WKRP Episode: "Carlson For President"

The sixth episode of season 2, the plot every comedy is required by law to do at some point: a character runs for local office. The freelance script doesn't always get the characters quite right (well, Herb is totally in-character as the sleazy campaign manager), but the episode does have some excellent bits like the Star Wars commercial, the altered campaign poster, Les's Armenians line, and one of my favorite dialogue exchanges from the show, the "muy dinero" bit. Also, the episode contains a bunch of Nixon references.
