It wouldn’t be odd to call Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton) the Patrick Bateman of sitcom television. As the savviest member of the gang in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, he’s witty, intelligent, and has the character traits of a would-be serial killer. Dennis is also incredibly vain — with an abundance of confidence regarding his charm and abilities — yet can rapidly turn insecure in certain situations beside particularly intimidating or famous people.

In addition to his comedic genius, Howerton is exceptionally gifted at delivering public meltdowns and giving us unforgettable moments that have become classics in the show’s history by now. Here, we gathered 10 of them that stand out for several reasons.

Season 1 Episode 1

Looking back at the very beginning of the series from the distance of time, it’s even more astonishing how boldly it began. In the pilot, the group meets Dee’s (Kaitlin Olson) new boyfriend, who brings a massive amount of new gay customers to Paddy’s Pub. At first, the three guys feel conflicted about running the hottest gay bar in Philly, but as soon as they count the profit they made the first night, their mind is quickly made up.
