37. “Itty Bitty Ditty Committee”
(Season 5, Episode 17)
The weakest of the last six season five episodes (the best string of episodes in the show’s history), “Itty Bitty Ditty Committee” is just OK for most of its runtime. That is, until it gets to a scene that reveals how central Gene’s keyboard is to his character. This moment, which manages to make a prop that’s been with the show since the beginning poignant, is an episode-saver.
Best moment: When hungry Tina gets hostile.
