12. “The Runaway Club”
(Season 5, Episode 16)
“The Runaway Club” has the feel of an earlier episode, complete with a clever storyline that parodies The Breakfast Club, a strong B-plot, and one of the all-time best Tina fantasies. This one revealed what had been missing in much of season five, kicking off the amazing run of episodes that ended the season.
Best moment: When the Belcher kids are self-deprecating.
