    Just curious to see what scene everyone thinks has the best physical comedy.
    For me it was the “Modern Family” episode “See you Next Fall”. Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen falling down the hill was hilarious.

    The Valentine’s Day episode of Frasier with Niles alone in Frasier’s apartment awaiting his date is one of the absolute best instances of physical comedy.

    I would have to say that it would be episode titled “Journey To The Center of Attention” from  The Golden Girls.  This is the episode in which Blanche brings Dororthy to The Rusty Anchor for nickel beer night.  Later in the episode, Blanche gets on the piano and sings I Wanna Be Loved By You.  This episode was hilarious and this would have been an outstanding submission for Rue McClanahan if she had been nominated.

    Totally agree with that. My favorite line from that episode:

    Blanche: “Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”
    *Man takes out gun*

    Is this the one where he’s trying to iron his shirt, and he cuts himself, and keeps fainting at the sight of his own blood? If so, that was genius.

    Soap – the episode where all the guys are at a bar drinking. Bob (the
    dummy), is “drunk.” He makes a motion as if he’s ready to vomit, and all
    the human characters react, as if he were real… jumping back, to
    avoid getting barfed on by a wooden puppet.  Bob “passes out,” and they
    all get up to leave, leaving Bob “out cold” at the table, with his
    little legs dangling and swinging over the edge.  This show had so many
    examples of great physical comedy…  Bart being invisible…  Jodie
    hiding Bob in the refrigerator…. Bob’s mind-reading trick.  What a
    great series that was.

    Some of my favourite physical comedy scenes were in Moonlitghing

    – One scene is when David, Maggie, the lady with the iron mask chase the guy who pretend being the iron masked women in the airpor
    – Another is when Miss Topisto, her mother and Mr Viola are chasing by the assesins…

    So you can see, i love a good persecution 🙂

    On the episode of The Office, “The Injury” when Dwight goes to get Michael. He gets out of the car, vomits all over the rear window, gets back in the car, and drives away. Also, the cold opening for “Stress Relief” was hilarious.

    Not the best out there, but certainly an honorable mention:

    Hot in Cleveland – Wendie Malick – “Good Luck Faking the Goiter”

    Eva Longoria masters physical comedy well enough. Same goes for Teri Hatcher. 

    The See You Next Fall episode of Modern Family contains a lot of physical comedy. And they did that very well.

    I’ll give another vote to David Hyde Pierce in that Valentine’s Day episode of “Frasier”.  That was pure genius.  I am quite confident that he won the Emmy that season for just that one scene.

    It’s a clear winner for me. Debra Messing in “Das Boob” (Will & Grace). How she lost that Emmy I don’t know.
