    Default Best arguing characters from a TV show

    In both comedy and drama, there are many tv shows that have two characters that are always sniping at each other. If written well, their arguments can be quite entertaining.

    Who are your favorite arguing characters in tv history?

    Example: divorced couple Dorothy and Stan Zbornak on The Golden Girls:

    Stan: Come on, Dorothy. You'll have the time of your life.
    Dorothy: The time of my life??!! Stan, the last time you said that, it took 12 seconds. And I ended up three months pregnant at my own wedding.

    Stan: I am but a humble servant.
    Dorothy: Mr. Belvedere is a humble servant, Stanley. You're a horse's a$$

    Stan: Hello, Mama Bear. Papa Bear is back in the cave.
    Dorothy: I could vomit just looking at you.

    Nice list.

    Malcom Tucker (Peter Capaldi, "In the Thick of It") and whomever else he's with in a scene.

    And a shout out to the originators (in Television, at least) Fred and Ethel.

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Fred Sandford and Aunt Esther: Sandford and Son

    This isn't even a contest for me



    Their bouts are legendary. Aunt Esther really should have gotten her own spin off show.

    Fred and Aunt Esther were brilliant.

    Also Archie and Meathead from All In The Family.

    There was an episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" where Andy got a bickering couple to stop bickering, but they seemed miserable while trying to be nice to each other, so Aunt Bea told Andy that sometimes couples who really love each other show their love by bickering (or something to that effect), so Andy then got the couple to insult each other so that they would start bickering again and be happy with their relationship.
