The incontinent Scotsman had a wee accident.

Brayson87 said...

I have no favorites but "Objects in Space" on Firefly was pretty good though.

Moose said...

1. "Not Penny's Boat"
2. The "Frazier" episode when they go to the ski chalet.
3. The season 2 finale of "OINTB" when Rosa steals the van and runs down Vee.

orangesoda said...

It's Always Sunny might have gone to shit in the last two seasons but The Nightman Cometh is the best thing to have ever happened to television.

sandybrook said...

The last episode of MASH

Hugo Pedersen said...

Sopranos "Pine Barrens"
South Park "Make Love, not Warcraft"
Curb Your Enthusiasm "Palestinian chicken"

Ophelia said...

Brayson I love that episode! For this I might have to go with Blink from Doctor Who though

aanjheni said...

Firefly "Out of Gas"

AlleyKat said...

The episode with the cursing crime in the wire...never been bettered.

Sara, Making It Work said...

The series finale of Six Feet Under.
Great episode altogether but 10 minutes of non stop bawling at the end, just omgggggg ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

AlleyKat said...

*scene...cursing crme scene goddammit!

HeatherBee said...

The Dinner Party on The Office is definitely one of my favorites

Laura jay said...

The Suitcase on Mad Men

Janet Snakehole said...

“Silence In the Library/Forest of the Dead” from Doctor Who

“Flu Season” from Parks & Recreation

“The Reichenbach Fall” from Sherlock

“The Winds Of Winter” from Game of Thrones

Jon said...

Designing Women "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" or "They Shoot Fat Women..."

Ally McBeal. The one where Billy Dies.

Dynasty. Any episode that had a cat fight.

LooksLikeCRicci said...

"Dinner Party"-- The Office
"Not Pictured"--Veronica Mars
"Graduation, Part 2"--Buffy the Vampire Slayer
"Slap Bet"--How I Met Your Mother


And yes, the episode where Miss Rosa hits Vee with the van on OITNB. I was cheering in my seat. And I might have rewatched that scene more than once.

MeMyselfandIandYou said...

Mad Men - "Shut The Door, Have A Seat"

Lisa said...

"A Study in Pink"- Sherlock
"Dear Sigmund"- MASH
"The Winds of Winter"- GOT
"Hush"- Buffy the Vampire Slayer


@Jon- I LOVE "The Night the Lights Went Out in Geor-GIA"

Cree said...

The last episode of the original Twin peaks, left me wanting more for years. Wish the return would have been better, havent gotten around to finishing it yet.

MeMyselfandIandYou said...

And Swingtown, "Puzzlerama"

orangesoda said...

Oh shit, I forgot about GoT. Battle of the Bastards was epic. Playing the 'take a shot every time they say 'bastard' made it just that little bit more fun.
RIP Ramsay Bolton, True King of the North.

Glue said...

Frasier: "High Holidays"
When Martin (Frasier's dad) gets high from eating Niles' pot brownie. He was so hilarious!

"Well, you know, I was walking home, and I kept thinking about all the turns we have to make — right turn, left turn. How much easier it'd be if we just could go straight over the trees, over a building. That's what a giant would do. They should let everybody be a giant for a day!"

Jennifer said...

Greg the flamboyant kid on Curb Your Enthusiasm!!
Lmao at the episode where Larry gives him a sewing machine and he makes a pillow sham for Susie!!

And that Seinfeld episode where Elaine dances at the work party!!

Greg the flamboyant kid

LooksLikeCRicci said...

Shoot. I forgot about "Hush."

In that same vein, you'd have to add "Once More with Feeling" from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to my list.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

Babylon 5 Severed Dreams.

cc423 said...

That Thanksgiving episode of WKRP

Glue said...

Family Guy: The Tan Aquatic with Steve Zissou

"Hey, Copernicus, why don't you navigate yourself to the back of the line
with your feet and stand there with your shirt?"

"Oh squiggly line in my eye fluid.
I see you lurking there on the periphery of my vision.
But when I try to look at you, you scurry away.
Are you shy, squiggly line?
Why only when I ignore you, do you return to the center of my eye?
Oh, squiggly line, it’s alright, you are forgiven."

"Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Conway Twitty."

soleJahway said...

Mines always sunny too. :)
Three episodes really.

When the gang are in a service station during a heist (bc of Dennis, of course).

The gang goes to hotlantic city

And the episode where they come up w the lyrics to nightman (same as you?).

Close runner up, the office episode where Mike Scott orders the, "gabagool," at the olive garden.

And, ~scene~ ;)

Muckduck said...

The Office (US) Dinner Party

Freckles said...

Breaking Bad with Tuco and his uncle ringing the bell in the nursing home is one of my faves

Fiendish Man said...

Frasier, "The Candidate". I watch it every Election Day so I have something to smile and laugh about, no matter how my candidates do.

Farmgirl said...

Pine Barrens - Sopranos
Blink - Doctor Who
The one where Larry gets a pubic hair stuck on his uvula at Xmas - Curb

orangesoda said...

@sole, the 'gabagool' Office is one of my favorites too. In fact, 'gabagool' is a frequently used term in my house because of that, haha.

Oh, thinking of Sunny, 'The D.E.N.N.I.S System' was brilliant as well. Dennis is definitely the highlight of Sunny.
Mac would get it though. Rob McElhenney is looking pretty damn good these days. (I would have gone there during Fat Mac days too. I'm loyal to my boy, haha.)

PghGirl said...

Agree with @cc423. 'Turkey's Away' WKRP in Cincinnati.
'As God is my witness I thought Turkey's could fly'

Glitter said...

Seinfeld: The time they went out to "see the baby". And, the baby was hideous.

notthisagain said...

anything from the first 3 seasons of Arrested Development makes me laugh so hard I cry

"ong yong!"

pill bottle...*wink*

Mr...F!

I wont go on, itll get annoying.

AwkwardTurtle said...

The Seinfeld movie outing scene where they describe themselves by their facial expressions that people were commenting on. "hipster doofus", "wall of hair and face like a frying pan", etc.

hothotheat said...

Friends - Boyfriend bonfire
Its Always Sunny - Kitten Mittens
OITNB - Rosa steals the van (to be honest you need to see the whole season to understand why that was awesome)

LEANNE NORMAN said...

1 - The last episode of Black Adder, heart breaking every time I watch it.

2 - The last episode of Oz the scene between Chris and Tobias still shocks me every time.

3 - The first episode of Eyewitness the Norwegian original not the American remake.

Sarah Simpson Durno said...

The West Wing "Two Cathedrals"

Pixie Sticks said...

West Wing, Shibboleth

Desi Derium said...

“A War For All Seasons” from M*A*S*H

mud said...

@LEANNE NORMAN i totally agree with the last episode of Black Adder. so heartbreaking.

goran viลกnjiฤ‡ playing dr. luka kovaฤ in season 10; episode 2: Lost. that SCENE where he's reciting the lord's prayer on his knees as militants are shooting and killing people around him. amazing performance. i think youtube has video of that scene. you should check it out if you have never seen it.

david hyde pierce as niles crane in the five minute silent scene where he ends up passing out and setting frazier's couch on fire! i'm watching it right now and laughing.

carol burnett and her whole cast doing just about anything, but the scarlett o'hara scene where she comes down the staircase in the gown made from the curtains? priceless.

i watch too much tv. always have.

zerooptions said...

The I.T. Crowd, The speech

Kate said...

"Mr Monk's Favorite Show" w/ Elizabeth Perkins and Rena Sofer. Good script.
"Thank you for not knowing."

Hugo Pedersen said...

Episode 8 of Twin Peaks - the return. Hands down the best 50 minutes of television I´ve ever seen.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Since I'd rather bring something new to the conversation than a few excellent episodes already mentioned, I'd offer:

1- Friends- "The One with the Christmas Armadillo" -- not sure I've ever laughed harder at a television episode.

2- Breaking Bad - "Pilot" -- Flawless

3- The X-Files - "Nisei" -- Best cliffhanger in TV history

HellnoKitty said...

I loved that series. I was about to enter this episode as a favorite too.

HellnoKitty said...

Fraiser's "Star Mitzvah" episode, where Frederick wants Fraiser to give a blessing at his Bar Mitzvah. Because Frasier isn't Jewish, he decides to make it more special by giving it in Hebrew. Noel Shempsky overhears this, and offers to help Frasier translate it in return for a favour - he wants Frasier to go to the Star Trek convention and get a signed autograph of the Enterprise captain, Scott Bakula (he can't go himself because of William Shatner's restraining order). Of course Frasier fails to get the autograph. A distraught Noel vows revenge on Frasier and translates his blessing into Klingon. Hilarious!

Watergirl said...

Frasier Bebe is the devil
Niles' Bali Hai episodes

Glue said...

@mud

YES! That Frasier scene at the beginning of the show (think it was a Valentine's episode) w/ Niles (David Hyde Pierce) as he was getting ready for a date...
...the ironing board, the blood, the fire. Hilarious!

I agree @mud, truly one of the BEST scenes ever in sitcom history w/o any dialogue.

YummyBoogers said...

Beverly Hills 90210 - the episode where Ray pushes Donna down the stairs.

Jon said...

I feel the people trying to re-boot Frasier are planting comments here for a little free PR. Not once in my life have I ever heard anyone say Frasier was their favorite show much less be able to describe random episodes in detail. Something fishy in the water.

Brooklyn Girl said...

Seinfeld - The Yada Yada episode.

Marianne Duer said...

The Mary Tyler Moore Show - Chuckles Bites the Dust.

soleJahway said...

We do the gabagool too, lol (I was adopted by NYC Italians, so, it's apt).

And our other is, "what is going on up here?" Nightman, lol.

Non TV, we know and constantly recite the Mothers Day YouTube skit. We've been doing it for ten years, now, "the baby," is doing it too! "Will ya pick up your feet please..." Flips the key chain. LOL you've got to amuse yourself.

Pace! :)

just sayin' said...

The bookended premier and finale of Breaking Bad, with so many Easter eggs in the finale referring back to the first episode. And ending with Badfinger's Baby Blue. Perfection.

Glue said...

@Jon

No, not from any PR firm, I actually like the show. John Mahoney & David Hyde Pierce absolutely made that show. Not that it matters, but I'm totally against a Frasier reboot.



bunny honey said...

Star Trek "The Borg".

OB said...

The Office "Dinner Party", "The Dundies", "Booze Cruise"

Frasier "Moon Dance"

Seinfeld "The Rye"

Breaking Bad--there are so many, but "Ozymandias", "Face Off" "Three Days Out" and one no one ever seems to mention but everyone loves "Peekaboo"

The Sopranos "Whitecaps"

All in the Family: where Sammy Davis Jr comes to the Bunkers, and the one where Mike and Gloria leave for California

And of course no one besides me probably likes Two and a Half Men but the Charlie Waffles ep kills me every time

Unknown said...

Probably Breaking Bad "Salud" or The Wire "Mission Accomplished."

Or True Detective, Season 1, "Who Goes There"

Spitbite said...

Deep Space Nine - Baseball

Nor Cal said...

Series finale of Halt and Catch Fire

Series finale of The Wire

a beautiful virago named hope said...

Barney Miller Quarantine episodes.

Dark Angel second season Halloween episode.

mercyprosperity said...

I couldn't decide.
Frasier, "Ham Radio"
Columbo, "Any Old Port in a Storm"
Andy Griffith Show,
"A Date for Gomer"

mud said...

@Glue Jon caught us trying to help reboot frasier! LEANNE NORMAN and i are also trying for a black adder reboot while it's my ultimate goal to reboot the carol burnett show. busted!

Neal M said...

The only one I can think of that still remains with me after a long period of time (as opposed to say a Seinfeld episode I thought was really funny, but don't care if I ever see it again) was an episode of Star Trek, and I am not sure if it was TNG or DSN.
It was a Nazi Germany parallel, where a war criminal was on trial for "holocaust" type of crimes. He was pleading guilty and admitted to his evil acts. But the Star Trek crew were able to determine that he was just a paper pusher with nothing to do with the crimes, but felt so guilty about what happened he was willing to sacrifice himself to bring some peace to the victims families etc. It was quite powerful in a way that I can't remember another show being for me.

Guest777 said...

Futurama - The late Philip J. Frye
Just awesome storyline

Neal M said...

I found it - Star Trek Deep Space Nine - Duet.

Roman Holiday said...

I love Lucy when she meets Bill Holden and burns her fake nose with the cigarette lighter! Cracks me up everytime! Curb your enthusiasm when the bakery is closing for good and Jeff buys all of Davids favorite cakes and it saves Susie's life after the nanny throws her out the window! All the Seinfeld episodes had me in stitches. There are just so many - I think I love them all the same! I am a tv fiend!!!!! I even love the Love Boat! The cheesier the better!

Scandi Sanskrit said...

The only thing I can think of right now is “The Portrait” (episode 3 of “Let Them Eat Cake”, LOL). ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍♀️

https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0630768/ ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ’

arbfuldodger said...

Series finale of Six Feet Under

Turkey's Could Fly episode of WKRP

Death of Col. Henry Blake MASH

er - when Dr. Mark Green dies from his brain tumor

last but not least Taxi - What does a yellow light mean?

Neal M said...

The episode of Mash where Colonel Blake leaves the Unit to go home, and ends with him being killed when his plane is shot down over the Sea of Japan, was pretty strong as well.

Hootspa said...

Another one for "Frasier."

Let's go romping through the fenns and spinneys and meet up with Peppo the Dwarf at.....

"Nightmare Inn"




S S said...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- "The Body".
Incredible, poignant, totally unexpected, next-level artistic episode of a phenomenal show.

Debby said...

The Simpsons. How I spent my strummer vacation. You can’t get any better than the Stones and the Simpsons.

Boo Hearne said...

WILL & GRACE - Season 2 - HOMO FOR THE HOLIDAYS

The funniest episode ever. Jack comes out to his mom, who gives him a little secret info, herself. The banter between Grace and Karen at the Thanksgiving table is perfection. Their timing is right on target. A laugh fest. A must watch, for sure.

Mahogany1 said...

When Crystal and Alexis fell in the pool.

Second is whenever those little devil girls show up on Queen of the South.

summer said...

Seinfeld - The Hamptons

(One of my top 5 favorite episodes, impossible to pick just one)

Andrea said...

Tuttle in MASH or Riddle of the Sphinx from Inside No. Nine

malcam66 said...

Twin Peaks, the one where we find out Leland is Bob.

Frasier - When Frasier sings Buttons and Bows

Always Sunny - This is Classic Tammy.

Spongebob - the prehistoric episode is genius.

luckythewondercat said...

Charlie Brown's Christmas.

Depeche Model said...

Hard to pick from Frasier or Seinfeld, many are good and have already been mentioned. The Frasier one when he's pretending tone jewish, and Niles dresses us as Jesus....fucking hilarious.

A British sitcom 'Black books', has one of my favourite ever episodes 'Fever' when London is going through a heatwave, and to sty cool, Bernards smashes a frozen bottle of wine against the wall, the he put a wooden spoon into, and licks it like a giant lollipop. I think I peed myself al little when I saw that the first time.

Seinfeld: one of the very early ones, when Elaine has a boyfriend staying over for too long, and he would not leave.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

SOme “Golden Girls” episode.

Thot Crimes said...

Sanford and Son. The episode where Lamont gets a traffic ticket, and he and Fred go to court to fight it.
