If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been watching the iconic duo that is Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes kill it in their new series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+.

Marvel Studios

Well, I figured we could take a stroll down memory lane and reminisce on the very best of Sam and Bucky — together and independently — in the MCU before their show! Here are 18 of their most iconic moments:

1. First of all, when Bucky politely introduced himself to Sam by…ripping the steering wheel out of the car Sam was driving:

Marvel Studios

Because this is how all great friendships start, obviously.

2. When Bucky said goodbye to Steve before going off to war…:

3. …And when they did the same thing in reverse when Steve left to return the Infinity Stones in Endgame:

Marvel Studios

Oh, how these elderly supermen make me cry.

4. When Sam met Steve for the first time…and then again when Steve lapped him:

Marvel Studios

Poor Sam, just constantly getting dunked on by elderly supermen left and right.

5. When Bucky reminded Steve who the man behind the mask was:

6. When Bucky saw post-serum Steve for the first time in The First Avenger and was all of us:

Not even Bucky Barnes was immune to Captain America’s transformation from lanky dude to human Dorito.

7. When Sam was understandably still on the fence about being chill with the super soldier who tried to end him just scenes before:

Marvel Studios

A fair response, tbh.

8. When Sam was very much over long, drawn out villain monologues:

9. When Steve and Bucky had their big ~face off~ in The Winter Soldier:

10. And, of course, the scene it called back to that has and will forever make me cry:

11. When Sam tried to introduce Natasha to his mechanical child, Redwing:

Excuse me! I would very much like to pet Redwing, please and thanks.

12. When Sam asked T’Challa the question that was on all our minds:

*Gretchen Wieners voice* “Oh my god, Sam, you can’t just ask someone why they’re a cat!”

13. When Sam and Bucky gave us this *chef’s kiss* interaction that made us want 1,000 more scenes of them together:

14. When Sam and Bucky were excited to be supportive wingmen for their BFF:

15. When Bucky met Spider-Man for the first time and was understandably Very Confused™️:

16. When Sam continued enforcing his “no dumb monologues during fights” rule:

Marvel Studios

It’s my personal belief that Sam and Bucky share a grand total of three brain cells, and I think this scene proves it.

17. When Sam came to the rescue AND gave Steve a taste of his own medicine in Endgame:

18. And finally, when Steve passed the Captain America shield over to Sam:

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go continue scrolling through SamBucky memes and pretend half of these scenes did not make me tear up.
