Shipping Meme!

I was going to do this as a survey all at once, but some of my answers are getting longer than expected, so instead I'm going to do it in batches.  Possibly multiple times a day or over the course of two weeks, who knows.

Day 01 - What is your current favorite ship?
This answer's been changing by the week for the past couple of months, and I expect they too will get bumped when the fall TV herd returns, but right now, my brain has been pretty occupied by Scrubs' Jordan/Perry. Because despite their front of mutual dislike and heaps of insulting snark (which, don't get me wrong, is utterly delightful), they've got so many legitimately sweet moments tucked in there that they almost eclipse Jim & Pam for sheer quantity. I have a huge stockpile and I keep finding more daily. Fine, apparently I still can't put all my feelings into words, but suffice to say I don't even remember the last time I exploded with this much love for a pairing.  BONUS: they gave me not one but two babies, and both even came with fun pregnancy complications at some point.

Is this the best clip representative I can find?  Eh, no, but it's the one I currently find most entertaining, so that's what you get.  "Jordan Godzilla Sullivan, you stop that and you stop it now!"  

# Day 02 - What was your very first ship?
*digs back into brain* You know, looking at the release dates, I just realized that I was all about Aladdin/Jasmine, of Disney fame, before Power Rangers came on the scene.  Maybe because he was a much more developed character than most of the princes. And she was just so very pretty...and had a pet tiger!

# Day 03 - A pairing that needs to happen now?
It would be really nifty if Private Practice would reboot itself and go with Cooper/Violet + Pete/Addison after all, but that seems unlikely.

# Day 04 - The pairing with the most chemistry?
To make it easy on myself, I'm going to say classic Mulder & Scully.

# Day 05 - The pairing with the least chemistry?
Gosh, Grey's Anatomy just gives me so many options...but you know what, I'm going to forgo them all in favor of Foreman/Thirteen on House, because they may be the two flattest characters ever to start a relationship.  There's literally nothing happening there for me. I can't even hate them. More telling, I can't even appreciate them when they are being sweet in a fully clothed way.  Or when he's trying to comfort her. Normally that can make me ship anything, but not them.

# Day 06 - The best kiss?
Let's see, I gave it to "Casino Night" in the regular 30-day meme, and now I'm stumped.  Kissing being a low priority in my Log of Shippy Glee, I am having trouble actually remembering any that set my heart wildly aflutter (there are a lot of Numb3rs ones, but I can't pick a favorite I haven't already talked to death Angels and Devils), so I choose to void this question until such time as I am able to comb through my archival list and come up with a Top 20.

Although I have always been very fond of the picture-perfect "Millenium" kiss on X-Files. Which I was going to embed here, but I can't find it, and I'm suddenly distracted by HOLD THE PHONE, WHAT DO YOU MEAN there was a kissing outtake from Memento Mori?!  How is it possible I have never known about this?

It just occurred to me that I could have gone with a movie. Augh!  Watch me torment myself even more as I try to recall the most romantic scenes in cinema history.  Or not, because I'm going to post this and move on.

P.S. As proof of kissing's low priority, I'd just like to point out that it doesn't exist in any of my icons except Gibbs pecking Abby on the cheek.  I only have around 50, but still, there is no lip-locking.
