11 Nerdy Moments Guaranteed to Make You Say FUCK YEAH!

So back on Monday, inspired by a post at Topless Robot, I posted 11 (more) nerdy moments guaranteed to make you cry. Well, now it's time to balance out the depression with some unadulterated awesomeness. I've got 11 nerdy moments guaranteed to make you say "fuck yeah!".

Now, to be clear, these aren't the only 11 or even the best 11. They're just 11 (why 11? I dunno, 'cause that's what Monday's post was...). Also, sometimes it can be tough to distinguish a moment that makes you say "fuck yeah" from an "oh shit" moment, but I've tried to to my best. And just like in Monday's post, I limited my picks to one moment per series (again, otherwise my list would just be a series of Buffy moments).

I know my list is way too movie-centric, but those were the first things that came to mind. Also, I think the grand scope of a movie -- particularly in a theater -- lends itself more to the "FUCK YEAH!" moment.

The Death Star Explodes - "Star Wars" (1977)
Does this really need any explanation?

Inigo Montoya gets his revenge - "The Princess Bride" (1987)
"Offer me money."
"Yes."
"Power too. Promise me that."
"All that I have and more. Please..."
"Offer me anything I ask for."
"Anything you want..."
"I want my father back, you son of a bitch!"

Two words: FUCK and YES!

Kirk and Picard unite - Star Trek: Generations (1994)
I know not all "Star Trek" fans liked how Kirk met his demise, but just seeing Kirk and Picard fighting together for the first time was a definite "Fuck Yeah" moment.

President Whitmore's speech - Independence Day (1996)




Say what you will about the movie as a whole, but this speech is fucking awesome.

Giles returns - "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (2002)




"I'd like to test that theory." Anthony Stewart Head kicks so much ass.

Wolverine goes berserk - "X2: X-Men United" (2003)




No, I stand corrected. Wolverine kicks so much ass.

Aragorn's speech - "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (2003)




Shit, I wanna go kill some orcs right now.

THIS IS SPARTA! - "300" (2006)
Before this got meme'd to death, it was the coolest thing ever.

Tony Stark suits up - "Iron Man" (2008)
This scene right here is why Tony Stark gets so much pussy.

Gordon gets the Joker - "The Dark Knight" (2008)
At some point, I'll find a way to get the video of this scene up here, but when Gordon said "We got you, you son of a bitch" my theater erupted... all five times I saw it in theaters.

Hulk Smash - "The Incredible Hulk" (2008)
I waited for almost two entire movies for him to say this. And it was SOOOOO worth it. HULK SMASH!

Again, I'm well aware that this isn't nearly a comprehensive list, so let me know it the comments what some of your favorites are.
