Think ''Prison Break'' had the best bust-out? Not quite. These scenes were all runaway successes, from ''Escape From New York'' to ''Misery'' -- but, beware, spoilers inside!
HAPPY, TEXAS (1999)
THE ESCAPEES Harry Sawyer (Jeremy Northam) and Wayne Wayne Wayne Jr. (Steve Zahn)
FLED FROM A chain gang
HOW THEY DID IT The petty criminals steal a trailer and assume the identities of the car's owners: two gay beauty pageant organizers on their way to train young girls in Happy, Texas. But the escape would have been easier if Harry hadn't fallen for the town banker (Ally Walker) and Happy's Sheriff Chappy Dent (William H. Macy) hadn't fallen for Harry.
