My favourite would be the crawly bugs random pizzicato in "In the Idol's Temple" from Raiders. As far as I know he was the first to employ this technique, and has appeared since in countless horror movies and about half of all X-Files episodes!

Oh, I assure you, it has been used before.

Figo, who's voting for Temple of Doom ("Nocturnal Activities") because it reminds him of a similar passage in Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony.
