Greatest TV Scenes?

The "Fly" debate in the Breaking Bad thread made me think about this. We discussed other great TV shows tangentially, but I've never seen a thread in the MC that looked at individual scenes in television shows. We've done films, naturally, but never the tube.

I'd like to offer this candidate up as an example. It probably won't resonate with people who didn't/haven't seen Numb3rs, but the amalgamation of Krumholtz's narration, Morrow's somber, measured response, and Buck's desperate, suicidal intensity with an Arvo Part musical overlay makes this a goosebumps scene for me:

What George does at 7:14 and how he followed up at 7:37 was about the baddest assed thing I'd ever seen to that point in my life.

As for more conventional TV fare, Johnny's farewell speech still puts a lump in my throat, "I bid you a very gracious and heartfelt goodnight."



[actually, TBH, my favorite all time Johnny moment was in his last season on just a regular night. A joke fell like a dud and he looked around and said 'eff it, I'm out of here soon' and did the 'Greek Bird' ie, 'eff you' by swinging his left arm up as his right hand bent his left elbow and his left hand formed a fist, . . . you old timers surely remember the Mediterranean version of the middle finger.

Sipowicz' 'ispa this you pissy little bitch' was the best premiere scene of a series, Sia's 'Breathe Me' scene to end 6 Feet Under brings forthright and adamant tears, Elvis Costello breaking into 'Radio Radio' on SNL ****ing rawked, a million different things on Hill Street Blues that changed television forever, Buffy 'The Body' & 'Once More with Feeling,'

But if I had to pick JUST ONE



P.S. - another that sticks to me to this day is the look on Sandra Oh's face as Cristina when she looked at Dr. Burke realizing she had effed up in the OR in season one. I've never seen the verisimilitude of despair as realistic until or since on network TV.

Excellent Deadwood scene. This is another one that is way high on my list. And as most should already know about is show, NSFW.

The house episode where the building collapses and the gal dies, the last scene is amazing.
