The very first episode of Inside the Actors Studio aired Aug. 14, 1994.
Hosted by former brothel worker and Arrested Development star James Lipton, the show has gone on to become a cultural institution, both for Lipton's ah, specific, delivery and persona, and for its watchable, occasionally riveting looks into the craft of acting.
Here are five great moments from the show's 20-year-and-counting run.

To paraphrase Ted and Robin: "Major Warning!" This story contains spoilers about tonight's final episode of How I Met Your Mother.
Back in 2005 as How I Met Your Mother debuted, I wrote that it was the Lost of sitcoms – a group of people searching for love and identity while marooned on an island. (Have you ever tried to escape Manhattan during rush hour?) There was plenty of time travel, too. And like Lost, the CBS sitcom bowed out controversially, but as many fans predicted.

"And that, kids, is how I met your mother."
With that line, How I Met Your Mother came to an end on Monday with an hour-long episode that finally wrapped up the story Ted (Josh Radnor) has been telling for nine seasons. While fans have known all along that Ted would meet The Mother (Cristin Milioti) at a train station platform in fictional Farhampton, Long Island, the show's final episode revealed several new twists in the story of the gang: Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders).
Below, we recap the finale's best moments in quotes. Warning: There are a few spoilers!

We already have our tissues ready for the series finale of How I Met Your Mother on Monday, but this makes it a little easier to bear.
The cast of the show got together for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio on Thursday, and when they did, it was … legendary.
There were lots of laughs, but the best moment came when Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel performed an impromptu duet of "Confrontation" from the musical Les Miserables.

With a handful of episodes left before the cast of How I Met Your Mother go their separate ways, Neil Patrick Harris acknowledges that it's a bittersweet time.
"We're saying the word 'last' a lot more than we ever did," he told PEOPLE on Wednesday during a Television Critics Association set visit. "We knew that it was going to come to an end, but we never really talked about the end, so this season has been filled with a lot of us saying, 'Oh.' "
As Harris and his castmates Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan fielded questions from reporters, both of the actresses said, "You guys really want us to cry."

Holiday travel is awful.
You're lugging around a bulky coat. The lines at the airport are unbearable. And there's always someone insufferable on your plane (and, usually, sitting right next to you).
But it doesn't have to be an express jet to hell. This year, WestJet pulled off the sweetest "miracle" for passengers, with a little help from Santa and his elves (er, their employees). Santa asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas – only to find their presents coming down the baggage shoot when they arrived at their destination.
Plus: Another video that will make you weep, more that will make you laugh, the trailer for the Dr. Who Christmas special, and more of the most important random things online.

Earlier this year, the audience finally met How I Met Your Mother's titular star, and on Monday's season nine premiere, one more person joined that elusive club – just not Ted himself.
Over the course of two back-to-back episodes, Ted's best friend Lily (Alyson Hannigan) met his dream woman on board a train headed to the fictional Farhampton, Long Island, where Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) are set to wed. It marked the first major scenes for actress Cristin Milioti, who made her debut as the much-anticipated mother in last May's season finale. As the show progresses towards its series finale in 2014, the audience will continue to learn more about Ted's as-yet unnamed wife-to-be, but in case you missed it, here's what we learned on Monday:
