Dialed In: Big Bang target (to finish a mode that's about to time out) and bouncing into the sim scoop to collect the sim card.
Quicksilver: Sweeping the bonus x drops and caroming through the lit spinner.
WH2O: Locking the third ball for vacation jackpot.
Family Guy: Hitting the Stewie super jackpot.
Stars: Sniping the lit star for special.
Million point shot on comet was great esp since it’s freakin comet.one of the first epic shots for sure.
bank shot into GEM,
or in GOT the last shot to finish the mode and defeat Drogon for Targaryen...
Vacation jackpot as already said and a very satisfying combo shot on Fathom from the cave trap then scorpion shot into lagoon trap
Dialed In - Hitting the "Big Bang" shot at the end of a mode, then having the ball immediately ricochet into the Sim Card hole.
(A fist pump typically follows this sequence)
The TAF vault shot gets my vote as well, but could you explain the Bermuda Triangle thing? Is that a callout I have never heard or something? Only on Gold Edition?
It's probably in part because it's one of the games that got me hooked on pinball, but I've always been a huge fan of the loop turbo combo on Indy 500, especially when you have triple playfield scoring going and have cranked the loop turbo value up to max for a 3X value of 90 million.
Ngg is mine for Dmd
On solid states its.....sweeping the 4 bank drop targets and it flowing though the lit spinner on Quick Silver
That reminds me Whirlwind has a contender: Get all three drop targets with the skill shot by launching the ball softly so it falls to the right flipper without hitting anything else then knocking them down with a perfectly placed single shot from that flipper.

On a Gottlieb Melody - Having all four extra ball holes lit and landing the ball in the left one. 4 Extra balls in a row!
Whirlwind Super Cellar Door: Not terribly difficult, but the thunderstrike countdown and reward pileup is sooooo damn satisfying!
Another favorite "not quite its own shot, but a thing you can do" is in Space Shuttle, when:
- ball flies down right outlane and saved by gate which then shuts:
-- "A i r l o c k... O p e n..."
--- *just in time to immediately rip backhand shot up spinner lane and strafe all 3 drops:
---- "(Blastoff effect!)... A i r l o c k ... C l o s e d ..."
----- *shout THAT'S RIGHT, B*TCH!!! for emphasis*
Not the best pic, but completing five passes of the horseshoe then hitting the drop target for 173,000 is one if my favorites from Nine Ball.
Not sure if it's a Gold only thing but if you start the 1st multiball with a vault shot instead of the chair you get a callout that says "Not the Bermuda Triangle!"...
I think the jackpot is doubled too.
Second only to "It has to warm up.. so it can kill you!" in my book, and hitting the vault (or Thing) makes such a satisfying metallic sound to boot.
