    Meg Ryan having an orgasm in a diner, in When Harry Met Sally.  After which another patron tells the waitress "I'll have what she's having".

    Or Steve Martin playing a dimwit (in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) who asks, in the presence of a female dinner guest, "May I go to the bathroom".  Michael Caine gives his consent, and the Steve Martin character sits there staring into space with a glazed look in his eyes.

      When I read the thread topic, the only thing that came to mind was When Harry Met Sally, the diner scene!  I do remember the Steve Martin one, too, now that you mention it - another great one!

    "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover"

    The cook roasts the wife's lover, she feeds him to her husband-the thief.

    "Animal House" scene with the late John Belushi stuffing his cheeks with mashed potatoes in the school cafeteria after announcing "see if you can guess what I am now" after Babs says "that boy is a P-I-G, pig".

    He pops his cheeks, mashed potatoes go everywhere and he proudly says...."a zit, get it?"   A huge food fight ensues!

    My all time favorite was in the 1963 film Tom Jones - with Albert Finney as Tom having dinner with a floozy in a roadside inn - it was the way they ate the roast chicken!  wooooohoooo!

    Joy Luck Club when the non-Asian hubby totally messes up Chinese etiquette at his first meal with the family.

    And I know it's not a movie or a meal, but any time I think of entertainment and food, my mind shoots directly to Lucille Ball in the candy factory. smile

    I didn't start out as a meal scene but the fight Mark and Daniel in Bridget Jones' Diary where they start in the street and wind there way through a restaurant breaking up the place disturbing the meals and a birthday song all the while the music score was "It's raining men." I was priceless.

    Oh my god, there's one scene in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life where Eric Idle's in a nice restaurant at the piano playing a song about it being awfully nice to have a pen*s.  Then this freaking huge man comes in to have his dinner, hurls and orders everything in the menu. He eats so much and hurls throughout and John Cleese keeps feeding him until the last little bit makes him explode. Aaaaaaaaggghhhh!

    It's not my favorite but it's so disgustingly memorable. big_smile

      "Ah..I hope Monseur is feeling better"?
      "Yeah...better get a bucket, I'm going to throw up".

      The whole Mr. Creosote bit would simply be too gross if they hadn't made it way over the top.  That's what made it so hilarious.

      One of my favourites too.

    I love it in Secondhand Lions, when they are at the diner.

    It is not so much the eating, as the scene that follows.

    Pulp fiction.

    Vincent: Douglas Sirk steak, and a vanilla Coke.
    Buddy Holly: How would you like that? Burnt to a crisp or bloody as hell?
    Vincent: Bloody as hell.

    Its the only way to have a steak.
