Interested to hear what people’s personal picks are.
For me there is no competition:
“This is MY story! You don’t even have a f*cking daughter!”
“Neither do you Sally.”

“Who has ever looked after you in this f*cking family?” – Tom Wambsgans to Greg Hirsch, in ”All the Bells Say”, Succession.
There’s something so composite and multilayered about this one line. Knowing the show, there are quite a few characters who could say this to one another and for a variety of different purposes and contexts, depending on the situations and subplots everyone is oscillating between all season. But there’s something extra profound and nuanced about Tom being the person being the one to say it and Greg being the one to hear it. It matters in that moment what Tom is trying to coerce Greg into doing and the implication that Tom is the only one who genuinely cares for Greg despite the way he continuously mistreats him, as well. Tom even says to him in the next few sentences that his stature in the workplace would only slightly improve upon joining Tom’s side. You could almost say Tom’s question to Greg is like he’s practically asking himself and then deciding to act accordingly to better serve his interests. I love how there’s zero throwaway lines in this show and every word is intentional and impactful, but I find this one so fascinating and Matthew Macfadyen’s ice-cold delivery of it makes it all the more captivating.

Three if you add the kicker: “You must be Ava.” Lol
Totally. I of course understand why they submitted the Pilot for writing with Brunson credited as the lead writer, but Desking is really my favorite episode. Hats off to lead writer of that episode Morgan Murphy, though I’m guessing that whole brilliant scene was collaboratively written. And then every member of the ensemble pulled it off to perfection. I can’t find a video link to the scene for some reason?August 2, 2022 at 6:43 am #1205032413

I decided to do 4 honourable mentions just for fun.

– The White Lotus (“The Lotus Eaters”)
“So that’s it? We’re not gonna talk anymore? I won’t see you?”
“Oh you’ll see me. In court.”
– Hacks (“The One, The Only”)
