Default A Very Special Episode of...

Yeah...my favorite of the old sitcom plot devices

Does anybody remember the "Very Special Episode" of any TV series?
They used to do them all the time during the Reagan administration...Nancy Reagan started the whole "Just Say No" program and all the TV producers hopped on board to teach us impressionable youth the dangers of getting hooked on diet pills

anyways...I always remember the episode of Family Ties where Alex get hooked on Diet pills cause he's trying to stay awake to study...lucky for him he's got 2 hippy parents...who better to talk you down than former pot heads

post any you might remember in here
or any other Sitcom plot device you thought was funny/stupid

or like that episode of Save by the Bell where Jessie's is hooked on caffine pills and tries to stay up to get good grades. And Zack come in and she's like "OMG I'll never get into Stanford" and starts breaking down and crying and sobing and bitching

lol
they'd end the episode with something like
the entire cast sitting there together talking to the viewing audience and saying something along the lines of

"Today, you saw Jesse get addicted to caffeine pills. Caffeine pills and other drugs are very addictive and can cause many problems. If you or some one you know is using, or might be using drugs there are people you can talk to....

and they'd flash some 1-800 number at the bottom of the screen...

heh

Tracey Gold (growing pains) did one of those after school specials on eating disorders...preaching how everyone should just have higher self esteem blah blah

then she got cut out of most of the final episodes of Growing Pains because she was hospitalized due to her own eating disorder

I don't really remember any off hand, since I usually used that Very Special Episode as a warning to watch something else.
