When the BBC decided to book former UKIP leader and Donald Trump's BFF Nigel Farage alongside Esquire's Editor-at-Large Will Self for Thursday night's Question Time, this was the moment everyone was waiting to see.
Writer and professor Self was reflecting on both Trump and Farage being nominated for Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2016, which Trump eventually won.
Not that you'd call it 'winning', as Self helpfully pointed out that Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin were also once handed the title, which is more about representing someone's influence than popularity.
So, with the controversial politician sitting across the panel from him, Self looked Farage's way and explained his response to Trump being the 'Time Person of the Year'.
"I always think it's a great paradox Nigel Farage subscribes to the great man of history theory, given that he doesn't quite shape up to that himself," he began.
"While I think Trump is a personification of major changes in geo-politics, I'm not so sure the man himself is truly significant.
"It's what he symbolises. As with Brexit, it was a case of a political eventuality people didn't expect. That's because we've moved beyond the frame of politics we have known for a long time. Trump rode that wave. To some extent, he created it.
"Trump, Nigel. This is not Churchill, Hitler and Stalin - thank God… Step back a minute, people. These are not great statesmen."
When Question Time host David Dimbleby then asked Self what they were, he replied:
"Err, they are grubby little opportunists riding the coattails of history."
Cue great applause from the audience and the moment of the night.
Former Tory MP Louise Mensch, current Tory MP Sarah Wollaston and Labour's shadow justice minister Richard Burgon were also on the panel this week.
