    Also, episodes like these are often made as "Emmy Fodder"--episodes produced with an eye toward submitting them for later Emmy consideration. It's easier for the Emmy judges to understand an episode that is self-contained rather than watching an episode that is lifted from a continuing storyline (since they likely aren't watching the show regularly and would just be confused). It's also well known (if a bit odd) that comedies tend to submit more "dramatic" episodes, and dramas submit episodes that are more comedic. Perhaps this is to make themselves stand out a bit more in the judging.

    I dunno
    Sadly, this is probably true.

    Also, didn't Donna refuse the soap title of Knots in favour of "it was a night time draaamaaa" at one point? Rude.
