I'd love to know what everyone is watching this summer and what moments are stand-out, laugh-out-loud funny, and utterly rewindable.

For each, list the show, characters in the scene, and any other info you want to share:
1. Best dramatic twist
2. Laugh-out-loud, piss-in-your-pants funny moment
3. New fledgling romance or UST couple
4. Best line(s) ever
5. Show stopping performances
6. Cameos that rocked your world
7. You're not a player, you just crush a lot

Spoilers for Weeds S1&2, Supernatural S1, Coupling (UK), and Eureka S1

1. Best dramatic twist

Weeds: Nancy marries a DEA agent! But it gets worse! She doesn't tell her kids, he turns out to be kind of an ass, he changes his endgame and decides to extort her, threatens Conrad, and in the end the Armenians get him! Oi!

2. Laugh-out-loud, piss-in-your-pants funny moment

Eureka: Everyone in the town is infected by some crazy pollen and it turns everyone weird! Jo can't focus on her job and when Carter asks her what she wants to do she screeches in the most girlie voice and raises her arms like she's about to start a cheer, "Let's go ice skating!" I seriously died. She's my fave and I loved seeing that side of her.

3. New fledgling romance or UST couple

Weeds: Nancy and Conrad. *le sigh*

Coupling: Sally and Patrick. I wish there was a season 5 so we could see them get hitched.

4. Best line(s) ever

Supernatural: Pretty much everything Dean says his hilarious. Like,

You know what, there's a ton of lore on unicorns too. In fact, I hear that they ride on silver moonbeams, and that they shoot rainbows out of their ass!

and this conversation between Dean and Sam,

Sam: Why'd you let me fall asleep?

Dean: Because I am an awesome brother. What did you dream about?

Sam: Lollipops and candy canes.

Weeds: I love Zooey Deschanel's bit about Cactus Cooler.

It tastes like baby asprin!

and her silly greeting,

Heart hug!

5. Show stopping performances

Um, hello! Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin in Weeds! Also, Romany Malco as Conrad Shepard rocks. I love his voice.

6. Cameos that rocked your world

Zooey Deschanel as Kat in Weeds!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Snoop Dog in Weeds!!!!!!! I also love Jim Beaver (Mr. Ellsworth of Deadwood) in Supernatural as Bobby Singer. He's just plain rad.

7. You're not a player, you just crush a lot

OMG. I'm crushing on Dean aka the hawt Jensen Ackles, the not so suave George Michael aka Michael Cera of Arrested Development and Superbad fame, and I'm pretty sure I have a girlcrush on Mary-Louise Parker.

Coupling: Sally and Patrick. I wish there was a season 5 so we could see them get hitched.
There was talk of a season 5, but it looks like it'll never happen :(

Can you picture them as a married couple? If nothing else, we have to see how that whole pregnancy thing might work...

Hmm, I have the urge to go home and watch the episode with the never-ending phone call in it again.

I read somewhere that Steven Moffat talked about what would have happened--supposedly Patrick would be a devoted husband and have no recollection of being such a scoundrel :) I don't remember what Sally's story was going to be...

The never ending phone call is hilarious!

Only show I'm (re)watching at the moment is Babylon 5, so... hmm, I really need some B5 icons.

1. Best dramatic twist Having recently finished watching S3, I'd have to say the explanation from Zathras in "War Without End" as to what the three who are one signifies, and finally learning out what the mystery behind Valen, Sinclair, Delenn and Sheridan was. Three people are actually one just as the three parts of Minbari society are one, and they're also the one who was, the one who is and the one who will be, and one's a descendant of another, and why Minbari and human souls are merging...

2. Laugh-out-loud, piss-in-your-pants funny moment Heh, I've got two. One has to be the breakfast scene from Babylon Squared, where Garibaldi and Sinclair manage to talk a sleepy early-morning Ivanova into dozing off, swap all their breakfast stuff for empty plates and then convince her she's now late for duty... complete with a loud "Garibaldi, you're a dead man!" from offstage when Ivanova's made a frantic call to CIC and realised what's going on.

The second one would have to be when Ivanova and Marcus are looking for more of the First Ones, and Ivanova finds out that Marcus hasn't ever... as in not even once... with a woman anywhere. Marcus announces "somethings showing up on sensors, I think it's a..." and Ivanova's first comment has to be "unicorn?"

3. New fledgling romance or UST couple Zak Allen and Lyta Alexander. OK, there's appeal in watching Ivanova and Talia Winters on screen (what is it about hot women with UST?) but it was the mix of taciturn security guard and damaged telepath that really sucked me in. It's all about Zak finding out she doesn't even have furniture in her quarters and nobody's prepared to talk to the scary telepath, and just turning up on the doorstep with pizza because he thinks she might like some company.

4. Best line(s) everHow many am I allowed?

Captain John Sheridan: Are you trying to cheer me up?
Susan Ivanova: No sir, wouldn't dream of it.
Captain John Sheridan: Good, I hate being cheered up.
Susan Ivanova: In that case we're all going to die slow, agonizing deaths.
Captain John Sheridan: Thank you, I feel so much better now.


Dr. Stephen Franklin: Marcus, this is the kind of conversation that can only end in a gunshot.


Ivanova: Confirmed Survey 1. Upon arrival you will report for debriefing. And just one more thing, on your trip back I want you to take the time to learn the Babylon 5 mantra. Ivanova is always right. I will listen to Ivanova. I will not ignore Ivanova's recommendations. Ivanova is God. And if this ever happens again
Ivanova: Ivanova will personally rip your lungs out! Babylon control out.
[to herself]
Ivanova: Civilians.
[looks up]
Ivanova: Just kidding about that God part. No offense.


Captain John Sheridan: Commander, did you threaten to grab a hold of this man by the collar and throw him out an airlock?
Susan Ivanova: Yes, I did.
Captain John Sheridan: I'm shocked. Shocked and dismayed. I'd remind you we are short on supplies here. We can't afford to take perfectly good clothing and throw it out into space. Always take the jacket off first, I've told you that before.
[to the ISN reporter]
Captain John Sheridan: Sorry, she meant to say stripped naked and thrown out an airlock. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Man, I love this show.

5. Show stopping performances Lots of G'kar moments; particularly the episode where the Narn homeworld falls and this proud and defiant warrior character has to go to the Earth Alliance and request asylum, before giving a final speech to the gathered ambassadors about how tyranny can never triumph.

6. Cameos that rocked your world Walter Koenig as Alfred Bester, the PsiCop you love to hate. He was absolutely superb in this show, and evidently loved appearing on it, especially as such a morally dubious character. Richard York was also excellent as the PTSD-suffering gunner from the Earth/Minbari war, convinced that he was King Arthur...

7. You're not a player, you just crush a lot Hmm... Patricia Tallman as Lyta Alexander, I think ;)
