One of film's most quotable lines is A Few Good Men's classic "You can't handle the truth." Watching Jack Nicholson's cocky commander get completely goaded into his on-screen confession was both priceless and unexpected. For the lion's share of the scene, Nicholson's character Nathan Jessup is in control of Tom Cruise's Kaffie -- and then it all flips.

Say what you want about Cruise, but he was just as on the mark in this scene as Nicholson, who earned a well-deserved Oscar nomination for the part. Just like in real life, sometimes watching the bad guy sink themselves is really the best revenge.
