Scenes from an Elevator

Today's shenanigans will evoke elevator scenes from movies, TV series or books. For today, let's stick to comedy and drama and shy away from crime, horror and James Bond.   Who's that elevator operator there?  Why, that's Shirley McLane in front of Jack Lemmon in Billy Wilder's The Apartment (1960)! 

Scene from latest episode of AMC's Mad Men: Joan (Christina Hendricks), Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) and Dr. Faye Miller (Cara Buono) on the down-elevator.  Do they look enamored of each other to you?

Other scenes that pop to mind come from The Bob Newhart Show (1972-1978) and the surreal elevator ride to the lowest level of Hell in Woody Allen's Deconstructing Harry (1997). 

Again, staying with comedy and drama for now, can you recall any elevator scenes off the top of your head?

Today's Rune: Growth.

There was an elevator scene in the New "OFfice" last night, with Dwight and Pam stuck in an elevator together. It was funny when Dwight pissed in the corner.
