Of course, my vote goes to Jessie Spano of "Saved By The Bell", for the "I'm so excited....I'm so scared" bit. THAT was probably the only time on SBTB that the laugh track was actually appropriate, even if the writers didn't mean it to be.

I'll admit that that part make me chuckle a little.

Anytime Lana Lang on Smallville gets hurt or scared. It's probably due to Kristen Kruek's bad acting and my hatred for Lana.

I nominate the moment from Designer's Challenge last night where the couple nixes the bed the designer picked out because "We didn't think it was sturdy enough." Mr. Shrew and I, both being twelve, laughed our asses off.

Buffy's cookie dough speech to Angel in the series finale. Supposed to be some sweet deep moment, but made me laugh my ass off.

The Smallville episode where the Princeton recruiter comes out to interview Clark, only his friends threw him a surprise party since his folks were away.

I giggled all the way through, due to "Risky Business" flashbacks. I was half expecting Pa Kent to say, "Princeton can use a guy like Clark," and Clark to blow off the recruiter by saying "What the f---."

LOL...I already thought of another one....Nathan Hastings being hit by a car on "The Young and the Restless." My sister and I almostt died. Also Andrea on 90120 suffering the same fate (except not dying). Why do they have to make someone being hit by a car on T.V. so comical?

Are we talking about that little helicopter of death thingy? If so, ITA. I had a vision of JJ standing in a toy store before they made that episode, looking at little toy choppers and going "Dude, you know what'd be really cool?" Oy vey, that thing was ludicrous.

Today, on As The World Turns. Jen is sitting on the couch sketching the same dress over and over again while totaly tweeking out on Meth, listening to Weezer's "We Are All On Drugs". I laughed for 10 minutes straingt and missed some of the other major plot points because of that.

How about Tyra's rant this season on ANTM!? I rewound it and watched it a million times, and it *never* got less funny!

Another ANTM moment: When in S3, Amanda revealed she was legally blind and everyone started to cry. It was all so fake.

Yet another ANTM moment: when YaYa, who had been flaunting her Ivy league education all season, stated that the 45-degree angles of the final competition would be confusing. Sure were, 'cause they were 90-degrees.

Or when she said that there were nine blocks around her spelling out "competition" and dumb Norelle got this smile on her face and even she knew that YaYa had miscounted.

I remember on General Hospital when Nikolas and Umily were trapped on a boat and he tried to use the phone and fell to his knees screaming "NO SERVICE!!!!!! NO SERVICE!!!!!!!"

You can't mention ANTM without the greatest unintentionally hilarious phrase in the history of humanity: "She poured BEER in my WEAVE!"

Ages ago, on One Life To Live, a couple was preparing to be remarried. Anvil after anvil fell--"I'm so happy!", "We're so in love!".
The couple was driving up to the mountains for a private ceremony, when:
(a) The woman unbuckled her seatbelt to pick up something she'd dropped.
and (b) Another car ran them off the road ad they crashed into a river.

Why did I laugh?
Because that had to be the worst written, predictable, anvil-laden death EVER.

So many 7th Heaven moments to choose from, but I'm going to have to go with, "We're poor, sir, and we're hungry." No, really, they weren't going for a laugh with that. It's what they got, though.

The big one for me from Buffy is the "dead by sunrise" first evil/big bug thing in Amends. It was just silly looking and sounding.

Jesse Metcafe throwing something against the wall when Gabrielle turned down his proposal to marry her. The acting was so bad that it just came off as hilarious.

Ahhh, so now we know where Coldplay got the idea for the video "The Scientist".

Dr. Romano's death by falling chopper



Oh this was brilliant. I hadn't watched the show since like, 1975, and I tuned in just one time to see what it was like now and this was the episode I tuned in on. I giggled for days about it. Hell, it still makes me giggle.
