Best. Christmas. Sitcom. Episode. Ever.

It's rare enough for a sitcom to actually be funny, let alone say anything of substance. To do both during the stock "Christmas Episode" is even rarer.

You really only need to watch this clip to get the meat of the thing (but you can watch all 3 parts by clicking through to YouTube if you prefer). If you just watch the 8 minute clip below, all you need to know is that David Brewster is a Vietnam War draft dodger who risked a visit to the States over Christmas (and this is being hidden from Archie).

Gibberish "English" Rock.

This video features a rock song done by an italian comedy group, that is supposed to sound like it's in english, but it's all gibberish words.

It sure sounds like english to me (minus actually communicating any meaning).
