I, for one, was a soon-to-be-15-year-old on March 11, 1986, and I screamed my big-haired teenaged head off when it happened! Once the episode ended, I called my 22-year-old cousin and we screamed together! ;D

I was 12. I was pretty surprised. Next day in school, my friend Cindy was absolutely flabbergasted. "Did you see that? Did you see it?" I mean, her jaw just dropped. Most of my friends had similar reactions. This meant the show was getting a lot more serious, and going in a new direction.

I loved it!! But, at the same time, kind of annoyed that they denied what happened. Was, and still is, one of my favorites!! Great episode, and even better scene. You can feel their intensity through the screen. Now I wanna go watch
I think I held my breath during the garage scene. Very intense! I remember being so disappointed at the end and thinking why doesn't one of them just grab the other one and kiss again ;D I remember talking about the show the next day with my friends at school, I think they pretty much had the same reaction I did.

I still remember that me and my friend freaked out about it and couldn´t talk about another thing the next day. But we both were really sad that both of them denied that it was meaningful at the end of the episode. I just thought: Darn, they should be togetheter, why can´t they just be together?!
I was startled and absolutely delighted--and a little embarrassed, because my parents were in the room! And now it's 20 years later, and I'm still startled and delighted by it, though not embarrassed anymore. Now I just think it's very intense and just hot. Wow!
David and Maddie became a part of me from the first time that I saw them dance together in the pilot. From that moment on, I felt the sting of every harsh word, the hunger of every single kiss, the sexual tension in between kisses and the deep longing that they felt for each other. I felt like I lived every frame with them.
I was a junior in high school when this episode aired for the first time. I can still remember when they began to embrace and say their goodbyes in the garage. I remember being lost in the moment as my heart beat faster and tears ran down my face. I was there with them. I didn't want that moment to end...EVER.
Then, Maddie told David that he smelled and he pulled away from their embrace. My heart was cut so deep that I thought it might break. I wanted to take him in my arms and hold him forever. Then, she chased him and they started to kiss...really kiss; not like the other kisses from the dream sequences but a REAL kiss. It was in that moment that I felt as though I was standing right there and witnessing this tender moment in person.
It's hard to put into words but David and Maddie were much more than characters on a screen; they were truly a part of me...and still are. Even now, my eyes fill with tears and I still hold my breath when I rewatch this episode. David and Maddie were the only good love that came into my life during those years and I lived for Tuesday nights.
I thank God that he gave Glenn Caron the words, Bruce and Cybill the talent, and me the time to experience it all...over and over again. It is as real now to me as it was then.

Wow...well said, gioia. I felt/feel the same way. AFTER the kiss was just as remarkable, the way D/M were looking at each other as he backed away. They said their final goodbyes and it was almost like you could SEE a line connecting their hearts. Such a fantastic scene.
"Lady gets in trouble, it's nice to know she has somebody to call"
I think I was 15 when I first saw this episode. And from the moment the episode was about David running away from the police etc. I knew they were going to kiss but I had no idea it is going to be the hottest kiss in the history of tv The reruns were showed the next day, very early in the morning but I HAD TO get up and watch it again even though it was in the middle of the summer holidays and the average hour of me getting up was *a lot* later ;D
When I was rewatching it in the morning I remember my sister walking into the room just when D&M were about to kiss. She started yelling at me for waking her up but then she looked at the tv and saw D&M kissing. She just said "Oh." and left the room.
I just saw it. Wow. I thought they first kissed in that episode towards the end of Season 3. I didn't know they did it in Season 2. "You smell awful...hey come here, I didn't mean it."
I liked this episode as it was more serious, but then return with a bit of the funny when David is telling her he's broke, then she hugs him and pushes him on the floor. "Does this mean you'll give me the money."
I don't think I've ever seen David this vulnerable. He was crying, thinking he killed the old guy. Then worried about having to go on the run and eventually doing it. Kissing Maddie, because he thinks he'll never get to see her again.
Then, like a little kid, telling Maddie, who he loves and who is also his best friend, the adventure he had being on the run, essentially being homeless, and can he have some money to continue getting by and living on the run.
And Cybill did an AMAZING job in this episode. All her emotions and reactions were realistic and fitting with the situation.
