The most memorable aspect after all this time had to be the build up to the resolution of the will they or won't they aspect. I think the trilogy/quartet episodes of the late third season (Blonde on Blonde through I am Curious....Maddie) were certainly the episodes every one talked about. Everyone was talking and speculating about that and I loved that at that particular point in time everybody seemed to have Moonlighting fever.
When David rushes to Maddie's house at the end in the rain, and Sam (Mark Harmon) opens the door, the music was so perfect. "Since I Fell For You" sung by Al Jarreau was the perfect ending to the scene.
In fact, that song is the main reason I own the soundtrack album.
I still watch my old VHS tapes of "Moonlighting." I spent hours re-playing them in my head as a teenager. I would videotape the show, and sometimes I recorded the audio simultaneously off of FM radio. I sped from a college visit and ran out of gas trying to make it home in time to see "I Am Curious . . Maddie." I loved "Atomic Shakespeare" and "Camille", and adored "It's A Wonderful Job." I also loved the art-house music and editing on "The Man Who Cried Wife." The soundtrack for that episode was slightly more electronic than orchestral, an unexpected and nice change of pace. I am thrilled to hear about the upcoming DVD release! It's not fair that we can be subjected to a "Growing Pains" reunion movie before we can have our "Moonlighting."

Hmmm....simmecats....sounds supiciously like you and I lead parrallel lives back then. I recorded them, watched them, watched again, and again, and again. Recorded them on tape and listened to them in between classes at school. Guess that's what teenagers do when they obsess. ;D But what an awsome show to obsess over!!! I think I'd have to name my favorites from each season. It's to hard to just have one. I love so many for different reasons. My 1st & 2nd season favs- Pilot The Next Murder You Hear **Brother, Can You Spare a Blonde The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice My Fair David Knowing Her **'Twas the Episode Before Christmas **Every Daughters Father is a Virgin **Witness for the Execution
It's so hard to choose....
~Blue Moon Girl "Now I'll bet you were a Miss March." "A Miss what!"
You all have named some great episodes. So hard to choose. I think I was about 12 when the Sam and Dave episodes aired. Whenever there was a new episode airing some of my friends would come over for a pj party and we would watch moonlighting. Then we would set up way into the night talking about it. Some of my favorite moments were the car scences in To Heiress Human, the jail cell scene in Blonde on Blonde when David begins to admit to himself he is indeed in love with Maddie, of course The Big Bang. Also loved the beginning of the date in Symphony in Knocked Flatt and the rest of the episode was hilarious. So many other great moments but I have rambled long enough.
Although I have forgotten most of the eps in time, I have never forgotten the scene David standing on the table in the office,with pink flowers around his neck singing the limbo song. People doing the limbo dance. That scene stuck in my 10 year old mind for forever. Now that I think of it, actually this might have been the very first ep that I had seen. Hmm... that means I probably have missed the entire season one... hmm... ok. I'm confused now
Anyway, that's one of my all time fav scenes. He is so cute and cheesy, gotta love the way he moves.
Also the other dance scene in the club in Big Man on Mulberry Street...
Then, Maddie singing Blue Moon in black and white....
It's interesting though, how I have never come to forget the scenes which included singing and dancing.
