Doesn't that episode reminds you of some movie?

No, I'm not talking of an umpteenth parody of An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) or another use of Psycho (1960) screeching violins, but an entire plot that is inspired by a classic movie. If you can count at least 3 sitcoms episodes based on a film (even in a loose way), they're in for the poll...

Overall, which of these movie plots that inspired sitcom episodes worked the best?

I thought there might be some 'Groundhog Day' episodes, but I can only find one.

You might want to reword the following:
Facing accusations two or three protagonists give two different versions of the same event
to
Facing accusations two or three protagonists, each giving different versions of the same event.

'Good one (of course, lol). I'd vote for Rashomon or Pulp Fiction episodes. 

I noticed one small typo in the intro: (edit in bold below; no "s" needed at end)

The list link won't work for me.  Funny, 'cause Ed Jones is having the same problem.
