I'm looking for movies that have scenes in them where someone gets shocked with a defibrillator. CLEAR!

I'm probably going to get shot for this, but...

Also the defibrillation keyword on imdb lists some films.

Also, Mission Impossible 3, near the beginning.

Are you looking for proper defibrillator use? If not, Scream 4.

I know it's TV, not a film, but didn't Baywatch get out the defibrillator every time they wanted to show... you know... boobs?

I'm pretty sure it happens in BASEketball with Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They go to the hospital to see the kid that's dying and hilarity ensues.

Firefly episode Ariel has defibrillators used for their intended purpose and to take down a healthy person.

Les chansons d'amour has a quite depressing scene like that (subtitled in Portuguese in the link, sorry). The French say CHOC! instead of CLEAR! apparently.

Robocop 1 has an especially intense one, since I read that they got a real medical trauma staff to do that scene.

That scene from The Abyss (won't mention spoilery thing here) was and the stuff leading right up to it is pretty great. I'm glad the first one up here was Flatliners, tho.

There was a Simpsons episode where a veterinarian uses one on a hamster. Sorry, couldn't find an English version, but you get the idea.

Not a defibrillator, but a giant needle in the heart that does the job of a defibrillator. Hard to go wrong with this scene from Pulp Fiction. Except that it's not a defibrillator.

There's a great funny scene on the television show ER where Lucy Knight uses one on Carter accidentally. (Of course, there are many other scenes from just about every episode showing regular use as well)

Haven't seen it, but Jackie Chan + baby + car-battery-as-defibrillator makes me totally want to: Rob-B-Hood.
