Default Great subtle moments in movies

Inspired by Rushmore's thread, except kind of the opposite. What's a terrific moment that you don't think most people are aware of?

The Big Lebowski has about 100, but my favorite is when Jackie Treehorn is talking to the Dude - Treehorn says, "People forget that the brain is the biggest erogenous zone.", and the Dude says - "on you, maybe." Perhaps I'm an idiot, but the implication to me was always that the Dude's [censored] was about the size of his head, which is a pretty hilarious joke.

Anyway, list better ones than that.

In Commando when John Matrix learns that Bennett isn't dead. This one is pretty hard to top.

My hunch is that over 90% of the subtle movie-moments suggested in this thread will, in fact, be some of the least subtle moments from said movie.

Sideways has a ton of these. Some of Giamatti's facial expressions are priceless in this movie. The first few that come to mind are when they are sitting at bar, and his buddy lies about his book being published. The other is the pep talk outside the restaraunt.

Asking OOT for subtle is like asking a grease fire for tips on staying cool.
