What's your all-time favorite 'Las Vegas' moment?

Josh_nikki_lLas Vegas celebrates its 100th episode tonight (NBC, 10 p.m.), and even if you stopped watching the show years ago, you might want to check out my trip down memory lane with creator Gary Scott Thompson (click here). He used the phrase "The Great Nipple War of the first season"— that’s all I’m sayin’.

Something we chatted about that’s not in that piece is one of his favorite episodes, the first season finale. You remember: Danny (Josh Duhamel) is going off to war, and he says goodbye to everyone in the casino but Mary (Nikki Cox), who’s fighting back tears. Then there’s a knock on her door, and Danny walks in for the sex scene we’d all been waiting for. Thompson said that episode almost didn’t get made: "I remember a bunch of execs saying ‘The war might not even be going on by the time this show comes back for Season 2.’" That’s one time you wish the network was right.

Enough of that heavy stuff. In typical Las Vegas fashion, let’s abruptly lighten the mood! Share your favorite moment from the show’s five-year run below. I’ll confess that I bailed before Lara Flynn Boyle joined the cast, and now I’m kinda regretting it. They flew the woman off the roof of a building and crashed her headfirst into a shoe store??? Awesome.

    The best moment is, hands down, when Lara Flynn Boyle flew off that rooftop! It was what should’ve happened to her character in that movie ‘Threesome’, leaving Josh Charles & Stephen Baldwin all to themselves!

    LAS VEGAS is SUCH a guilty pleasure & even after it made the move to Friday nights I’ve continued to record the show because it TRULY is the modern-day LOVE BOAT. Sure some of the stories are a wee bit (okay a WEE bit) unfathomable, but the show all seems to still find true north on its own moral compass. I can’t pick just one favorite moment off the top of my head, but Mandi you missed quite a few good epsiodes & storylines since Lara Flynn joined & left the cast! This season’s Vegas stripper strike episode was PRICELSS, and that adorable little kid named Danny that helped Danny & Delinda learn of what to expect from their own expecting child was too cute for words! He reminded me of Jonathan Lipnicki from Jerry Maguire! Mandi def. RENT or buy the seasons you missed on dvd! They’re too ammusing & much better than the reality tv crap flooding the airwaves due to the Writers Strike!

    I think Laura Flynn Boyle flying off the roof has to be my favorite too…I do miss James Caan though…

    Last season’s season finale was fantastic. All this happening at the same time:
    Bomb explodes in the hotel (potentially killing Delinda)
    Casino’s being robbed
    Who’s going to kill Mary’s father (and who actually did)?
    Sam trapped in a trunk and almost raped by a whale on a plane before she pushes him out the door!
    That was the most crazy episode of any show I think I’ve ever seen!

    The best moment? The opening credits, of course! Five or six of the most unbelievably beautiful women on earth, all on the same show!

    I love the opening credits for the show. My son loves to dance to the Elvis song.

    I was lured in on the original concept on the show. The pilot featured Mary as a high-end call girl and a darker tone to the show. When it went all “Love Boat/Baywatch” I checked out.
