the Rainbow" and run into Cary Grant and her fiance.
Her reaction to that moment gives me little bursts of pleasure with a mere thought.
