Love this thread!
Since most of my favourites have already been mentioned, how about:
Alexander Abt's camel spin-not the speed of his spin, but his back and leg position (it was the only time he ever pointed his toes, I think).
Also, Alexander Abt's flying sit spin combination from his 2002 LP.
Johnny Weir's posture and grace-not any particular move, rather the way he moves on ice-like a ballet dancer.
Anything Rudy Galindo did that utilized his amazing flexibility-layback spin, spiral, etc...
Sano Minoru's flying sit spin
Shizuka Arakawa's 3s-3t-3loop
Yuka Sato's edges, 3s and 3loop
Scott Davis's sit spins

Michelle's COE spiral and her split falling leaf (the best in the business, as Dick Button said)

Yu Na's 3-3
Midori Ito's 3-axel

ETA: Shen and Zhao's throws (and their passion)
This. He had an exquisite camel spin. All the Russian men do them well, but his was just
Also, I love Plushenko's 3A-half loop-triple flip. It makes me sad that we don't see stuff like that anymore because a sequence is deemed "easier" and thus only worth .8 of total elements. Ridiculous.
Alissa's spins and Michelle's spiral.
Lots of good posts. I would add:
Robin Cousins - slide spiral
Gary Beacom - weird edges
Nicole Bobek - spiral
David Liu - style and choreography
Rory Flack - split jump
Toller Cranston - reverse camel spin
Ohhh.... I forgot about Rory Flacks split jump!!!
Her skates go higher than her head while in the split jump, I believe.
Carolina Kostner all of her footwork and spirals, the 3F-3T-2L (also 3F-3T-3L she did in practice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y98pNQBU02I), the donut spin
Ryan Bradley (duh?)
Sasha's I spin
Mirai's Ina bauer
Jonathan's spread eagles
Keegan's spins in general, and the squat change of edge thing he does (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NmwdEbxOM8 2:51)
Sasha or Mirai's layback spin
Ryan's spin that I don't know the name of
Davis/White's Phantom lifts

Her speed into 3f-3t was better? I thought both combinations had similar speed.
Thank you for sharing the video. I love Kirk's footwork.
