Who doesn’t love a good, iconic line reading? We all have those moments of witnessing an actor deliver a line that you know from the instant you see and hear it is destined for immortality. It sears itself onto your consciousness, endorphins flooding your system as you bounce up and down in your seat with joy from the experience of seeing someone bring a script and character to life in such a delicious way. Social media pondered this issue the other day, when Twitter user @charlesjensen posted the following prompt:

There’s about a billion Golden Age Simpsons moments that popped into my head in response immediately—‘No, he said, ‘What’s that rattle?’!’—but aside from those the main thing I could think of was It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. This modern classic is an absolute embarrassment of riches when it comes to memorable, iconic line readings, with Dee, Mac, Charlie, and Frank all providing us with a bounty of treasures. An ensemble show through and through, Sunny’s rich group chemistry is what makes it sing, yet if pushed I would still have to say that it’s Glenn Howerton’s Dennis that has provided some of its most legendary moments. I still fully intend to write the epic-length tribute that that performance deserves, whenever I actually manage to find the time. In the meantime, however, I’ll settle for the shoutouts Howerton gets in the replies to the above Twitter prompt.

(Note: I’m only including Twitter videos, gifs, or images, because it ain’t no fun clicking through to YouTube vids each time.)
