The Eps Are Always Greener

This Friday's ep of "Las Vegas" is called The Glass Is Cleaner, an homage to the famous idiom. So famous that book titles, such as Erma Bombeck's "The Grass Is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank", also honor this old saying.

I reckoned a ton of shows would have had fun with this phrase. "Leave It to Beaver" and "The Brady Bunch" (plus four other series) each used the phrase word-for-word for an ep title. Suprisingly few shows. Plus, those titles aren't so fun. But here's a list of the more interesting episode titles that reference "The grass is always greener":
  • The Bluegrass Is Always Greener (''King of the Hill,'' 2/24/2002)
  • The Glass Is Always Cleaner (''Las Vegas,'' 10/5/2007)
  • The Grass Is Always Finer (''Sister, Sister,'' 10/11/1998)
  • The Grass Is Greener Than You Think (''Summerland,'' 6/22/2004)
  • The Grass Is Sometimes Greener (''Julia,'' 11/25/1969)
  • The Lass Is Always Greener (''One of the Boys,'' 3/6/1982)
  • Your Grass Is Greener (''Bingo & Molly'')
