    Well... no. Why would the film continue beyond that point if that was the case? We're talking about the Coen Bros here. And Cormac McCarthy.

    The Lion in Winter nomination is a good one.

    My personal favourite is this (language):

    Definitely not safe for work.


    I do an amazing impression of the following speech, and though it's actually quite emotionally intense it's so absurdly accurate it comes off as comical. While everyone else just shouts "ADRIAAAANN", this is my go to Stallone impression.


    Also, this our time:

    Maybe C2Q has the answer? :p


    Seriously, though, I thought his intro and outro conversations were just prologue and epilogue commentary to bookend the sort of thematic feeling of the film. I didn't think the meat of its message was meant to be found there. Regardless, I will probably never watch it again. That thing is too damn long.

    The ending speech of First Blood by Stallone is some fine acting for a tense and fairly well put-together action thriller. Shame the series became stupid he-man nonsense.

    Hmm...

    -Spencer Tracy's speech announcing the verdicts in Judgement at Nuremberg.
    -Sir Cedric Hardwicke's opening narration for The War of the Worlds (even though it omits Venus).
    -Londo outlining his reasons for having Refa killed in "And the Rock Cried Out, 'No Hiding Place'" from B5.
    -John Belushi's editorial on "The Luck of the Irish" from SNL.
    -Jake Blues explains why he missed his wedding in The Blues Brothers.

    Maybe someone can find these clips.

    Not sure if it counts as an actual "monologue"....but here's Orson Welles telling a story about how he spent one day as a psychic.

    That she is. I wish we had gotten her for S5, but I'm glad JMS opted not to kill her off. Allows fans to wonder what other awesome adventures she had.
