Of course, they don’t want Sam to take over the trailer park, so Julian tries to get Sam cast in another low-budget adult film shot by J-Roc.

When Bubbles has an infected tooth, he is too afraid to go to the hospital without “Conky,” a puppet he made in the sixth grade.

Like all of the best Trailer Park Boys episodes, chaos reigns once Bubbles is back in possession of Conky.

A perfect sendoff complete with an animated sequence, in this episode, Bubbles organizes a huge stag party for Julian and Ricky. However, when police sirens approach, it turns into a huge escape operation. As well as being one of the best Trailer Park Boys episodes, “F***in’ F***ed Out Of Our F***in’ Minds” deserves a special mention for being the end of the show itself.

The installment is dedicated to John Dunsworth (Jim Lahey), who passed away in 2017. In a world of controversial series finales, Trailer Park Boys managed to stand out among the pack and deliver a satisfying conclusion.
5 “Who’s The Microphone Assassin” — Season 3, Episode 4
The best Trailer Park Boys episodes are an ensemble effort, and “Who’s the Microphone Assassin” plays to that strength. A J-Roc centric storyline sees Ricky and Julian attempting to sell his rap albums at the flea market alongside their “small crimes” projects to get cash. J-Roc’s albums turn out to be a bigger hit than initially expected, so Julian plans to reinvest their money into sponsoring a rap concert for J-Roc.
There are various attempts to sabotage the concert, with Lahey calling on rapper Detroit Velvet Smooth whose music J-Roc has been stealing, and Cory and Trevor witnessing J-Roc masturbating and telling everyone about it. Hilariously, J-Roc ends up having an identity crisis over his career as a rapper due to his race. It isn’t until he gets a pep talk from Detroit Velvet Smooth that he’s willing to retake the stage.
4 “Closer to the Heart” — Season 3, Episode 5
One of the best Trailer Park Boys episodes is “Closer to the Heart,” and it all has to do with the band Rush. In the installment, Bubbles wants to see Rush perform in Halifax, but Mr. Lahey purchases all the remaining tickets to get back at Ricky.

What’s even more, is that through various turns of events, Ricky kidnaps Alex Lifeson, Rush’s guitarist and backup vocalist. It’s a Trailer Park Boys episode that takes a typical Ricky and Julian scheme and blows it way out of the water. Lifeson turns out to be a pretty good sport, eventually letting Bubbles be his guitar tech at the concert.
3 “Jump The Cheeseburger” — Season 7, Episode 7
“Jump the Cheeseburger” is the 7th episode of the 7th season and is one of the best Trailer Park Boys episodes. In this installment, Randy and Phil plan on opening a new business known as “The Dirty Burger.” However, all Randy is truly concerned about is performing a jump with his bike over a large cheeseburger. Randy tries to protect himself during the jump, but his armor still sees him wholly shirtless with elbow pads and shoulder pads, and absolutely nothing for his head or neck.
This hysterical Trailer Park Boys episode also sees a b-plot in which Barbara Lahey is being sent anonymous love letters. She believes they’re from Julian, but Sam turns out to be the culprit. In the end, Randy gets stoned off of Ricky’s “captain cupboard” stash and ends up missing the jump entirely.
2 “The Green Bastard” — Season 4, Episode 4
“The Green Bastard” is one of the best Trailer Park Boys episodes, and it’s also one of Bubbles’ most quotable storylines. When Ricky plans to have a community day in the trailer park, he decides to feature some wrestling. Bubbles takes on the persona of “The Green Bastard”, a wrestler from “parts unknown.”
This episode does indeed end with a tag-team wrestling match between Mr. Lahey and Bubbles, to clearly determine the true supervisor of the trailer park. However, various bits of cheating end up getting in the way. For whatever reason, Lahey and Randy’s interactions are particularly funny in this installment, and every scene Bubbles is in he manages to steal.
1 “I Am The Liquor” — Season 5, Episode 9
By far the best Trailer Park Boys episode is season 5’s “I Am the Liquor.” In this episode, Ricky is preoccupied by bailing Trinity out of jail (like father like daughter?). On the other side of the trailer park, Mr. Lahey goes after Cory and Trevor, and tricks them into telling him about their hash driveway. It becomes painfully obvious that Cory and Trevor can’t be trusted, especially when Ricky isn’t around to babysit.
On the bright side, it does make for some pretty hilarious TV. This iconic episode sees Lahey’s infamous drunk-a-thon, during which he makes the proclamation, “I am the liquor.” This Trailer Park Boysseason 5 episode sees the late John Dunsworth’s finest moments as Jim Lahey, and it remains one of the funniest-ever chapters of the show. While every one of the best Trailer Park Boys episodes is a highlight, “I Am The Liquor” is truly the show at its absolute best.
