Most memorable game show moments? Ever?

Taking a break from the typical Game Show Network News only, an article here talks about the 10 best game show moments of all time, all different networks and around the world.
My personal favorite

10: Match Game-Sammy the Songwriter
9: Family Fortunes- A Type of Bean
8: Merv Griffin's Crosswords-Letters of Discharge
7: Who Wants to be a Millionaire-John Carpenter Phones a Friend
6: Card Sharks- Thanks, Bill
5: Jeopardy! Tool Time
4: Wheel of Fortune- Final Spin
3. Double Dare- Egg on My Shoe and A Song In My Heart
2: Press Your Luck: Michael Larson's victory
1: Super Password- It's Rude to Laugh

Only one from overseas, number 9, with all the others from the United States. Six from pre-2000, then #4, #5 and #7 from the previous decade. (Man, even Millionaire is looking old now)

A lot of these aren't too funny, and the audience over-reacts mainly because they are there. #9, #8 and #3 in my opinion are more unheard of than anything that's happened on more world-renown Jeopardy!, Password and Wheel of Fortune.

Did not expect to see any GSN show here, but some of the best ones are the Catch 21 $50K win and the biggest GSN win in history up until 2011.

Oh, and the article does have one GSN mention. Apparently GSN airs classics Saturday mornings.
