I love Maddie when she hugs David so hard at the end of 'Witness' that she knocks him off the bed...
I like that he's all wet, dirty, and unshaven, and she doesn't even care.
It's not a scene, but I really dislike Maddie's perm in season 5. It's distracting. This is as close as I get to disliking something about Maddie. I can't think of anything else I dislike about her.
I like the scene in "And the Flesh Was Made Word" where Maddie and David are reading the guy's journal entries about the mystery woman. I like it because Maddie is trying to read the meaning behind the man's words AND she's trying to read David. She's carefully analyzing every expression the man has written AND she's also trying to make David talk. She asks him "You think something is wrong with this man?" David says "No, he's fine." And then she gets to the point and asks David: "Are you fine?" He dodges the question twice, but she tries one more time. She says: "I know some of this [the writing] is stupid, but I just thought it was romantic - you and I, here, reading this together. I thought it was nice." She clearly wants to make him talk and the way she does it is so Maddie. I think she knew he wouldn't, but she's still crushed when he doesn't open up.
It's not a like or dislike, but it breaks my heart to see how tired Maddie/Cybill looks in some season 4 episodes, all bags under eyes, swollen face, and the look of someone who might throw up any minute. Cybill said she was sick as a dog during the pregnancy and it really shows. Just looking at her face when she's filmed in close-up makes me feel almost as queasy as she must have felt at the time.

Alright, coming late to this party, but what the hell:
I LOVE Maddie during the night stakeout scene in 'Read the Mind, See the Movie' - love how she's letting David teach her everything, love her funny lines 'you missed the house' 'can't we use the pipe?' and sweet 'you wanna try again? You can hold me this time.'
I LOVE Maddie when she wakes up with an anxious / excited smile on her face in anticipation of seeing David at the beginning of The Son Also Rises.
I LOVE how much Maddie wants to help David in Witness for the Execution. The look of concern she has for him before she has to open the door for the police is just the best.
I HATE Maddie when she tells David "It's not yours." I HATE Maddie when she says 'David, I'm married."
I LOVE David when he has Maddie pinned up against the door in My Fair David while they're making the bet - how he both reels her in to make her happy and annoys her at the same time.
I LOVE how hard David tries to figure out what is going to make Maddie happy and convince her to keep dating him in A Trip To The Moon "Just tell me what to do and I will do it!" "I love you, let's keep trying" "I don't get any better than when I'm with you and I don't think you get any better than when you're with me."
I HATE David when he's willing to leave Maddie for Jillian in Knowing Her - accusing her of just being jealous when she's trying to help him see Jillian is no good (where did his love for Maddie go there?)
I HATE David when he tells Maddie to 'Get out of his bed..." in WGC
I HATE David's whole general attitude towards Maddie in Season 5
