The scene where Traudl, Gerda and Constanze wake up to artillery fire is a scene in Downfall. It's used fairly often in parodies.

In Downfall

The scene first shows a table and a glass half-filled with water shaking before focus shifts to the background to reveal Traudl, who was sleeping in a nearby bed. She was soon awakened by the explosions, however, and identified artillery fire as the source. Gerda contested her claim, but Conztanze agreed with Traudl, noting that the artillery fire is a birthday present from the Russians for Hitler.

In Downfall Parodies

Despite the short duration, this scene has been used quite often in parodies. For example, in parodies where Traudl wakes up from a dream (ReschJodSchin94's Badass Traudl gets shot), in JennieParker87's Traudl is traumatized - Situation 1, or in 1979Onetime's Traudl's secret admirers (reuploaded by LostDownfallParodies).

This scene is also frequently used to show something drastic has happened nearby or within the bunker. An example of which is in Adolf Hitler VS a fly, where Hitler tries to defeat a fly with the Pencil of Doom, whose explosion accidentally wakes up Traudl.
