G:TB Thanksgiving Rerun

Back by popular demand...one of the greates WKRP clips ever. I ran this post five years ago on Thanksgiving Eve...

YouTube, that's what. At this time last year I could only describe in words what I considered the greatest Thanksgiving episode in all of television history. Now, thanks to that glorious website, I can actually provide the clip to prove it...I give you five minutes and forty seconds from WKRP in Cincinnati's "Turkeys Away" episode. Gordon Jump's last line is a priceless moment in sitcom history.

THE HULU LINK TO CLIP

"As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."

i'm not saying that's a sloppy post, but fred sanford thinks it's a mess.

COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT - FUCK THAT

T.J. said...

Click the Hulu link for the entire episode. So fucking good.

Loni may have been the J.R. Richards of 1970's celebrity babes, but in her day, she brought the red hot action.

rob said...

she had a stroke?

TR said...

Would you rather I called her the Joe Charboneau of 1970's celebrity babes?

Igor said...

I think you mean J.R. Richard, in the singular. The fireballer who stroked out. Stud.

Although you might mean J.R. Richards of Richards Wine fame, the man who brought us Wild Irish Rose and Catawba. Also stud.

T.J. said...

Bailey Quarters wasn't too shabby either.

rob said...

if you're trying to call her the great but underrated hurler of the 70s, you might go with frank tanana. bonus - it's fun to say.

rob said...

amen to that, teej. i actually preferred her to loni.

TR said...

blasphemy

TR said...

Seriously? You have a problem with this?

Urban Meyer to Ohio State does not interest me in the least. Nor do any of the "How's the family?" jokes about him taking the job. I could care less about this.

T.J. said...

I have wood.

T.J. said...

Balsa wood.

TR said...

not Natalie Wood?

TR said...

too soon?

zman said...

No. "Hon you got the goods like Natalie Wood" occurred 17 years ago so you're fine.

T.J. said...

Elijah Wood?

My sump pump, which appears to be designed by Rube Goldberg and installed by Mr. Noodles, has been running every 38 seconds since late last night. Should I be concerned?

T.J. said...

Has it gotten very far?

rob said...

i hear people talking about sump pumps, but i have no idea what they are, so i assume they're fictional.

T.J. said...

Are they like lovely lady humps?

Mark said...

TJ- Surprised you don't care at least a little about Ohio State & Meyer. Just as a CFB fan. Buckeyes will soon be dominant with Meyer. Also, QB Braxton Miller will be a monster in Meyer's spread option system.

T.J. said...

I mean, by the time he's on the sideline next year I'm sure I will care. It's probably all this back and forth on the interwebz over his hire that has me worn out.

Mark said...

That I understand. It's been beaten into the ground already and he hasn't even (officially) accepted the job.

mayhugh said...

TJ - still chuckling at your 10:22 response.

T.J. said...

Thank you, Mayhugh. Apparently no one else enjoyed it.

zman said...

I enjoyed it too. I was going to say "pumping" instead of "running," but "pumping" would open me up to zmom jokes.

Dave said...

i remember that j.r. richard leg kick. no wonder he had a stroke.

Igor said...

Yeah, good point. It's a fucking miracle Juan Marichal is still alive.

rob said...

i dunno, igor. bruce lee is dead, too. dave may have a point.

rob said...

gtb's new adopted hoops squad will be revealed on friday morning. get fired up.

zman said...

Or this afternoon.
