Once again: For your Thanksgiving viewing pleasure: One of the two funniest scenes in 1970s sit-com history*

Here's on of the things I'm thankful for today.

From 1978, the finale of the legendary “Turkeys Away” episode of WKRP in Cincinnatti. It was written by veteran TV writer Bill Dial, who later wrote for Sliders, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek Voyager.

But no matter how big a fan of any of those shows you might be, you have to admit none of them came up with a line as good as this: As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

For some reason, this clip now sometimes stops about a minute before the end. If your browser won't display the full embedded version, click here to see it on Hulu. The scene begins at 17:12 and ends at 23:36.

*For the record, this is the other one.
