Witty banter is my favorite TV genre. Fucked up families is a close second.
  1. Rory and Lorelai
    7a1fe289 46cd 497f a0b1 757e40d40f2b
    The gold standard. 80-page scripts for an hour long show. Unheard of. The perfect combination of pop culture and zingers.
  2. Buffy and...anyone
    Ddf12bf7 9e6e 4834 9b08 14fbc35928ac
    All hail Joss and his ability to turn verbs into nouns and create a whole new teen language.
  3. Josh Lyman and Donna Moss
    916e64ef bdc1 4dbb 951d d37dfeed3334
    The longest, sexiest, wordiest courtship of all time.
  4. Veronica and Logan
    A6f4efa4 451f 4ca1 9da2 756232e60618
    Hate, love, hate, love. I'm surprised they managed to find time to make out with all the banter they exchanged. Hint: If you loved Veronica Mars, you'll totally dig iZombie.
  5. Bunheads (Sutton Foster and any of her little ballet students)
    05318a06 beb5 46f8 8c88 9848d28ce49f
  6. Lindsay and Sam Weir
    18bed7f4 622f 431f bf8e e7dc799a33a8
    My favorite TV siblings.
  7. Jack (Amanda Peet) & Jill (Ivan Sergei)
    19648f42 8156 4785 8eda 5c5390e31aca
    Oh how I loved this show. The entire cast was just so amazingly zinger-filled--especially Sarah Paulson.
  8. Xander and Cordelia
    E3dbcff1 c541 40af a84c 2a278cf0c9c2
    A writing teacher once told me that the best scenes involve 2 people who couldn't be more different. Hence the perfection of Xander and Cordelia. (Until they started dating, which was weird.)
  9. Joey and Pacey
    4b134e3a 31ce 4eb6 bf5c 7aabbb11d4a9
    Come on.
  10. Monica and Rachel
    0f1f3b93 ddc6 4a04 9f02 388adef4d6b2
    I love it when they fight.
  11. Will and Grace
    72384201 c327 4f49 863a 35cfe73fa7a0
    Aka my BFF Seth and me. Honorable mention: Karen and Rosario.
  12. Dan Rydell and Casey McCall
    Bb2297b1 ffd9 4555 ab7c c61395553509
    The perfect Sports Night duo.
  13. Mal and Wash
    10125b3d 3bb7 4651 9d0b c077984a9516
    The entire crew of the Serenity had the best vocab in the galaxy.
