In the book I am trying to write I want to pay homage to one of my favorite scenes from a movie. I want to be clear that I am referencing this scene. The dialog and actions in my book are written to mirror the movie, and my intention is that anyone who has seen the movie will instantly recognize it. This is not just a throwaway scene. I plan for it to be something serious that drives one of my character's motivations. I was wondering if anyone had any experience doing this? If you like an idea, scene, image, quote, anything really, how do you show it in your own work respectfully? Would it be considered plagiarism to actually have someone else's work, their dialog, actions, etc. help flesh out my characters?
