How well do you remember the Cheers episode ''Thanksgiving Orphans''?

Insults aren’t the only things that get thrown around in this holiday classic!

"Thanksgiving Orphans," the hilarious season-five holiday celebration on Cheers, is widely considered one of the best Turkey Day comedies in TV history. Cheers later celebrated the holiday again in season 11 with "Ill-Gotten Gaines,"  but "Thanksgiving Orphans" is just flat-out great.

The story takes place largely outside the bar, which is always fun, and the climactic food fight is endlessly rewatchable. Plus, we finally get to see Norm's wife, Vera! Sort of.

This episode is right up there with Woody's Wedding episodes, and whenever Frasier's wife was on.
