Yes, some of the finest bits of satire only come one out of every
two or three shows. My personal favorite was the episode where the
baby Maggie was sent to the Ayn Rand School for Tots, complete with
"A is A" painted on the wall. The kids had their pacifiers taken,
and then were left to themselves. Maggie responds by collaborating
with the other infants to recover the pacifiers mission-impossible
style from their hiding place without alerting the matron. A fine
example of enforced self-reliance stimulating creativity, industry,
and cooperation.
