In a 1e game where one of my friends absolutely hated the Bounty Hunter character I played. I never knew why. Anyway, I told him I'd stop running him alongside his character and introduced a new PC, a fighter into the game.
After a few game sessions where they adventured together quite successfully my character knocked his out cold, trussed him up, and revealed that it'd been my old character in disguise the whole time (the DM gave plenty of chances to see through it but he was never able to do so).
I turned him in for the bounty and let him sit in the caliph's dungeon a few days before turning up and breaking him out and sharing the reward with him. I told him that like me or not, I just saved his butt and we were both 5,000 gp richer. He was really pissed at ME for a long time but eventually got over it.
I have so many, but this one is my favorite.
I ran a 10 year long 2e campaign that ended in 2000. One of the major characters was my friend Tam's ranger, Diana Brownsparrow. Her backstory included leaving her homeland to escape her abusive lover, another ranger.
At one point I ran a couple of adventures where he showed up and joined the party. The roleplaying was awesome between her and "him". But soon he showed his true colors and turned on her again, so she told him to leave under threat of death.
A year and a half later (in real time) I'd run a few adventures that made them think he was somewhere still around. Sure enough he was, as he showed up in the nick of time to save Diana and the rest of the group from a pack of ghouls. He sacrificed his life so they could escape.
6 more real time months go by, with lots of gaming. At the end of a particularly harrowing adventure, they faced off against a wight, who they discovered was her former lover. He told her he that, "I swore I would love you until I die, and now we'll be together forever!" He attacked, and after a really good combat segment, she killed him for good. Tam, the ranger's player, actually broke down and cried because she was imagining the emotional agony Diana would be going through after it was all over.
That is most definitely cool!!!!

I'm much more a flavor type of player and GM than one who is interested greatly in balance and power. If a 3PP sounds cool, I'll go with it. That said, I am pretty picky about the 3PP publishers I allow. Currently it's mostly Rite Publishing, Dreamscarred Press, Kobold Press, and Rogue Genius Games.
After 29 years of D&D editions I still get things wrong, forget to mention things in game that might be important, forget key abilities that adversaries have, etc. And I always manage to skip this one guy in the initiative order. The same guy every time. And I have notes in front of me so that shouldn't happen, but it does. And we still have fun.
This is a pretty good looking array.

The opening scene of "Horizon" is available, as well. It's about 6 minutes long.
