Where does Ari Gold land on the best TV Characters ever? For me he is right up there at the top. Hard to argue against him because this man has some of the most memorable scenes in TV history. From 2004 to 2011 he may have had the most quotable lines in all the entertainment industry. I mean pick your poison, the Carmen Electra line, anything he says to Lloyd, Hug it out bitch, anytime he screams "LLOYD!!!!", anything he says at Sundance, "I PAID $2,000 FOR THESE SEATS ILL GET OUT THERE AND LAUNCH A 3 IF I WANT TO!". Quote machine. The paintball gun scene is classic too, probably can't do that scene now though. Anytime he bitches at E or any interaction with Billy Walsh. The therapist scenes always were great too, those went under the radar too.
And now that I'm thinking about it, what is his best moment? What's Ari Gold's best rant/line/quote/action/throw phone? Let me know in the comments what you think it is because I think there are too many to choose from. Maybe him having the plug pulled in the movie? Loved that scene.
PS. He was the reason I got a blackberry in 2008.
