Annoying hypochondriac: "Dr., I have a hangnail."
Edwards: "Well, I have a brain tumor. I win. Goodbye."

Actually, that episode is full of HY moments, but I'm talking about the speech Mr. Lydell gives C.J and Mandy when CJ (who I want to be when I grow up and who was totally given the wrong information by stupid dumb ass Mandy) asks him if he wasn't supporting the Hate Crimes Bill 'cause he was embarrassed that his son was gay then wants to know if they support the President;
No, that was really the last... No, we do not. The hate crimes bill is fine. Who gives a damn? It's fine. I don't care. If you ask me, we shouldn't be making laws against what's in a person's head but who gives a damn? I don't understand how this President, who I voted for, I don't understand how he can take such a completely weak-ass position on gay rights....Gays in the military, same-sex marriage, gay adoption, boards of education - where the hell is he? I want to know what qualities necessary to being a parent this President feels my son lacked? I want to know from this President, who has served not one day in uniform - I had two tours in Vietnam. I want to know what qualities necessary to being a soldier this President feels my son lacked? Lady, I'm not embarrassed my son was gay. My government is.
And then Allison Janney delivers one of the best "Oh Shit!" faces in the history of television.

In AtS, I love the end of "The Trial". Darla makes her peace with dying, Angel pledges to stay by her side... and then the commandos and Lindsey barge in, incapacitate Angel, and revamp Darla by bringing in Dru. Maybe not a "hell yeah" moment by most people's standards, but I love it. What is it about seeing title characters suffer with me?

Mahoney (after lowering his gun): What are you gonna do, detective? Read me my rights?
Kellerman: You have the right to remain silent. (BANG!)
A definite "Hell, yeah!" moment, even though it was the beginning of the end for Mikey.
Another one from Oz:
Sister Pete: Do you believe in Jesus, Cyril?
Cyril: That's a silly question. It's not up to me, believing or not believing. We don't
choose God, God chooses us.
Hell, yeah, you just know Sister Pete will tear up her Church release papers after that.

Okay, I just confused "incapacitate" and "decapitate". Now that would have really made him suffer. And also die. Probably why it didn't happen and I had to re-read the sentence. Carry on!

Loudest 'HELL YEAH!!!' on my block. It had taken 3 long years, baby but it was worth the wait. Too bad Stompy didn't finish his job.

Topic: Celebrity Poker Showdown. When Lady Luck smiled on Nicole Sullivan and filled her gut-shot straight with a King on the river to beat Paul Rudd's trip sixes.

I loved the way the guy didn't use any of his life lines until the last question. And only then, he called his dad to say something along the lines of, "I don't need any help Dad...I'm just calling to let you know that I'm about to be a millionaire." Cheesy, I know, but the guy played it so cool :)

"I don't need any help Dad...I'm just calling to let you know that I'm about to be a millionaire."
That was AWESOME.

Total word to the Rachel smackdown on This Life - she so had it coming to her. I loved the ‘It wasn't me...’ Bam!
In the episode ‘Orpheus’, when Faith gets out of the Orpheus coma, realises Connor's gone to stake Angel, rushes down to the basement, grabs his wrist and ‘Break off a switch son, there's gonna be a whuppin'...’, and then proceeds to wipe that smirk off his face with an ass kicking. Hell yeah! I think Vincent Karthesier is a great actor and Connor was a good addition to the show, but someone needed to take him down a peg or two, and after seeing Faith just getting beaten down by Angelus and the Beast in the last three episodes, I'm so glad it was her who got to do it. Eliza Dushku is so cool as Faith.
Also, in ‘Rm w/a Vu’, when the ghost of Mrs Pierson is trying to get Cordy to hang herself by making her feel worthless and calls her a bitch and then Cordy realises ‘I'm a bitch...’ and gives ‘Polygrip’ the verbal smackdown. That was such a total HY! moment that I watch it any time I feel down.
Agree with all the posters who nominated the Class of '99 fighting back in ‘Graduation Day Prt II’ on Buffy. I love when the head vampire shouts ‘Get the kids!’ and then gets a total shit-scared look on his face when he realises the kids are gonna get him.

Any scene where Stabler metes out wall-to-wall counseling on a suspect is a HELL YEAH moment.
L&O SVU: When the the driver of the special bus was fingered for having raped one of his passengers he says something like, '"Who are you going to believe? Me or the retard?"' and Stabler kicks the chair from underneath him.

some people in the audience took advantage of his halting speech and broke into applause after the words "the Patriot Act will expire this year" left his mouth.
And members of the audience at home were clapping along, I assure you.

Yeah - oddly, from Connor's sake as well as hers - because he'd gotten to respect Faith, and I'm glad he was stopped by someone he respected.
.... and after seeing Faith just getting beaten down by Angelus and the Beast in the last three episodes, I'm so glad it was her who got to [wipe the smirk off Connor's face] - pooki
But almost everything in that whole little arc makes me say hell yeah: when Faith tells Wesley to stand back from the glass; when she vetos any attempt to kill Angelus because Angel had never given up on her; when Angel finally gets to call Angelus a jackass to his face.

Also when that slimy client tried to rape her and she clocked him over the head with a vase. I love me some Mary Jo.

They just had Nona Gaye sing the national anthem along with the recording of Marvin Gaye at the '84 all-star game (also in LA), a version widely regarded as one of the best/most controversial ever done. Amazingly well done and surprising move from the NBA considering the original controversy.

Stabler responds by sloooowly pushing aside the interrogating table, staring into NotPhelps' face, and priming for a smackdown. I respond by raising by fists to the heavens and yelling, "Aw, yeah, baby!"

(Oh and Northern Ireland beating Spain in the 1982 World Cup to get to the quarter finals was a real Hell Yeah for the country, even though I wasn't born yet!)

It choked me up big-time. HELL YEAH to spouses for life!

On CNN yesterday they showed a lesbian couple getting married in San Francisco, and at the end of the ceremony, instead of saying, "I now pronounce you husband and wife," she said, "I now pronounce you spouses for life."
It choked me up big-time. HELL YEAH to spouses for life!
Choked-up word. Take that, President Shrub, and all the narrow-minded who think two people who love and cherish each other aren't good enough for the sacred institute of marriage, which must be reserved for people like Brittney Spears.
