In Rain Man, Dustin Hoffman's Academy Award-winning performance is marked by poignant moments that resonate with audiences. Yet, the scene that endears itself to viewers to this day was never intended to be part of the script. While in a phone booth making a call, Charlie (played by Tom Cruise) and Raymond (Hoffman) are unexpectedly interrupted when Raymond exclaims, "Uh oh, fart." Charlie is taken aback and asks incredulously, "Did you fart, Ray?" Despite Charlie's attempts to escape the overpowering smell, they are stuck inside the phone booth. Hoffman intended the incident to be a jest and never thought it would make the final cut. But both he and Cruise stayed in character, and the spontaneous exchange worked so well that it was ultimately included in the film.

Amid the slapstick that characterizes this classic comedy lies a masterful moment that cements Bill Murray's status as one of the most talented improvisational actors of his generation. During a scene in which Murray's wacky greenskeeper monologues about a Cinderella boy's meteoric rise to golf glory, Murray delivered a masterful ad-libbed performance that was captured in one unbroken take. Without any scripted lines, Murray's talent shone through as he effortlessly created a moment that has since become one of the film's most iconic and memorable sequences. The scene is a testament to both Murray's skill as an improviser and director Harold Ramis's willingness to let his actors take creative risks.
