I'm surprised we haven't got an on-going thread on this as there are so many hilarious episodes to choose from.
My favourite is when the camera zoomed in on Mervyn King's enraged boat when he was suffering yet another kicking from Taylor a few years ago...probably around 2009/10 but I can't remember which tournament - I wish it was on youtube as it was absolutely hysterical.
I've mentioned it before on here and it seems NOBODY else witnessed it except me & my Ex...we were creased up in bulk at Merv.

I'll get the ball rolling with a quickly assembled personal top 10, many of which are sure to be favourites for most darting aficionados on here:

Taylor's 'Filth' interview after the Mason 'Big Balls' comments
Colin Lloyd's fisting of the 'unicorn' a few years back
MVG's 9-darter against Steve Beaton
James Richardson's 'Vindaloo' walk-on
Dean Winstanley's crazed abscondment after his 9-darter
Barney's pissed-up man-on-man gay love appreciation for Bunty
Steve Farmer's smug celebration after hitting consecutive 180s only to realise he's bust his score
Kevin McDine daring to ridicule MVG...only to get ransacked after the interval
Michael Meaney's glum & unappreciative boat after the crowd were singing along to MVG's tune..."Oh Michael van Meaney" when he scored an unexpected ton.

I hope so of you will remind me of some other obvious magic moments I've forgotten about.

Taylor's infamous 'filth' interview after beating Mason. "I'll walk away tomorrow, I'm not having somebody like that eff and blind at me like that on stage".
Martin Atkins getting treatment on his arm in the Jimmy Tarbuck suite by the Golden Girl and then coming back on stage to give a rambling 'emotional' speech as to why he can't carry on.

Ted Hankey having "a stroke" on stage when he was just battered. Shots at T20 ending up in the 17 bed and the like. Incredibly he recovered from such a serious condition mid-match (ie, sobered up a bit) and won the game.

Richie 'Pot Noodle' Burnett beating Barney and fist pumping to me as I got carried away in the BDO WC final (stuck £5 on him!)

Paul 'Put 'em to bed' Nicholson sitting on the stage floor. Another moment was when he was crying like a girl in the pairs final with Whitlock, who looked less than impressed with his partners emotions after losing to Taylor/Lewis.

Listening to John Boy Walton wax lyrical about the size of the 'Tripod' whilst having a beer in the Krankie suite @ the Lakeside.

Ted Hankey winning the worlds with a 170 checkout and a 7-0 win. He was unstoppable that year.

Barney making the switch and beating Taylor in a classic WC final.

Tony Fleet smashed @ the lakeside and hitting double 1 when aiming for T20. Averaged 63 and never had a shot at a double if memory serves.

Paul Lims 9 darter. Was the holy grail @ the time.

C0cky Bristow leaving 32 v Deller instead of going for the bull only to see the milky bar kid check out a big finish.

Wolfie & his Mrs in bits after Phil Nixon recovered from 6-0 down to take it to a deciding set in BDO WC final.

I think you're mixing up 2 games. I can't remember who the stroke was against but he came from something like 6-1 down to beat Whitlock 10-9 in a 1.01 buster

Great stuff Charwell - some crackers there, though I'm unaware of the John Walton 'tripod' business.

The lad in the bdo worlds...both brother and sister qualified one year...his name a raul or something...i'm off to check.
A rather brazen character who's darting display warranted automatic qualification for a further 10 years.

I'll find him then post some you tube footage of this great darts enthusiast. Grin

David qualified for the 2013 BDO World Championship via the International Playoffs.[3] He played Wesley Harms in the first round losing to Harms 3-1.[4]

David's sister, Rachna, plays on the BDO women's circuit.[1] The David family are of Indian extraction.[3]

Mirror mirror on the wall who's got the shortest fuse of all?

Painter v Adrian Lewis is a good one.
Painter as we know is a total angel...
Cue the carnage - Might surprise people that this incident led to several months suspension for both players.

Hence one of the reasons why no phones are allowed in the behind closed doors pro tour events.
Other reasons:
No phone rings during play.
No betting at any time.
No photos at any time.

Painter v Adrian Lewis..All kicks off here...Devil

Taylor not noticing his double 12 versus Winstanley wasn't actually in the double. Winstanley standing 15ft away queried it, the commentators queried it, but Phil standing beside it didn't notice. Mind you there were lots of shadows on the board!

Taylor offered to replay the match, donate his winnings, then he said when the mc calls game shot that's it, neither of which answered the question. He's managed to brush this one under the carpet as it was a minor tournament, but he'd be more of a man to admit he pulled a dart he knew wasn't in.

Might need help on this one.

The great Welsh player Alan Evans returned from some lengthy ban and was playing his old foe Eric Bristow,he won but his victory celebrations were manic and showed years of frustration.

Remember it well. Evans, post-ban, beat Bristow in what used to be the UK Professional Championships when it used to be on the BBC in around 1981. The match was shown on Sportsnight, and as you say, Alan Evans raced around the stage in celebration to rub it in.  Sadly can't find on YouTube.

A grudge match of sorts. Evans had also knocked Bristow out of the '79 World Championship in a match famous for the 'afters' interview on telly, when as I recall various fines were handed out.
