1''Beavis and Butt-Head'' has some moments that are cool.'''As a Moments subpage, all spoilers are unmarked [[Administrivia/SpoilersOff as per policy.]] Administrivia/YouHaveBeenWarned.'''* Cornholio. Full Stop.* Beavis's [[ "We're never gonna score!" breakdown]] in TheMovie comes to mind.* Their [[ collaboration]] with Music/{{Cher}} was the stuff of legends.* The episode "Mr. Anderson's Balls", in which the boys go around a golf course, sneaking around and stealing golf balls (mainly Mr. Anderson's), and later selling them to the golf players (including Anderson himself), and they actually pull it off without a hitch. Normally, Beavis and Butt-Head are a pair of dim-witted morons with a one digit IQ, so to see one of their money-making schemes actually work to perfection was quite stunning.** And they sell them cheaper than the ones in the sports shop, effectively stealing the shop's customers and making some good money.* In one episode, Beavis and Butt-Head are given a dollar by a girl on the condition that they leave her alone. They attempt to buy a gallon of gas with it, only to be told by the [[NiceGuy surprisingly patient and helpful gas station clerk]] that they could use their dollar to buy a lottery ticket. They end up winning $500... and use it to buy a lawnmower and gas for said lawnmower. Then they take it for a joyride, ram it through the wall of their school, and use it to mow the anarchy symbol into the school lawn.* Tom Anderson gets one of his own after his neighbor threatens to sue him after Anderson's steamroller damaged his hedge, thanks to Beavis and Butt-Head in "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Steamroller]]".-->'''Bill:''' You're gonna pay for this, Anderson!\'''Tom Anderson:''' Like hell I am. You're the one who told me to rent from Morgan's. Now get the hell out of my property you son of a bitch! ''[punches his neighbor, who falls to the ground]'' And if I ever see that damn dog of yours peeing on my yard again, I'm gonna shoot both of you!** Not to mention the scene where the duo rams a steamroller into Coach Buzzcut through a wall in the same episode.* In the episode "The Trial," Beavis and Butt-Head are on trial for egging Mr. Anderson's house, and defend themselves about as well as you'd expect...until Butt-Head is inspired by a thought-bubble of a celebrity he saw on TV, advising him to "Use the Force." Under the influence of this outside inspiration, Butt-Head promptly has x seconds of badassery, with authoritative take-charge voice included:-->'''Butt-Head:''' "Sir, so for all you know, it could have been--" ''[Points at Stewart, in the audience]'' "--HIM who threw rotten eggs at your window!"-->'''Tom Anderson:''' "Well, all you kids DO look a lot alike..." ''[Adjusts his eyeglasses]''-->'''Butt-Head:''' "If that's your opinion, sir; then your testimony as an eyewitness is hardly credible!" ''[Points at Anderson]'' "It is incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial!" ''[Promptly returns to normal, and sits down]'' "...Uh, or something. Uh huh huh. Uh huh huh huh huh. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments I rest on this guy's face....uhh, I mean I rest my case.]]"** Granted, the mention of ''rotten'' eggs exposes that he and Beavis WERE the guilty party [[INeverSaidItWasPoison (since there no other references towards the eggs being rotten)]], but that doesn't detract from the sheer moment of awesome.* Beavis finally reaching his breaking point and telling Butt-Head to shut up, followed by kicking him in the nads. Over a Music/BonJovi video, [[ of all things.]]** Especially awesome if you've ever dealt with a FanHater.** He does [[ the same thing]] when they watch the video for "Firework" by Music/KatyPerry.** Similarly, there's "The Miracle That is Beavis" where, despite his misguided approach, Beavis manages to awesomely assert himself against Buzzcut, [=McVicker=], and Butt-Head. Sadly, it doesn't last.** The ''ultimate'' was when they were watching a Music/{{Rancid}} video, and [[ Beavis just gets completely, awesomely fed up with Butt-head's crap.]]* Stewart's ThrowTheDogABone moment at the end of "Holy Cornholio". After putting up with Beavis and Butt-Head's jokes, one of the series' {{Butt Monkey}}s is going to bang the women that Beavis and Butt-head [[TooDumbToLive pass up]] (due to being completely ignorant of what "conception" means).* Mr. Buzzcut, with just five simple words; [[ "Kick me in the jimmy!"]]** Mr. Buzzcut beating the ''crap'' out of Mr. Candy at the end of [[ "Candy Sale"]].* [=McVicker=] at the Town Hall Meeting in "Dumb Design". He may be a stuttering convulsing mess, but when he tells the arguing crowd to shut up, ''everyone shuts up''. * The duo actually ''succeeding'' in getting in Todd's good graces at the end of "A Great Day."-->'''Todd:''' Hey man. Thanks.\'''Butt-Head:''' Cool. Todd owes us.** And then they see him beat the crap out of somebody.* Even though it's AllJustADream, Beavis's [[ fantasy]] of being in UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution in "Our Founding Losers" is [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome as awesome]] as it is [[AnachronismStew anachronistic]].* They got to meet [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton President Clinton]] in "Citizen Butt-Head." And then ''again'' in [[WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtheadDoAmerica the movie!]]----
