9. Wipe Me Down - Taraji loves Terrence Howard but they have to do enough kissing as Cookie and Lucious Lyon.  After Terrence decided to kiss Henson's cheek at the 2015 Emmys, Taraji decided that she'd rather not have a face full of the actor's germs.

8. "That's My Best Friend, My Best Friend, My Best Friend!" - If you wanted an actress that hides her excitement you shouldn't have invited Taraji.  When Regina King won Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role in American Crime, Henson lost it.

5. The Original Cash Me Ousside - Henson read some mean tweets for Jimmy Kimmel and her reaction wasn't quite as calm as other celebrities.  Danielle Bregoli coined the phrase "Cash Me Ousside" and we're pretty sure she was motivated by Taraji's "Meet Me Outside" response:
