Simpsons - "Duffless" (from season 4)

(I know it word for word - along with at least 10 other Simpsons episodes, but this one's my fave, though it's close)

And people still use that on Jeopardy when they don't know the answer to a Daily Double or something

Frasier, season 2, "The Innkeepers." Frasier and Niles buy a restaurant and destroy it on opening night. Just captures everything that made that show so awesome.

Fraiser was a great show. I always loved in Simpson's episodes when Sideshow Bob and Cecil were voiced by Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce.

Who pays attention to the OP?

Fact is, there have been millions on TV episodes over the years. I think listing three or four is doing pretty well, and it's more interesting anyway to see the variety of choices.

No doubt it probably came from Breaking Bad. Crawl Space, Face-Off, and Ozymandias are some of the greatest episodes ever written IMO.

Other favorites would be Lost's first season or the entire fifth season of The Shield.

There are a lot of episodes of Community that I can think of but my choice is Basic Lupine Urology. That's the Law and Order parody episode. The funny thing is that I'm not even an L&O fan at all. I've seen bits and pieces but I don't think I've seen an entire episode from start to finish. Not my kind of show at all, but the Community parody just worked for me.

The Raising Hope episode "Chocolate Wars" is another personal favorite of mine. The show kind of came and went but it's one of my favorite short lived shows. This episode was a mafia/drug movie parody and they nailed it.

Hands down for me 'The Pine Barrens' from The Sopranos Season 3.

It is one of the funniest hours from a cable drama you will ever get. Christopher & Paulie are comedy gold.

He doesn't pay attention to his own either.

Lists are so boring.

Without saying what and why what's the point?

Buffy - Normal Again

Because when I first saw it, all those seasons in, it was like the ultimate twist to the whole series (and Angel too). I see it as the only episode where we see reality peek through. I've often wondered if that was a sly conscious attempt by the writers to inject reality or to just add some temporary chaos.

THE RIFLEMAN, S2 E12 "The Baby Sitter" Written and directed by Sam Peckinpah, it's like a mini-Peckinpah film packed with humor, violence and pathos. Half-hour dramas are truly a lost art form.

ER, S6E14, "All in the Family." Carter and Lucy were stabbed by a psycho patient and the staff had to fight to save their colleagues. Romano and Lizzie were especially good in this episode.

Re: Favorite single episode of tv?

my favorite episode of tv hasnt aired yet, but it's the episode of Game of Thrones when they decide to place Littlefinger's head on a pike but forget to behead him first and just shove it up his ass until it ends up in his head.
