Default Greatest minor characters in film?

A standout for me is Ernst Kessler in The Great Waldo Pepper. His recounting to Waldo of his famous dogfight is pure gold.

Anyone else have other show-stealers?

Hmm. Kind of hard to do a Han Solo impersonation with text.

The dude who kills frogs in THE MUPPET MOVIE (the old one).

Paul Giamatti in MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING.

The Train Ghost in GHOST... and the old dude in the hospital is great, too.

The newspaper boy in BETTER OFF DEAD... and the two Asian Race Car Drivers are great, too.

LaTrine in TOP SECRET! I also love Chocolate Mousse and Dejavu.

Because I watched it again last night - Detective Nulty in MURDER MY SWEET who says "I wouldn't know" as the answer to any question... I think it may be his only line of dialogue, but spoken at least two dozen times with different inflections and meanings.

This scene changed the way I write forever.

Your two leads need a ride?

They're stranded?

You gotta get them from point A to B?

You wanna show them hitchhike and then CUT TO, or do you wanna do this...

Dejavu is one of my favorite characters of all time.

"...and this is Dejavu."
Dejavu shakes hands and looks at him closely. "Haven't we met before?"
