All-Time Favorite Scenes From TV

Since the movie thread seemed to go so well, I thought I'd start one for TV as well.

This would be mine. I've seen it so many times by now, but it still makes me cry every time. It's perfect, from the acting, to the writing, to the music.

I think that this is clearly the greatest scene in TV history. Seriously, the acting and the depth of these characters are so great that if more people would watch this show it would change the world.

Its the most insightful show on television.

This is easy for me. From last season's The Office finale, The Job. Couldn't find it on Youtube, so here's the written version:

Pam (to camera): I haven’t heard anything. But I bet Jim got the job. I mean, why wouldn’t he? He’s totally qualified, and smart, everyone loves him. And if he never comes back again, that’s okay. We’re friends. And I’m sure we’ll stay friends. We just … we never got the timing right. You know? I shot him down, and then he did the same to me, but you know what? It’s okay. I am totally fine. Everything is going to be totally …

Jim: Pam. Sorry. Um, are you free for dinner tonight?

Pam: Yes.

Jim: All right. Then it’s a date.

Pam (to camera): I’m sorry, what was the question?


I've watched this scene probably 50 times, know what's coming, know the dialogue off by heart, and yet I still get teary every time I see it. The expression on her face is amazing. Those crazy kids.

Speaking of Friends... the blackout episode, when Chandler is stuck in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacher.

That clip is all it took. I hope this show is on BBC America.

"There was cupping!"

I think my favorite scene from Friends is when Monica and Chandler are finally outed from their secret affair, because Phoebe, Joey and Rachel start to mess with them, with Phoebe coming on to Chandler, and Chandler having to play along because his relationship with Monica is still a secret.

"I can't wait to have all the sex."

One of my all-time favorite scenes is from the season 5 finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "The Gift."

I'd link to a clip if there were anything remotely worthwhile on YouTube, Buffy-wise.

But basically (and this will just sound crazy if you haven't seen it), Buffy and Dawn are atop the scaffolding, and the portal has been opened because Dawn's blood has been spilled, and Buffy realizes that "death is your gift" means that she has to sacrifice herself to save the world.

"Dawnie, I have to," she says, and the saddest music ever begins to play, and while at first you don't hear what she says to Dawn, she runs off the scaffolding (in slow motion at first) and swan-dives off it, into the portal, and she dies with a look of calm acceptance on her face, and you hear the voice-over of everything she told Dawn before jumping. Then her friends are devastated as they gaze upon her broken body on the ground.

And then, fade up to her headstone: "Buffy Summers. She saved the world a lot."

And I bawl my fool head off.

(But it's okay, because Willow and the Scooby gang resurrect her next season, not knowing they're pulling her out of heaven, not some untold hell dimension. Oops.)

The race scene in the Goodies episode 'Black and White Beauty'.

No matter how many times I've seen it, it still kills me. Hilarious.

Also...

Steve Holt is a bastard. He doesn’t even know who his real father is! What else don’t we know about Steve Holt? George Michael Bluth is a cool guy. His dad is a powerful executive, working for this man. The girls like him just fine. Young and old, it doesn’t matter... in the dark.

Cori, the Buffy scene you're describing, it's always Spike's reaction that gets me.

For me, it's the diner scene at the end of the Marine Biologist episode of Senifeld.

Honorable mention to the scene in Arrested Development where Gob hires the male strippers to fake a drug deal and then fake making an arrest..."What cops?! These are strippers! Look how hot they are!!"
