When an actor gets a script and there's a rich monologue there, they must start drooling. Then, they might get nervous.

Watch Pulp Fiction online and there's one of the most iconic ones ever -- thank you, Samuel L. Jackson, for making our toes curl in fear of you!
Then there's the one that can be seen when you watch Independence Day online that had us ready to fight those aliens!
