Probably go with something like hiding the body in the wardrobe in The Kipper And The Corpse or anything out of Basil The Rat
has me in stitches every time.
but I'm going for the one where Father Stone walks in on Ted in the bath.
is when Dougal tries to leave a room, but walks the wrong side of the door. Gets me every single time.
troubling the whale in The Marine Biologist episode. Oddly, that scene prompted me to specialize my degree. I have a shit degree in Aquatic Biology.
A great episode all round
jerry and george are set for their meeting at nbc when george abandons jerry to try to involve david letterman in his breakup.
seinfeld gets called in for the meeting the moment george disappears and says
"i was wise to hitch my wagon to his star"
Today... smoking's going to save lives.
Extras Darren lamb and the fountain pen.
Alan Partridge meets Dan Moody
most of Spaced.
Hey! Wow! I'm actually good at this! Maybe I'm a natural! Yeah I'm a jogger. Of course there had to be a sport for me; I just never realised! I'm a natural jogger! Feel the legs, like two great steam locomotives, pumping away...I'm Cram, I'm Ovett, I'm...unstoppable..I'm..Jesus..is that a stitch? I..fuck, I think I'm going to be sick..I've got to slow, I need to to...walk. I think I'm going to puke. I am literally going to die. What an idiotic boob I was about ten or eleven seconds ago
hell, so much from the entire series
(as with above, lots of Community, too)
but I really, really like the introductory couple of scenes -- nice playing around with form, and also Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs wrestling. :D
The scene where he chucks an eppy and trashes his ice cream van
I can't see any of the current big US sitcoms having the balls to give one of their main characters an apparent mental breakdown that turns the character from the standard 'straight man' into a yelping zeppelin explosion of a human being
they *were* on a break.
Ross has got a decent case, to be honest.
friends is pretty funny too. Deal with it.
people kept ringing the bell!
Held up like a loofah by the foreman of the night
However, my favourite self-contained scene is probably Papa Lazaru's appearance in League Of Gentleman. From the knock on the door to 'You're my wife now,' it's horrifyingly funny and has me in stitches throughout.
howling with laughter.
there's another great scene where it's past lights out in the cell and he and Godber are talking. really magical stuff. or the one where they have a game of cards in a coal bunker, or the scenes in the pub where Fletch goes for a pint when they're out digging, or the one where someone nicks his fruit, or the "knickers down" gag with MacKaye.
pretty sure i've laughed as much as these scenes as any in any other sitcom. Barker was a one-off.
The last scene of the last episode.
'I said right down to the photobooth'
The way these scenes are played out bit by bit across a bunch of episodes, slowly building up and adding layers to various running jokes, is a large part of why I loved this newest series.
It felt sort of like a uniquely Arrested Development-style Arrested Development movie; in that it was essentially the content of an episode from the original series zoomed in 15x. I talked more about it in the thread.
Really hope it makes it to DVD, just so it can be a part of my next big AD re-watch. It'll be a very welcome part of it.
And much like the original series, there are so many jokes/storylines that are more rewarding with repeat viewings. Like the end of the family meeting scene I mention, which is in George Michael's episode.
Loved the "now, you... have got some mice to scoop out of the sea" bit. Rewound about that about ten times.
whenever he plays Beatles tunes back in time
When Jazz gets thrown out for the first time - Uncle Phil listening to classical music...
