    The MASH episode "Perchance to Dream" always stuck in my head as a classic, but maybe not popular episode.

    St. Elsewhere - finale...Dr. Westphal's autistic son dreamed up the whole thing
    LA Law - Rosiland falls down the elevator shaft
    Lost - Walkabout
    MASH - Supply line is cut (a personal favorite)
    Seinfeld - Too many to mention (Chinese Rest, Keith Hernandez (second spitter))
    Family Guy - "Shapoopie song and dance number, Road to Berlin"
    South Park - "Christmas in Canada? (personal favorite), Episode where the boys go to Iraq.

    The Contest is the best episode, but, there are so many other great ones that to JUST cite that one would be a disservice to the series.

    Oh, that one always sticks with me...so sad and scary...:eek: heartbreaking...

    What about the MASH episode where they create the imaginary officer "Tuttle?" that is an all-time classic! :up::up:

    Also "Merry Christmas, Mrs. Moskowitz" ep of Frasier-where Frasier and Niles pretend to be Jewish-has been discussed in the Frasier thread...waaay too funny-whenever I watch it I go into spasms....the "fake" kosher wine they make-OMG! :D:D:D:D

    Leave It to Beaver, "Beaver and Chuey". Eddie teaches Beaver a phrase to use with his new Spanish friend, and he ends up telling him he has a face like a pig.

    That's definitely a classic!

    I also put 'The Hamptons' in the same class. So many great lines and situations.

    Those are my two all-time fav Seinfeld episodes.

    You had a great list and I was in full agreement until I got to this one. For me, this was a "jumps the shark" moment.

    ST:TNG: Relics and Yesterday's Enterprise

    Here's one most people may not have seen: It's Your Move, which starred a teenage Jason Bateman, and was made by the same crew that came up with Married With Children. There were two episodes that were called "Dregs of Humanity".

    Barney Miller: the one with the Atom Bomb.
