Perhaps the greatest episode in TV history: WKRP's Thanksgiving Turkey Drop

    In addition to the classic  "As God is my witness" line, there's a few others including Less Nessman's "A man and his two children tried to kill me".

    One of the greatest scenes of all-time. Les Nessman doing the man on the street reporting, turning the event into a Hindenburg-esque report.

    "Oh my God, they're turkeys."

    "They are crashing to the ground likes sacks of wet cement. Oh the humanity."

    "Happy... Thanks... Giving... From..." (cut to Travis and crew in the studio) "W... K... R... P..."

    Funniest 30 minutes in the history of television.

    That "God as my witness" line is one of my favorite sig quotes ever. Such a great episode.

    I so wish they would issue this show on DVD. It's my favourite all-time sitcom. Nobody else gave us Phone Cops, flying turkeys, fighting mascots ... and yet, a poignantly beautiful tribute to the kids that died at The Who concert at Candlestick Park.
    It was absolute genius.

    That Who concert was actually in Cincinnati.

    There are too many music royalty issues involved, so you will never see this series on DVD.
    Which is very unfortunate.
