7. Show: The Office
Song: Chris Brown, “Forever”
After six seasons of building up Jim and Pam’s relationship, it was hard to imagine how they would pull of the wedding episode. The episode built up to the big moment with calamity after calamity, pushing Pam to her breaking point. When the big moment finally happened, Michael Scott did exactly what you’d expect him to do: organize a YouTube dance to “Forever.” While fun and silly, it was paired with Jim and Pam’s secret wedding that made the whole moment feel sweet. It was also at the point that we started seeing Scott’s softer side more often, which made the moment feel genuine.
8. Show: Six Feet Under
Song: Death Cab For Cutie, “Transatlanticism”
It’s safe to say that most memorable scene from this show was Claire driving to New York and witnessing the future flash before her (and our) eyes. Sia’s “Breathe Me” yanked the tears out of anyone watching. But in season four, something special happened. After taking drugs with her friends (cue the Can’t Hardly Wait reunion with Peter Facinelli), Claire paints on her wall as Death Cab For A Cutie’s “Transatlanticim” plays on the stereo. The friends unexpectedly turn the moment into a drug-induced sing-along. Sadly, the moment is cut short by editing. :(
