Tsar,

For your consideration:
WKRP in Cincinnati (TV Series) Turkeys Away (1978)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0742671/

Feeling left out by all the recent changes, Mr. Carlson decides to launch his own Thanksgiving promotion. With the aid of Herb and Les, the Big Guy turns a routine turkey give-away into a comic catastrophe.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0742671/quotes?item=qt1202266

Les Nessman: [dazed] I really don't know how to describe it. It was like the turkeys mounted a counter-attack. It was almost as if they were... organized!

Arthur Carlson: [Mr. Carlson and Herb come out of his Mr. Carlson's office] As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!

= = =

Second choice in case someone really wants my first choice:

Frasier (TV Series) A Lilith Thanksgiving (1996)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0582328/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0582328/plotsummary

Frasier, Martin, and Niles fly to Boston for Thanksgiving. Frasier and Lilith go together for an interview with the principal of an exclusive boarding school, hoping to gain a spot for Frederick. They are so dogged that the principal agrees to admit Frederick if they both promise that he'll never lay eyes on either of them again. crouchbk

That particular WKRP is so (literally) painful in how funny it is. It made me laugh myself into tears. Yeah. Couldn't stop. Consider it added... with honors!

Tsar,

Thanks.

One of these days, I will share the time I literally had people rolling in the aisle with laughter and tears.

My pick:
The One with the Embryos from Friends

You should add the name of the TV series in the descriptions, because only the episode titles will show in the poll.

Ordinarily, I would add your option to the list... but I feel compelled to do the opposite of what I would do.


I feel empowered now! Off to get that desk job with the general manager of the ((gag)) Yankees. ((throws up into a basket)).

Sorry. I can't keep going on with that ruse. I can't contemplate working with the Yankees. ((They suck)).

Subsequently, I have added your episode suggestion to the list. ((Those DAMN YANKEES! LET'S GO RED SOX!))

Thanks.  Would've done MST The Final Sacrifice, but it didn't fit the criteria.  Sabrina is a wacky show, but it's fun.  Frank Conniff (TV's Frank, of course) actually wrote/produced 4 seasons of it!  There's references to MST throughout it.  :)

The first one that came to my mind is the pilot of The Good Place.

Weird that you posted the link to my list in your post instead of the link to the episode in question.

Figured it out anyways. Added to the list.

Added. Just started season 5 (Vice) of Archer recently. So I have something to look forward to on my march to get caught up to season 11 when it comes out next year.
