We're gearing up for another best-of episode! Tell us which scenes are your favorites. Obviously no scenes from the last two. Please give us the episode number and the time code of the scene if you can. Thanks!

Can we choose from all I4H episodes or just ones that have aired after the last best of?

The Big Brother Program sketch (in which Wengert gets increasingly ridiculous phone calls from people wondering where he is--first a kid from the big brother program, leading up to a mail-order bride) is one of the best things ever.

Other recent ones that spring to mind (and there's so many that I can't even think straight) are:
-Carnival Game (feat. Todd glass trying to throw a ball in a bucket)
-Bee Car
-Bonobo Incest
-Tom Petty Concert
-Fair Weather Fans
-Dire Elephant (although that one might not work out of context--it needs the momentum of Zach Woods getting thrown under the bus for 3 sketches in a row)
-Lauren Lapkus Butt Play
-Gamer/BleepBlorp5000

I think the most egregious omissions from the first two are:

-Pharmacy Terrorism
-Dodi Fayed Restaurant Sketch
-Belly Button Prostitute (featuring Karate Joe)
-Jack and Jill

Oh that's tough...

Gamer in the future from episode 82. About 39 minutes in.

Teenage Jesus from ep 66 about 34 minutes in.

Psychedelic Sign Twirling ep 79 about 22 minutes in.

Buying porn ep 67 about 22 minutes in.


That scratches the surface. I'll post when I remember more.

I have a feeling at least one from the upcoming episode 92 will have a place in there. You guys are in for it...

The impression at 52:20 is perhaps the funniest thing I've heard on the show. I've heard the clip before and have been thoroughly embarrassed by it because I also agree. You guys helped me laugh, which is wonderful. But completely apart from that, this is one of the funniest, most clever clips on this show. Between the impression and Seth's throwaway, callback lines, I put my vote in for this to be a Best Of...

This is a copy and paste from me. I can't stop listening to Mookie. This is a top tenner in my life.

The audition scene from episode 67 starting at 7:45, Tom Petty scene from episode 85 starting at 45:24, and the yellow jacket scene from episode 83 starting at 22:18.

Edit: I also wholeheartedly agree with Maerlyn on the ski lodge scene from 75.

I loved the 'Fill Your Butt With Air' scene from (I think) episode 69, with Tim Meadows, Horatio Sanz and Sean Conroy.

I DEFINITELY think the royal baby scene from Episode 92 needs to be included.

Although it might miss the context of bringing back Dead Man's Rock. That's why doing a best off can be so hard as you don't get the build up of multiple assplay references, everyone making Zach Woods play himself or every sketch coming back to the guy in the coma in episode 63.

Anyway I'll also nominate Fair Weather Fans from 88.5 (it's only one scene so you won't need a timecode)

Also this isn't a very helpful nomination, but something from the Michelle Shocked episode should go in, maybe just from when the crowd reactions start to feel like they're all doing a bit.

I think Pineapple scene from Dead Man's Rock (92) is incredible. Just got to listen. Definitely best of material. 1:04:45
