17 TV Scenes That Are So Funny, They May Be The Best Ever

From Veep to New Girl to I Love Lucy.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which TV scenes make them laugh every single time they watch them. Here are the hilarious results.

1. In The Office, when Dwight planned a surprise fire drill for everyone, and all hell broke loose.

"I think this is the best scene from the show. When Angela pulls her cats out of the filing cabinet and throws them through the ceiling...I just can’t. I’m laughing while typing this."

"Look, I'm not normally into this type of humor at all, but the delivery of the random woman in the elevator gets me every time. It's the exact opposite of what you think is going to happen, and that's why it works so well. All of Season 2 is perfection."
