* In the episode with from July 14, 2011 with Guests Creator/ZooeyDeschanel and Creator/JimCummings Craig devoted his whole show to promoting ''WesternAnimation/{{Winnie the Pooh|2011}}'' with his guests.

** The reveal! My god... the reveal! [[spoiler: In a brilliant take on not one, but THREE classic series finales, we learn that the whole show was just a dream that [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow Nigel Wick]] had one night. He wakes up next to a fat Drew Carey and tells him that not only was he a talk show host, but Drew was a game show host... and skinny. As Mr. Wick goes back to bed, we see a [[Series/StElsewhere snowglobe]] with a figure of Craig, Geoff, and Secretariat on the set while Journey's "[[Series/TheSopranos Don't Stop Believing]]" plays the show out before being abruptly cut. Oh, and Secretariat was Bob Newhart the whole time.]]

* Bill Maher was a guest and made a rather flippant joke about the children supposedly molested by Michael Jackson, saying "there are worse things than being jacked off by a rich pop star." Craig, a father himself (Maher has no children), coldly replied "I don't know about you, but if anyone did that to my kid, I'd kill them." Before Maher could respond, Craig cut to commercial. Maher was conspicuously absent when they returned.

* February 20, 2007: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGLzpt3caHw This monologue]] where Craig talks about his discomfort at making jokes about the personal problems of celebrities like Music/BritneySpears, and goes on to share his own history of substance abuse and near-suicide.

* 2009: Winning a Peabody Award for the interview with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

* October 31, 2011: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sroqmHVueiI The cold-open rendition of "There's A Light"]], accompanied by zombies, go-go dancers, and Sid.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhrXDWRlVOs The War Horse starring Secretariat.]] Our favorite pantomime horse dual wielding machine guns and blasting away with a rocket launcher? Yes please.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=GvAPov24d4Q#! The opening number from the first day of the Scotland shows]]. He's actually singing it.
* July 20, 2012: Following the "Dark Knight Rises" tragedy in Aurora, Colorado earlier that day, Craig and the show decided to pull that night's monologue out of respect for the victims. Instead, of a usual opening, Craig opened that night's show by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIVLi9oIC3k addressing the tragedy.]]
* December 19, 2014: The Finale.
** The opening musical number. It kicks off with the studio recording of Dead Man Fall's "Bang Your Drum" featuring a celebrity-filled roster of people (and puppets) singing along before cutting to the studio midway through for a live rendition of the rest of song, with two drummers, Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, oh a gospel choir for good measure, and Craig standing on his desk rocking out. It's both a [=CMoA=] and a [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment of Heartwarming]]. Even better? Dead Man Fall was a relatively unknown Scottish band. The next day, they ''[[ColbertBump were a top-selling act on iTunes]].''
