4. “Turkey in a Can”
(Season 4, Episode 5)
“Turkey in a Can” isn’t the funniest episode of season four, let alone the whole series. But, in terms of plot structure, characters, and originality, few have topped this one. When somebody puts Bob’s Thanksgiving turkey in the toilet, he buys another, which ends up in the toilet as well. The episode then follows Bob’s increasingly obsessive attempts at making Thanksgiving perfect, coupled with the mystery of who the culprit is—a mystery that, surprisingly, has a solid conclusion.
Best moment: When Bob gets defensive.
