10 Most memorable TV kisses

Perhaps one of the most iconic couples on TV, first place goes to Ross & Rachel in ‘Friends’. After trying it on but initially breaking up, the romantic reunited kiss after a prom video showing Ross’s everlasting love for Rachel has been viewed over 4 million times on YouTube. Turns out he really was her lobster!

In second place is the crescendo of Nick & Jess’s dance of love in ‘New Girl’. Fans may have rooted for the couple from the get-go, but after a night of drunken games, the usually joking Nick grabs Jess off guard and shows her how he really feels with a seriously steamy kiss. The scene earned a massive 2 million+ views.

Jake Peralta & Amy Santiago claim third place. Whilst sparks were seen here and there in the lighthearted cop comedy ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’, the evidence room kiss took us all by a happy surprise, earning an impressive 1.6 million+ views and proving the couple as one of our favourites.


Whilst just friends at first, we always knew Jim & Pam in ‘The Office’ (US) would get together. But not before a heartbreaking admission of love from Jim who was rejected by Pam. His honest and emotional confession followed by a kiss in the office has been viewed 1.3 million+ times and places them in fourth. Many of us still haven’t recovered emotionally from this scene.

At the other end of the table is Booth & Brennan from ‘Bones’. Whilst in 20th place, their passionate kiss in the rain which was cut short by a waiting taxi makes it all the more steamy and earned them a still respectable 297,222 YouTube views to date.
