'Generations' Cat Fight: The best moment in television ever

Obviously that headline is facetious. But seriously, have you PopWatchers seen the now-infamous cat fight scene from NBC’s tragic and short-lived soap opera Generations? I’m sure some of you have. But if you haven’t, then you’re in for a real treat: A very young Vivica A. Fox throws down with a gold-lamé-dress wearing Jonelle Allen.

But it’s not just any run-of-the-mill cat fight. These two fired-up broads start with a war of words (“All the money in the world won’t clean you up! You disgust me!”) before devolving into the most outlandish fight scene of all time. Literally, they both snap off their clip-on earrings—and Jonelle even hikes the train from her dress up between her legs!—before tangoing and tearing the apartment apart. Hello! That’s how awesome this protracted scene is. The dialogue is clichéd and wonderful: “Come get me, b***h!” “Daniel Reubens loves me, and no little piece of street trash is is gonna tell me otherwise!” And, my favorite, “I wanna wipe this floor with you!”

I’d go so far as to say this defines the time when soaps were really soaps. I’ll stop talking now, and let you just enjoy.

What’d you think PopWatchers? Best. Clip. Ever. Right?
