First episode, Vanessa bought a craw fish from the supermarket, with the money that should be bought into designing clothes.
Anything related to Morgan, thank goodness for her runway walk.
Special mention to Episode 5's wedding challenge, where Morgan is paired with Jay. Hilarity Ensues.
Morgan: Jay's gonna be my bitch.
Jay: (in the Confession Cam, after getting every-single-one of Morgan's suggestions) Morgan just bangs into the room and and she's all "ARGHH ARGHH".
Jay: (talking to Kevin) And she's all "I want sheer...". A sheer wedding dress. 'Cause I know there're gonna be princesses in this group, like, vails, valses and poof, and then comes Morgan [ Sound Effect Bleep ] her nipples showing up in her wedding gown. I'm gonna go home this week, because Morgan is sabotaging me~
Jay: (over the phone with Morgan) Morgan!
Morgan: Hello? JAY!!
Jay: Listen (gets interrupted by Morgan ranting nonstop about sequins) Nonono, let me explain... (Morgan keeps ranting) It's not gonna be like... (Morgan keeps ranting)
Jay: Morgan I ta- (Morgan keeps ranting) Morgan... Morgan. MORGAN!! Morgan, let me talk.
Jay: I found myself getting caught up in the emotional rant of Morgan. Rather it'd just being fun, but now I'm getting worried. (cut seconds later with Jay venting to Kara Saun) And now the biggest day of her life, I'm the one sewing the [ Sound Effect Bleep ] dress for it! ARRGHH!! I'm gonna die!! I hate this! I hate this project!! (Beat) So, now that I'm thinking, I kinda want to sabotage her. Nah, if I was doing that I would make what Nora is making. I mean like "Morgan, I covered your dress in roses".
Austin wearing Jay's postal uniform outfit...
For the last challenge, everyone gets shocked after Wendy makes it to the Final 3 instead of Austin. Jay has this to say:
Jay: (in the Confession Cam) She [Wendy] just had that face, and you think... For the last challenge, Wendy, you could've put lipstick on. That's the first think I thought.
The entire story of Tim Gunn and Andrae having a fight in the middle of a Red Lobster while on a date. Even funnier when Tim then confronted him about it, and being a good sport, laughed along with it.
The episode's outtakesnote (once available on Bravo's website, but sadly lost when the show jumped networks) revealed that this was actually the second time Tim confronted Santino about his impressions: the first time, Santino wasn't wearing a microphone — and there weren't enough witnesses.
Tim: Santino, I'd like to discuss these "impressions" you've been doing of me.
(Tim motions for the camera to follow him to Santino's work station.)
Santino:(to cameraman) No, you don't want to see this.
Tim: Yes he does.
Andrae's reaction to the whole incident: "Is there anyone out there like Santino? In the world? I don't think so. And if there is, don't call me, please. Because one is enough."
Season 2, Episode 7: When Emmett walks out in a neon pink skating outfit.
Andrae's 9 minute 50 second crying jag on the runway. It's all in the reactions: some of the models and designers are crying, too...and then you get to Santino, who has barely contained church giggles, and then as we hit the 5 minute mark more and more people just looking bored and hoping for a break in the crying so they can move on.
During the "Social Scene" challenge, Tim and Lupe discuss her design:
Tim: Did you feel that your elimination was fair? Even thought Marla had plagerized a dress Nicky Hilton had worn before?
Guadalupe: Honestly, I can only give him a personal critique. Nobody would never know unless they personally respond to me. Would know what my personal response is. And that is of me, and personally I believe you can, like, push the boundries, and like Johnny Cash, "Walk the line and..."
Heidi: This is so confusing. What was the question?
Tim: I haven't a clue any longer!!
Heidi: What was the question about?
Tim: Did you feel your elimination was fair, given that Marla plagerized a Nicky Hilton dress? Yes or No.
Guadalupe: Understand that Marla... has... an aesthetic that I... cannot... d-duppplicate. But Marla has an aesthetic that she cannot duplicate. And, Arianne, in national television, if can get this, you f*n' rock, 'cause you believe in what is true.
What made it funnier were the intercuts with everybody's faces. Zulema and Santino are laughing their asses off, Marla looks amused besides Guadalupe and all the others are confused.
The "Andrae Montage".
Chloe and Kara are talking aout Andrae in the bathroom. Chloe starts to roll against the walls Andrae-style, while Kara immitates his accent, and then blows the hair dryer against her hair while yelling "I'm Andrae, baby!!"
Tim:(takes off his glasses and laughs) I really am an old fart. My old brain didn’t even go there.
And then, as Tim leaves the workroom, Steven asks him if he's coming back at 4; Tim replies, "I just may. After I’ve made my bad 3 o’clock decision."
Season 5 finale. Guest judge Jennifer Lopez is not available due to a foot injury. So the new 4th judge is none other than...Tim Gunn! Yes, the same Tim Gunn that Kenley Collins had been rude to all season long. Oops! Needless to say, Kenley did not win! Nice girl Leanne won. Nice woman Korto got a very close 2nd place.
The drag queens during the initial selection and during the actual runway and judging.
In Season 7, the Odd Couple pairing of Anthony Williams and Seth Aaron Henderson for a team challenge was pretty much an episode-long CMoF, a highlight being when Anthony chided Seth Aaron to "Stop acting up in front of company" during their consultation with Tim Gunn. A few moments can be seen here.
Season 8, Episode 11: Ivy begins harassing Michael Costello, accusing him of cheating, and ends her voiceover/interview by warning him that karma will get him. Cut to a scene of Ivy nearly getting hit in the eye by a flying needle. Also counts as a Crowning Moment of Awesome for the editing staff.
In "Sew '70s," Rich Bitch Laura Kathleen goes on an extended rant about how Nina doesn't understand her taste and style. The editors cut to Viktor Luna looking up from his sewing machine with the most priceless look of disbelief.
Michael Kors' horrified scream upon seeing the back of Josh M's first look in "Sew '70s," made even funnier by the shots of Anthony Ryan and Viktor struggling to hold down giggle fits as Kors lights into the outfit.
Even funnier is that if you listen closely you can actually hear Joshua tell his model "Don't turn around" when Michael asks her to.
Also the shot of Michael Kors gearing up to ream the outfit as Josh introduces it. And Bert's "dear God" facial expression when Josh claims his outfit captures the joy and exuberance of the '70s. And Josh's pissy "ahem" as Viktor(?)'s giggles start to get the better of him. And best of all, the fact that this is all happening to the biggest Jerkass in the cast.
"He is a one-way monkey. No, no... I meant to say one-trick pony."
Tim Gunn describing Ven's first look in the print challenge as being "a homage to a menstrual cycle" while the other designers try (and fail) to pretend they're not listening. Of special note is Elena's face◊ and Christopher's◊ Facepalm.
Michael Kors saying that "Origami Rose" would be a great name for Ven if he were a Drag Queen.
Episode 11 of Season 10 is generally considered ridiculous in premise and pretty weak, but was salvaged by some hilarious reactions from the designers when having to work with both real babies and baby dolls that actually cry.
Dmitry being woken up in the morning and deadpanly declaring "Oh right, I'm a father now." And later announcing that he barely had time to put on pants in the morning.
Elena naming her baby "Asshole" and her horrified reaction upon waking up to the baby's cries. And while in Mood, asking Swatch (the store's resident Canine Companion) if he can be her baby instead.
The fact that Fabio is the only one who has any clue whatsoever what he's doing, and gets so into it that Dmitry has to remind him that it's not a real baby.
Tim's expression at the cheer that erupts from all the designers when he announces that he'll be taking their "babies" to "daycare" (i.e. letting them actually get some work done without having to worry about them) due to the sheer level of joy they have.
Elena gets hot glue on her thigh during the unconventional materials challenge. In the confessional, Christopher begins to sound sympathetic towards her... and then asks "But why were you wearing hoochie shorts to work?!"
We wanted to punch Zac when he sniffed “First day of design school, we had to make a shirt.” Oh really? DID YOU HAVE TO MAKE THREE OF THEM? FOR GORILLAS? WITH A CAMERA CREW ON YOUR ASS?
In the first episode, Justin says that if arguments in the workroom get too bad he can just turn his hearing aid off and tune them out. Cue episode two, where in the middle of Sandro and Ken going at each other the camera cuts to Justin doing just that.
Sandro refers to Timothy, who refuses to use electricity to make his garments because "it's not eco friendly" as "Amish."
In the same episode, asks if anyone has a straight pin, because "I need to sew my hookers."note presumably he meant hooks
