#20: Kourtney vs. Khloé & Kim on Selling DASH
“Time to Dash”

As Season 13 got underway, the Kardashians received an offer to sell DASH to a big department store. While Kim and Khloé see this proposal as an opportunity to move on from a business venture that doesn't reflect their current situations, Kourtney is immediately opposed to the prospect. Kim and Khloé humor Kourtney for a moment, but things become heated as the three sisters argue over DASH's future. Khloé is particularly vicious during this fight, as she sounds completely exasperated by Kourtney's objections. In the end, the sisters do manage to reach a compromise.

#19: Rob & Kendall Argue Over an iPad
"Out With the Old, In With the New"

Rob tends to get sidelined for the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner children, but there were certainly times when he could not be ignored. Rob's romance with Blac Chyna sparked quite a bit of tension within the family, leading to a war of memes and several rather angry phone calls. In Season 12, Rob regifted an iPad he received from Kendall to his new girlfriend, an act that was not appreciated. Backed by Kylie, Kendall called Rob and gave him a piece of her mind. Kendall demanded that Rob return the gift since, apparently, he didn't need it.

#18: Kourtney Borrows Kim’s Bag Without Asking
"What's Yours is Mine"

It's never just about a bag, although sometimes it really feels like it. When putting together her look for a night out with Simon and Jonathan, Kourtney decides to take Kim's bag without asking for permission. Kourtney arrives for dinner and, to her surprise, Kim is sitting right next to Simon. Caught bag-handed, Kourtney and Kim spend the rest of the evening throwing shade at each other, with Jonathan adding a few zingers at mostly the eldest Kardashian sibling's expense. The situation escalates enough throughout dinner that Kim ends up leaving.

#17: Kim & Kourtney’s Candyland Fight
“Hard Candy”

A joint party just means double the trouble. In Season 17, Kourtney and Kim decided to team up and stage a party for Penelope and North, but the sisters wind up butting heads before the big event. Despite the party having a Candyland theme, Kourtney proposes they go for a healthy selection of food, a suggestion that baffles Kim. Naturally, Khloé gets dragged into the middle of things and spends most of the scenes looking mildly annoyed by everything that's going on. Kim and Kourtney eventually reach an understanding and learn a valuable life lesson.

#16: Rob Keeps His Engagement A Secret
"Oh Baby!"

Rob and his sisters had their share of arguments during Season 12, but one fight, in particular, carried more weight than any other. Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney learn through social media that Rob has become engaged to Blac Chyna. Obviously, the news comes as a shock for the sisters, especially since they weren't told anything directly from Rob. The siblings agree to meet and iron things out, and the tension during this meeting is so thick it could be cut with a knife. Exactly when things seem to be calming down, Rob drops another bombshell on his sisters.

#15: Kim Accuses Kourtney of Stealing Her Style
"Birthdays and Bad News Part 2"

Each Kardashian sister has her own brand, and they are naturally very protective of that. In the lead-up to her 40th birthday, Kourtney went through several dresses, none of which passed the Kim test. With the party closing in, Kourtney turned to the designer in charge of Kim's Met Gala look. Seeing this as a blatant case of mimicry, Kim blasted Kourtney for supposedly stealing her style. A fiery phone call was followed up by a war of words via text messages. Ultimately, Kim decided to extend an olive branch by gifting Kourtney a new dress.

#14: Rob & Kim Trade Insults
"Trouble in Paradise"

At one point or another, all families are going to argue, especially when every single moment of their lives is broadcast for the world to see. During a what was supposed to be a relaxing trip to Bora Bora, Rob and Kim got into arguably their most iconic fight, one that culminated with Kim's then-fiancé politely requesting permission from Kris Jenner to get "physical" with her son. As the duo's colorful language temporarily acted as the soundtrack to Bora Bora's gorgeous resort, neither sibling proved willing to give the other an inch; luckily, Rob left before things escalated further.

#13: Kim & Jonathan vs. Khloé
"Moons Over Montana"

Due to the famous family dominating the reality TV scene for more than a decade, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" has been able to push some of the sisters' acquaintances into the limelight. Over the years, E!'s series has made it crystal clear that any family trip is bound to result in a huge blowout, but here, the presence of Kim and Khloé's best friends only added fuel to the already roaring fire. Arguing over who should get which room, the conflict quickly jumped from 0 to 60 when Jonathan accused Khloé of playing second fiddle to Kim. Ouch.

#12: Sisters Gang Up on Kris for Coddling Rob
"Out With the Old, In With the New"

As Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner's only son, Rob seems to have struggled the most to embrace the spotlight, even going so far as to not appear during quite a few of the later seasons of the show. Rob's relationship with Blac Chyna was a point of contention throughout the Kardashian household, one that exploded when the couple moved out of Khloé's house and Kris decided to buy them some real estate. Accused of coddling Rob and refusing to cut the cord, Kris quickly drew the scrutiny of the Kardashian sisters.

#11: Khloé vs. Kourtney
"The Gender Reveal"

"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" shines the brightest whenever Khloé, Kim, and Kourtney share a scene, as the family's core trio elevates cursing to an Olympic sport. Understandably upset over Kourtney's persistent tardiness and lack of interest in spending time with her sisters, Khloé finally decides that enough is enough and tears into her sibling when she spends a boat ride talking on her phone instead of enjoying the sights. The tension remains relatively high for the rest of the evening; however, the squabbling ends after a seemingly random insult.

#10: Kris vs. Caitlyn
"Out With the Old, In With the New"

Ever since premiering in 2007, the Kardashians have regularly made headlines due to various controversies; however, nothing really compares to Caitlyn Jenner’s transition and the drama that ensued. After Caitlyn's "Vanity Fair" article painted a not so flattering portrait of the family, Khloé eventually hit back during a Howard Stern interview, criticizing Caitlyn for not telling the family about her planned transition. With both parties feeling betrayed, things came to a head when an emotional Kris called Caitlyn to defend Khloé, although her plea mainly fell on deaf ears.

#9: Kourtney vs Kim Over Kim’s Video Game
"Someone Over The Cuckoo's Nest"

When dealing with any Kardashian storyline, pinpointing when reality turns into fiction can be an insurmountable challenge, so sometimes the best option is to simply roll with the punches. If Kourtney and Kim want to spend an entire episode arguing over the former's refusal to be in the latter's ridiculously lucrative mobile game, then just microwave some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the ride! While Kim's decision to not pay royalties to her sisters seems slightly unnecessary, the second oldest Kardashian sibling rightfully points out that Kourtney has to literally do nothing to appear in the game.

#8: Kendall & Kylie’s ESPY Fight
"That Was Then This Is Now"

While the Kardashian siblings tend to be at the forefront of any family squabble, occasionally, the focus shifts to the Jenner sisters. With Caitlyn scheduled to receive the "Arthur Ashe Courage Award" at the "ESPY" awards, the young Instagram icons were naturally nervous prior to the ceremony, and the tension finally boiled over when Kylie denied Kendall's request to borrow a dress. After a huge fight that featured a cameo by Kylie's dogs, the sisters realized their anger was merely a way to alleviate some of the stress surrounding Caitlyn's award ceremony.

#7: Kris Throws Kim’s Phone
"Kardashian Family Vacation"

Time for a trip down memory lane! All the way back in season 2, the Kardashians tried to plan a family trip. Unfortunately, Kim's eyes remained firmly glued to her phone. Irritated by Kim's lack of interest, Kris opted for a rather hands-on approach to dispensing with the issue. After confiscating and ditching her daughter's phone, Kris quickly learned that a battle is not over until Kim gets the last word. In this case, the argument climaxed with the resounding thud of Kris' phone crashing to the floor after a single-story drop.

#6: Kylie & Kendall’s Palm Springs Fight
“Trouble in Palm Springs”

What happens in Palm Springs doesn't stay in Palm Springs. As the family settled down for a relaxing getaway to recharge their batteries and bond, Kendall and Kylie found themselves arguing over a dress and its rightful owner for the night. Although the pair seem to initially set aside their differences, the night is anything but a huge success. While the rest of the family listens in over a call, Kendall and Kylie get into a huge argument, one that even seems to get physical. The fact this fight mostly happened off-screen made it feel more extreme than usual, and it took the sisters a while to reconcile.

#5: Scott Stuffs Money in a Waiter’s Mouth
"Blame It on The Alcohol"

In one of the most infamous episodes of the series, Scott Disick gets plastered in Vegas, makes a scene at a restaurant, and gets dumped by Kourtney. Scott had been making enemies for quite a while, with Kris losing patience with his antics. However, things escalated from a five to a million when Scott crashed Kim's birthday dinner in Vegas. After a long and frustrating night, Scott's behavior finally reached a breaking point when he stuffed some $100 bills in a waiter's mouth. Kris and Kourtney give Scott his marching order and he is never seen again on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." Okay, maybe that last part didn’t happen.

#4: Rob Borrows Kim’s Bentley & Gets a Tattoo
“Cinderella Story”

As he prepared to graduate from college, Rob started to act out a bit, which didn't go exactly unnoticed by the rest of the family. This fight comes in bursts throughout this Season 3 episode. The first round launches after Rob takes Kim's Bentley for a joyride without letting anybody know, causing his sister to believe her car had been stolen. While he mostly manages to joke his way out of this Bentley incident, Rob revealing two massive tattoos gets a considerably stronger reaction. Khloé, in particular, has absolutely no qualms about letting her brother know what she thinks about his decision.

#3: Kourtney vs. Kim
"Photo Shoot Dispute"

14 seasons and over a decade later, Kourtney is finally tired of this whole reality TV lifestyle and refuses to prioritize a Christmas-themed photo shoot over taking care of her children. Unsurprisingly, Kim - who planned the event - is not particularly pleased with this development, and blasts Kourtney for being the least interesting member of the family. Containing multiple emotional outbursts and a painfully tense photo shoot, season 15's premiere was completely dominated by Kim and Kourtney's fight, with the sisters barely burying the hatchet by the end of the episode.

#2: Kim Beats Khloé With a Purse
"Kardashian Civil War"

If you are going to embarrass Kim Kardashian, be prepared for a world of hurt! Even though each sibling contributes to the family's businesses, Kim has always been the most preoccupied with maintaining a certain degree of professionalism while in public; sadly, Kourtney and Khloé tend to have other plans. Annoyed by the duo's antics at a car dealership, Kim stormed Rob's apartment armed with a purse and an ax to grind. After letting off some steam on Khloé's shoulder, Kim fled the apartment to a chorus of insults from her sisters.

#1: Kourtney & Kim Get Physical
"Fights, Friendships, And Fashion Week Part 1"

Verbal slaps might be common enough on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," but the family usually holds back from going any further than that. As Season 18 got underway, Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney struggled to get on the same page, leading to quite a few short but impactful arguments. Then, things exploded like never before, as Kourtney and Kim got into a physical altercation that went beyond a swing with a bag. With Kourtney feeling ganged up on and Kim believing her sister doesn't work as hard as everyone else, this blow-up had been coming for a while.
