#1 Manic Depressive Teddy Bear - "Wishful Thinking"
You just don't get more absurd that this.
This show has prided itself on attacking every sacred institution imaginable. It's ruined Christmas, Birthday parties, fairy tales, parenthood, mellon ballers, so why not teddy bears? What do you visualize when the impossible happens and your teddy bear comes to life? In the twisted world of Ben Edlund (who ends up with three entries on this top ten), Teddy becomes a bipolar nut job. A "girl drink drunk" who shares the same affinity for Busty Asian Beauties as Dean.
If you look past the life sized manically depressed bear (which is awfully hard to do), this is the scene where Jared and Jensen reach new heights of comedic genius. How they end up with the new roles of "teddy bear doctors" and react to the sight of Bigfoot is classic and tops every expression they've had in the entire series. It just doesn't end with them staring with befuddlement at the giant stuffed animal, who watches tragedy on the news and proclaims "Tea parties? Is that all there is?" Sam and Dean have an actual side discussion about how they should waste the bear, which proves to be even more absurd. Then Sam pulls it all together. "Besides, I get the feeling the bear isn't really the core problem here." You think? Sorry, but I'm laughing hysterically just typing that line.
#3 - Eye of The Tiger "“ "Yellow Fever"
Let's face it. If I allowed multiple scenes from the same episode to make the list, "Yellow Fever" would be taking most of the top ten slots. This was a gem filled episode, with one riotous bit after another in rapid succession. I was surprised I didn't collapse from a heart attack after this one. Luckily, the dark ending saved me.
I mean, how could I choose? Do I go with the vicious hellhound chasing Dean disguised as a tiny yorkie, complete with adorable head accessory? Or do I choose the squeamish autopsy with removed heart and squirting spleen juice? What about Dean driving like an old man, refusing to make the left turn? Dean's side-splitting fit of anxiety during the conversation with the dead guy's neighbor, the reptile collector? The taunting book and clock? Dean volunteering for flashlight duty and screaming like a girl over a kitten, then running like the cowardly lion? Dean drunk in the sheriff's office, complete with Sam's hysterical denial and Dean slurring to the deputy "you're awesome"? Dean freaking out over him and Sam being fake FBI agents? Oh, and I can't forget Dean's priceless resignation from his job as hunter with full diva rant.
#4 Sam's Shoe Ordeal, "Bad Day At Black Rock"
It would be impossible to do a list like this without including something from "Bad Day At Black Rock." After all, I've never seen a better screwball comedy from any comedy show, let alone a paranormal drama. In pouring through the scenes there were several great ones, but when doing a "best of" list I'm forced to go with something iconic. While I love the brilliant choreography of the fight gone bad then good when Sam unwittingly grabs the rabbit's foot, Sam's fateful mishap with a smoking air conditioner and curtain rod, and Dean saving the day complete with Batman complex, none of those scenes made my ultimate selection for this list.
