I have a new one, the hotel room scene with Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood and Denzel Washington in Flight.

Hilarious comic relief in a pretty grim film.

I knew John Goodman before he went west to become a star. My then father-in-law, Howard Orms, was an acting instructor, among other things, at South West Missouri State, in Springfield Mo, and directed and taught John. I was living on Bull shoals lake, in the Ozarks, at Howards resort and John and the cast from summer tent theater would come down and hang out at cast parties. John was a slim and handsome college student at the time and his tallent was obvious. We all figured he would make it big some day but none of us imagined he would also be so big in size! A good guy who never forgot where he came from and who helped him along the way.

The Shomer Shabbos scene in Fargo is particularly memorable for me.

The Big Lebowski last scene, when he and the Dude are scattering Donny's (Steve Buscemi) ashes and he manages to scatter them all over Jeff Bridges.

Not really hilarious but a good closing scene for the film.

Don't forget acting president of the US in West Wing. Something to the effect of:

"You may not have noticed, but I'm about one cheese burger away from a coronary. We have to have the succession worked out"

I'll have to google that and see what the lines really are.

added in edit, thank you wikipedia.

Goodman's character was:
Born in Liberty, Missouri, Walken is a Vietnam veteran, is possibly married, has a dog named Bess and is "one prime rib dinner away from sudden cardiac arrest."
Walken was Speaker of the House and became acting President during a national emergency involving Zoey Bartlet (the position of Vice President had just been left vacant). President Bartlet invokes the 25th Amendment and temporarily resigns and assumes the presidency again a few days later.
He attempted to gain his party's nomination for the presidency later; despite winning the Iowa caucus, Walken lost the nomination to Senator Arnold Vinick of California.
An opponent to the Bartlet administration, Walken is a Republican.
