I’m sure there’s a million of them, but I just watched (for the millionth time) the epsisode of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air where Hillary drops out of school, and Will and Carlton find out. The funniest scene is when the Banks family is sitting around the dinner table. Will has Hillary bark like a dog when someone says her name, and give him a compliment when her dad takes a drink. Meanwhile, Carlton has Hillary insult will when he taps his glass with a spoon, and whack Will upside the head when Carlton clears his throat.
I die laughing everytime I see that!
What sitcom scene ranks as your #1? I’m not talking about one-liners ala The Simpsons. I’m talking about well crafted build-ups to a brilliantly comedic scene.
