What are some great, foreign language film clips or scenes ripe for parody subtitling?

Subtitling that "Downfall" clip has been done to death. Are there any other great scenes from foreign films that are ripe for language interpretation?

Das Boot. Or anything German, really.

Don't forget music videos (like this classic "Benny Lava" clip).

I once edited an SCR(?) file for my own amusement to subtitle the opening scene of Bergman's The Seventh Seal.

Knight: "Who are you?"
Death: "I'm Death."
Knight (shouting): "I SAID, WHO ARE YOU?"

I also wanted to tackle The Passion of Christ (which I haven't seen) so I was guessing at scenes. (It's just a joke, please don't be offended anyone.)

During scene of nailing to cross (in the manner of closed captions for the hard of hearing):

tapping sound
tap tap

Or, when presenting the crown of thorns:

Holder: "Um, well we made you a hat."

My intention was to edit a genuine SCR/SUB file and then upload it without admitting to the edit but lack of time got the better of me.
