    OK, so we have many threads asking what peoples favourite challenges or presenters are but I thought that it might be interesting to find out what peoples favourite moments are.

    I would have to say that I have 3.
    1. Richard Hammond returning to the show after the Jet Car crash.
    2. Richard and James breaking the Lamborghini Christmas decorations the Jeremy wanted.
    3. Jeremy's reaction to beating 10min at the Nurburg Ring in the Jaguar.

    There are many more but they are the ones that I loved the most.

    What are other peoples favourites?

    Hammond stamping on the Lamborghini baubles was one of the funniest moments on TG. I almost passed water laughing at that.

    Cant say really, but moments that come to mind are bits from the limo episode, Hammond returning and bits from the USA episode.

    Hammond and Clarkson waiting for James May to get around the track in his Cadillac in the American special - especially when Hammond says 'I'll just hold this pebble, and we'll know how long it's taken James as the wind erodes it.'

    And of course Oliver... who could forget?!

    oh how to possibly decide? esp as I haven't seen any in an age

    reading the above however I agree sabine overtaking (and her reaction) at the nurburgring is top. as is the james on the throne part of the polar special. james's little monologue when he's about to drive into the wall in the 100 quid car challenge (about being about to die and having had a good life and having met stephen fry and all that). also when hammond ate the results card in the 05 awards after jeremy overruled the result. all I can remember at the mo.

    When was that? I must have missed that episode. Anything which makes Jeremy unhappy is great in my book. I didn't see Stig beating up award people either. I have missed out on SO much!

    My faves:

    1. Mini ski jump
    2. Richard is hypnotised into forgetting how to drive.
    3. James gets beaten by BMX riders in a Fiat 500.
    4. Ellen Macarthur as the fastest star in a rp car
    5. Jeremy losing to Germans (in any form)
    6. The boys cause a traffic jam while caravanning the first time.
    7. Kristen Scott Thomas dissess Jeremy's favourite car
    8. The boys see the best comb over in the world in Africa
    9. The Vietnam special
    10. Fat Stig/African Stig/the stig IS Michael Schumaker!

    Oh, there are so many of them that it would actually be quite difficult to name them all, so I'll just settle with the very best


    1. Hammond in love with Oliver (this special is also one of the best of TG like ever IMHO) and Clarckson for once speechless when Oliver is back on track after that unlucky river crossing
    2. Sabine overtaking posers in a VAN LOL
    3. Clarckson learning to drive a scooter in Vietnam
    4. trying to drive the super cars out of underground parking in Paris
    5. rednecks in USA episode and Jeremy bringing that dead cow on his car Cool LOL
    6. and of cause Jeremy driving that smallest car right into the office

    Wow, so many to choose from...


    1) The Bolivia special - Richard in hyper mode after eating the coca leaves


    2) Bolivia special - the bit with the oxygen shortage, seeing them forgo the "leave the fallen behind" and slowing down so Richard can keep up


    3) Oliver, definitely


    4) Richard's return


    5) Anytime James laughs hard


    6) In the 11th season, when James is doing the "Good news!" bits about the Dacia Sandera and Jeremy responds with an enthusiastic "What?". James cracking up is hilarious


    7) "Fun with seat heaters"


    Jeremy sneaking the word 'badge' past the censors and Richard's reaction when he realizes what Jeremy was actually saying (post news S10/EP03)

    I just have to say thank god for BBC america. THere is no other Top Gear to me. They can make all the spinoffs they want, but to me this is the only Top Gear.

    I've only seen some episodes, so the list might change and in no particular order.

    1. Stacking James's broken piano on top of a pile of porn mags in the lorry challenge.

    2. James's choice of police siren and the guys 'cleaning up the highway'. Jeremy: "we've got a live one!"

    3. THe Jag as a train ep with Jeremy's 'creation' Scum class - laughed so hard I had to catch my breath.

    4. Toyota Hilux survived over an imploded building.

    5. Mid East special where Hammond was all alone on the airfield and had to race to the shed while the others were still in the plane.

    6. southeast US ep where Jeremy had that cow on the roof and vandalizing James's ac. Hilarious 'art decoration' on each other's cars. But a big smh moment at the rednecks. [Sad that they were safer in the mid east than in the south east of the US].

    7. Hammond smashing into the fastest car lap board because he couldn't reach the top.

    8. Stig falling asleep on the roller coaster and turning on the lights in the economy episode.

    9. The interceptor opening sequence [specifically Hammond kicking a woman in the crotch] and Jeremy getting 'touched' while being fitted into the lotus
