What scenes on TV shows make you laugh till you literally cry?

I just had one, it was watching a "Married with children" episode, it was the one where marcy had to learn to speak in public, and the only way she could was to imagine having sex while speaking. After seeing her have an orgasm during a speech at her bank, peggy said " So that's what one looks like!" and al suffered impotence.

The scene that really had me laughing till I was literally crying was near the end, when jefferson and marcy were on either side of the couch from al, talking about having sex together while al was trapped in the middle, and he did this silent facial expression of misery and horror as they talked about doing each other and marcy getting naked.

Ed O'neil's facial expressions, alrternating between sheer misery and utter horror have me laughing hard now just remember the scene. I literally had tears running down m,u cheeks and had to struggle to keep my eyes open as I watched.

So what scenes are so funny that you laugh till you cry?

If we're talking "Married With Children," the episode where Bud was having sex with his teacher had me in tears. At the end of that episode the teacher had been replaced with a septugenarian, which is where Al storms in and brings the whole thing to a head.

Funniest thing I've seen on television, Newsradio "Super Karate Monkey Death Car." Basic set-up, Jimmy James has a biography fail in America, but it's Japanese translation is a huge success in Japan. So he has the Japanese version re-translated back into American. Engrish at it's finest.

The Married With Children (again!) episode where Steve won't shave his beard off, so he ends up living at the Bundy's. Al does all he can to get Steve to keep the beard as he's been doing all the cooking and housework, but Steve's missing Marcy. Al turns to him and says "Steve, you have a beard, and a family to take care of." Then pulls out a picture of Peg's mother so that he won't get horny.

There are some scenes from All in the Family that had me laughing uncontrollably. Many of them had to do with Archie and Meathead's interactions.

Not a sitcom, but the first time I saw Bill Cosby's HIMSELF I laughed so hard I fell off the couch.

The episodes with Archie in or visiting the hospital usually crack me up on All in the Family.

I laugh my head off at the following shows: Fawlty Towers, Are You Being Served?, The Big Bang Theory, The Young Ones, Bottom, Three's Company, The Golden Girls, Seinfeld, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Abbott and Costello Show, The Munsters, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Gilligan's Island and The Three Stooges.

I laugh my head off at the following shows:
Bottom,

Bottom has me in stitches everytime I watched it. Even if I've seen whatever episode it is about a dozen times. My favourites were the one with the gas man, where Richie & Eddie think they've accidentally killed him when he comes to read the meter. I think I remember them sticking a fork in his leg and trying to eat him and cellotaping him to the ceiling to hide the body. I also nearly keel over during the Halloween episode where the guys make a deadly home brew, try to conjure up Satan and have giant flames shooting out of their butts!

I did the same. I saw it recently on cable for the first time in many years and did it again.

The Bottom episode with the Halloween costumes (with Richard Richard dressed as a devil) had me nearly fall on the floor laughing. The "Bomb" episode of "The Young Ones" had me keeled over too with Vyvyan using Rick's ketchup on his cereal because well there's an atom bomb fell in front of the fridge. "The kettle killed itself rather than be used by me" - Neil and with Vyvyan eating the tele to avoid the TV tax man... in another episode Vyvyan tries to throw a TV out a set window only for it to bounce back at him "That I did not expect"..

My favorite 'Young Ones' moment would have to be in the episode 'Bambi' (I believe), where they all come downstairs and they've all switched characters, basically doing impressions of each other.  They do a scene like that, then switch back, with no explanation ever given.  Makes me crack up just thinking about it - such a great show!

All In The Family- Archie pantomimes loading a pistol and blowing his brains out while Edith talks incessantly about nothing in general.

Many scenes from Night Court but I can't think of one right now.
