    Donnie Fatso is just terrible. The Seven-Beer Snitch wins by default.

    The Seven-Beer Snitch: 3
    Donnie Fatso: 0

    Bart vs. Thanksgiving is a very underrated episode, and one of my favourite episodes of the series. Miracle on Evergreen Terrace has always been really forgettable to me, although it has grown on me. It still comes nowhere close to Bart vs. Thanksgiving, though.

    Bart vs. Thanksgiving: 1
    Miracle On Evergreen Terrace: 1

    Bart vs. Thanksgiving: 1
    Miracle On Evergreen Terrace: 2

    "Miracle On Evergreen Terrace" is so underrated. One of the best Scully-episodes ever. And I do mean that I think it's even better than "Trilogy Of Error". Very interesting twist on the "Everything sorts itself out, 'cause it's Christmas"-cliché. The whole episode is incredibly depressing and ends that way too. Still, it's oddly heart-warming. That adds up to a perfect mix and it's probably my favorite Christmas-themed episode ever. An eternal classic in fact.
    That's not to say "Bart Vs. Thanksgiving" isn't great in its own right, but there's a clear winner for me here.

    Bart vs. Thanksgiving: 1
    Miracle On Evergreen Terrace: 3

    Couldn't agree more with @OldSchoolerSimpsons. Miracle on Evergreen Terrace is a masterpiece, and even if it is, perhaps, not THE best best episode in the Scully era, it's easily one of the best Xmas themed episode (close to Marge Be Not Proud imo) and the more classicish Scully episode (in fact it's one of the Scully episodes that makes me feel like Season 9 has to be considered as part of the classic era and not with the mediocre seasons 11-13). Miracle is well-paced, balanced, but very darked and incredibly sad for a special episode, and it still developped a strong plot with excellent jokes.

    Can't say anything about the other match though, I hate Donnie Fatso but I'm sure it's not the w.e.e., and since I haven't seen Snitch yet...

    This is why I don't like having two go at the same time. Still need votes for both of these.

    This one's so close I'd probably vote the other way on a different day.

    Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? 0
    Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes? 1

    Both episodes are great, but "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" is more memorable.

    Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes was funnier.

    Very, very hard. BCYSTD has The Annual Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence, though, so I think it wins.

    But with that logic, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? has The Homer.

    Anyway, both of these episodes have very well-written plots, but, even though Trilogy of Error is wackier (yep, let's let Marge steal some cars and cut Homer's finger off and screw the consequences on the Simpsons canon), it's funnier and arguably more entertaining overall.

    Yeah, but I find the award funnier than the Homer.

    Trilogy Of Error: 2
    The Seemingly Never-Ending Story: 0

    Considering season 17 is one of my least favorite seasons, this episode was actually a real stand-out and one of Ian Maxtome-Graham's best. Still, "Trilogy Of Error" is better in the term of jokes and is interesting in the way of handling three plots and make them fit together. I think the ending is a bit lazy though.
    Still, "The Seemingly Never-Ending Story has this hilariously odd Mr. Burns-line sticking out: "Dream on, bitch!" That had me laughing almost purely because of how odd it sounded coming from him.

    I missed another one... I like Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? more because I find the plot more interesting than the one in Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes? Both are great, underrated episodes, though.

    Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? 3
    Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes? 5

    As for the next matchup, Trilogy of Error is my favourite episode after Season 8, so there is no matchup for me. The Seemingly Never Ending Story is above average for the era, but I think it is a bit overrated.

    Trilogy of Error is one of the best post classic episodes ever. Seemingly Never Ending is great for it's era, but not even close to Error's quality.
