It is, of course, utterly impossible to really pick just five, or to rank the top tier, since there are so many classics.  But what the hell, I'll try it anyway.

1.  Cape Feare
2.  Last Exit to Springfield
3.  You Only Move Twice
4.  Homer's Barbershop Quartet
5.  Like Father, Like Clown

I was also able to communicate with two old forum favorites recently, nkpatel1279 and kljackson.  Their messages to the forum were....


Obama -a two term State Senator from Chicago won the DEM primary for the 2004 IL US Senate Race with over 50% of the popular against a crowded field included the safe but boring establishment candidate- Dan Hynes, the controversial wealthy billiniore Blaire Hull and Local Chicago politicians- Gerry Chico and Maria Pappas.  In the general election. the GOP nominee Alan Keyes was the IL version of Christine O'Donnell.  If Obama faced Jack Ryan,Mark Kirk or Peter Fitzgerald- the 2004 IL US Senate Race would have been highly competitive but Obama would have narrowly won due to Kerry coattials.
Giannoulias-a one term Statewide elected official narrowly won the DEM primary for the 2010 IL US Senate Race against David Hoffman- who basically was an outsider/reformer candidate by a 39-34 with Cheryl Jackson- the black candidate from Chicago getting 25%.  Giannoulias won because he was the establishment candidate and he was progressive. Had Hoffman did an effective job advertising his progressive credentials- hed actually win the DEM primary. Hoffman needed to out liberal teabag Giannoulias- clerking for David Boren did not help. I am surprised that Gery Chico did not run because unlike Madigan,Kennedy, he was available to run for the US Senate and he was less controversial and more progressive enough to stop Alexi from getting the Democratic nomination. Chico was a non factor in the 2004 IL DEM US Senate Primary because he had to compete against Obama-who was the rock star, Hull who had the money, Hynes and Pappas who had name recognition and electoral experience.



I'm pleased to see that they're still thinking of us.

God yes.  Granted, I love just about everything that show has done (even with the declining quality).

I voted Rum in the poll, but I've increasingly moved over to gin.

I can't stand gin.  I've tried it a few times, and it's just not for me.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned the Endless Appetizers yet.
Holy crap! That was the most terrifying thing I've read in a long time. I actually felt like I was trapped in Fridays also. It was like something out of a Stephen King novel.

The article itself is one of my favorite pieces of writing in the world.  It's goddam hilarious.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that, unlike The Simpsons, Family Guy doesn't have particular episodes that stick with me, for the most part.  A couple multiverse/time travel ones I remember, but not in the same category as The Simpsons.
