Highlights from first two debates ahead of tonight's face-off

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will face off for a third time on Wednesday night in Las Vegas -- their last scheduled debate before the Nov. 8 election.

If the first two debates are any indication, this final event, moderated by Fox News' Chris Wallace, will be filled with heated arguments, sassy quips and interruptions.

See the highlights of the first two debates below.

"You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women, do you understand that?" moderator Anderson Cooper asked Trump. He repeatedly dismissed his remarks as "locker room talk" before pivoting to ISIS and pledging to "knock the hell out of" the terror group.

But Clinton remarked that Trump is "unfit" to be president, adding, "He has said the video doesn't represent who he is but I think it's clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is."

Clinton had a quick quip after being repeatedly interrupted by Trump. "OK, Donald, I know you're into big diversion tonight, the way your campaign is exploding and Republicans are leaving you," she said. (Credit: Getty Images / Scott Olson)

"Nice, it's one on three," Trump said, after challenging the moderators for not questioning Clinton on the email scandal. Anderson Cooper responded that they had. (Credit: Getty Images / Saul Loeb)



It's something you don't hear often in a debate: an admission of ignorance. "I know nothing about Russia," Trump said, while discussing Vladimir Putin and whether or not Russia had been behind recent cyber-leaks. "I know about Russia," he said quickly, "but I know nothing about the inter workings of Russia." (Credit: Getty Images / Saul Loeb-Pool)

Trump called Clinton "the devil," after accusing her of not winning "fair and square" against Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary. "Between superdelegates and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, he never had a chance, and I was so surprised to see him sign on with the devil," Trump said of Sanders endorsing Clinton.

In response to an exchange about the email scandal, and Trump stating that, were he to become president, he would seek to prosecute Clinton, she responded, "It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country."

"Because you'd be in jail," Trump said, as the auditorium erupted in laughter.

Moderator Anderson Cooper reminded the crowd to remain quiet during the debate.

After listening to Trump talk about his tax plan, Clinton turned to the uncommitted voters onstage and said, "I'm sorry I have to keep saying this, but he lives in an alternative reality." (Credit: Pool / Getty Images / Saul Loeb)

Answering a question about politicians having public and private positions on issues, Clinton brought up Abraham Lincoln's strategy in getting Congress to pass the 13th Amendment as an example. "President Lincoln was trying to convince some people, he used some arguments, convincing other people, he used other arguments," she said.

But Trump argued that Clinton "got caught" lying about her positions. "She lied, and now she's blaming the lie on the late, great Abraham Lincoln," he said.

"Honest Abe never lied," he added. "That's the big difference between Abraham Lincoln and you."

Cooper asked Trump: Did you use a $916 million loss to avoid paying federal taxes? "Of course I do," Trump said. "I absolutely used it." (Credit: Getty Images / Chip Somodevilla)

Donald Trump told moderator Martha Raddatz that he and running mate Mike Pence "haven't spoken" about military intervention in Syria but added that he disagrees with Pence. (Credit: Getty Images / Chip Somodevilla)

When asked about his 3 a.m. tweets about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, Trump said, "I'm not unproud of using Twitter." (Credit: Getty Images / Scott Olson)

One voter asked: Do you believe you can be a devoted president to all the people in the United States? "Absolutely," Trump said. "I mean, she calls our people deplorable ... I will be a president for all of our people." (Credit: Getty Images / Scott Olson)

The final audience question brought laugher and applause throughout the auditorium: "Can you name one positive thing about the other?"

"I respect his children. His children are incredibly able and devoted, and I think that says a lot about Donald," Clinton said.

Clinton kicked off the debate by remarking that Trump "started his business with $14 million, borrowed from his father." He countered that by remarking, "My father gave me a very small loan in 1975." (Credit: Getty Images / Drew Angerer)

Clinton said that Trump "thinks climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese," but he quickly interrupted to say, "I never said that." (Credit: Pool / Getty Images )

During an argument about trade deals and whether Clinton supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership or not, Trump accused Clinton of not having a plan. "You have no plan," he said, interrupting her.

"I do," she replied. Clinton then reminded him that she detailed her plan in a book she wrote. "It's called 'Stronger Together.' You can pick it up tomorrow," she said.

Clinton remarked that she has a feeling she's "gonna be blamed for everything that's ever happened" by the end of the night. "Why not?" Trump retorted. Clinton fired back: "Join the debate by saying more crazy things." (Credit: Pool / Getty Images)

During a disagreement on NAFTA, Clinton told her Republican opponent: "Well, Donald, I know you live in your own reality." (Credit: Getty Images / Drew Angerer)



Trump repeated that the reason he has not released his tax returns is because he is under audit, but he said he would ignore his attorneys' advice if Clinton releases her "30,000 deleted emails."

"I will go against them if she releases her emails," he said. Clinton responded by calling his remark an "example of bait and switch," and said the reason Trump hasn't released his emails is because he "has something to hide." She didn't address the accusation that thousands of her emails were deleted before an FBI investigation into her use of a private email server for official business, but said using a personal account was "a mistake."

Clinton said she has met people who did not receive compensation after doing work for a Trump-owned business. She asked Trump, "Do the thousands of people you have stiffed over the course of your business not deserve some kind of apology?"

"I'm certainly relieved that my late father never did business with you," she added.

"I've been all over the place," Trump said of his various campaign stops. "You decided to stay home, and that's OK." Clinton responded, "I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for the debate. And yes, I did. And you know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president. And I think that's a good thing." (Credit: Getty Images / Joe Raedle)

"I have a winning temperament," Trump said, adding that Clinton's is "out of control." (Credit: Getty Images / Drew Angerer)

"This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs," Clinton said of Trump. He admitted he has made remarks about Rosie O'Donnell, but he quipped, "She deserves it and no one feels sorry for her." (Credit: Getty Images / Drew Angerer)



Clinton said about Trump: "One of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest. He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman Miss Piggy, then he called her Miss Housekeeping because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name. Her name is Alicia Machado and she has become a U.S. citizen, and you can bet she is going to vote this November." (Credit: Getty Images / Spencer Platt)

"She doesn't have the look [to be president], she doesn't have the stamina," Trump said of Clinton. She fired back, saying, "Well, as soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal, a cease-fire, a release of dissidents, an opening of new opportunities in nations around the world, or even spends 11 hours testifying in front of a congressional committee, he can talk to me about stamina."
