Variety asked “Mike & Molly” exec producer Chuck Lorre, showrunner Al Higgins and the supporting cast to share their favorite moments and personal highlights from 100 episodes.

Nyambi Nyambi
“Pilot” (season 1, episode 1)
“We knew that we had something special — the makings of family.”

Chuck Lorre
“First Date” (season 1, episode 2)
“Molly has a horrible cold but is determined to go on her first date with Mike. The chemistry between Melissa and Billy was incredible.”

Swoosie Kurtz
“After the Lovin’” (season 1, episode 7)
“I relish playing this very sexually active character who’s no stranger to the grape. ”

Louis Mustillo
“Molly Makes Soup” (season 1, episode 14)
“When Vince gets down on his knee and asks Joyce to marry him. It is so warm and funny and strange at the same time.”

Katy Mixon
“Victoria’s Birthday” (season 1, episode 23)
“I got to sing ‘Oh Happy Day’ with the choir directed by Jimmy Burrows!”

David Anthony Higgins
“St. Patrick’s Day” (season 3, episode 17)
“The scene where (Harry) tells Victoria that he’s gay is the closest I will ever get to playing the balcony scene from ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ ”

Al Higgins
“They Shoot Asses, Don’t They?” (season 4, episode 7)
“When Mike gets shot in the line of duty … I love how vulnerable Billy is in this episode. You get to see how much range he has.”

Rondi Reed
“Three Girls and an Urn” (season 4, episode 15)
“Twenty years before, (Kathy Bates) directed me in a pilot for CBS, and I thought how amazing it would be to act with her. And then the dream came true. Lucky me.”

Cleo King
“McMillan and Mom” (season 4, episode 17)
“The most life-changing for me was when Grandma had to explain to Carl why she had taken him in when he was a child. It was so real and so pure — touching because I had just adopted a son in real life.”

Reno Wilson
“Mike Check” (season 5, episode 8)
“Reaching 100 episodes is such a rare feat to achieve.”
