A Game of Thrones Community
Sunday 9:00 PM on HBO

Warning: This post contains spoilers from Sunday's Game of Thrones finale as well as Veep's Season 3 capper. Read at your own risk!


Tywin's fate at the end of Game of Thrones' Season 4 finale was pretty crappy, but it was far from the first time a toilet took center stage on TV.

Since making its television debut in 1957, the toilet has played countless important roles on everything from Sex and the City to The Sopranos to Golden Girls. Sometimes the toilet has aided in a key dramatic moment (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad), while other times it was used for simple shits and giggles (The League).

Want to look back on the most iconic TV bowel mo(ve)ments off all time? Urine luck! All you need to do is keep reading:

Really!? Really!? You don't have THE most iconic toilet moment of all? From All in the Family, Archie Bunker and the first ever sound of a flushing toilet. Yeah, they didn't show the bathroom but the flushing was iconic and became a symbol for Archie when he became dis-grunt-aled.

What about the time in Lethal Weapon 2 where Riggs and Murtaugh have to deal with the "toilet bomb"?

Ironically, Game of Thrones wins even in this category. When you thought you'd seen everything, they pull a scene in 'that" kind of throne.

Where's the atomic flush from Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide?

Since these aren't necessarily iconic like the title may suggest, The Simpsons S05E15 "Deep Space Homer", the Simpsons' impression of Married With Children. Episodes also has a couple of good ones with Merc Lapidus.

I just read recently that Kit Harington is a descendant of the man who supposedly invented the flush toilet. There you go, another GoT-toilet connection.

On nearly any screen, the spoiler warning is visible as the page comes up, while the GoT bit is not. Quitcherbitchin.

16b. The Boss

Kelsey Grammer (as Tom Kane) had a similar scene to Malvo's on an episode of The Boss a couple years ago. I forget if we saw Kelsey sitting there and staring at the guy; I think at the least we saw part of him (his leg) as he dropped pants and sat there.

The gist of it was, someone came in to talk to him that he was angry at. So mid-sentence he walked into the bathroom and started taking a dump. Then walked out around the time the guy was done talking and shook him hand.

The kicker being he didn't wash his hands before shaking the guy's hands. A total F.U. moment.
