I've always loved Val Kilmer's performance in "Tomestone" as Doc. "I'm your huckleberry" is one of my favorite lines.

But, my favorite comes from a more obscure but fantastic series called, "Rich Man, Poor Man 2" that starred Peter Strauss. His nephew is hurt in Las Vegas, his senate career is in jeopardy and he has to take on the antagonist. When Maggie, his attorney and love interest says "what about us?" all Rudy Jordache (Strauss) can say is, "I'm not thinking past Vegas." He never made it back to D.C. Even after 32 years that scene still haunts me to this day. Art does imitate life at times.
