I will review the three astrophysical manifestations of black holes: AGN/quasars, microquasars, and gamma-ray burst of long duration. Then, I shall discuss the physical analogies among black holes of all mass scales, the observed coupling between accretion-disk-instabilities and relativistic ejections, and open questions in this area of research.
