Is there anything more adorable than seeing Homeland‘s Mandy Patinkin jump up and down in excitement?

If your answer is “no,” you’re a part of the majority who voted his Live with Kelly and Michael appearance back in February as their favorite clip of the year.

On Monday, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan rounded up the top Live moments of 2014, as voted by their loyal viewers.

Number one with a bullet was the Feb. 19 episode which saw Patinkin, 62, reunited not with one but with two of his lost loves. First, Ripa, 44, and Strahan, 43, surprised him with a visit from his first kiss.

As he later explained to the giddy Live hosts, Patinkin has even tried to use his connections with the FBI and the CIA – courtesy of the shows he’s worked on – to get them to “hunt down” his college girlfriend, Lenore.

When Lenore stepped onto the stage, Patinkin essentially – adorably – lost his mind. Meanwhile, Ripa and Strahan were basically rapturous in the background, Ripa jumping up and down in excitement.

So, was Patinkin’s big surprise your favorite Live moment of 2014? Or did you have something else in mind? Sound off below.
