25. “Gnomes” (Season 2, Episode 17)
Sometimes all it takes is one great joke to make an episode a classic. “Gnomes” is a perfectly enjoyable early season episode of the show, following the kids as they discover a secret race of gnomes that steal the underpants of kids.
But when the gnomes reveal the “business plan” that motivates them to steal underwear, the episode provides one of the most commonly quoted moments in the entire series: Phase 1. Collect Underpants. Phase 2. ? Phase 3. Profit. Anytime someone uses that now legendary meme format to mock a corporation, thank Stone and Parker for it.
Episode MVP: Phase 1: Write the MVP section of the “Gnomes” episode blurb. Phase 2: ? Phase 3: Profit.
