    The entire scene in the messroom on the Klingon ship in Matter of Honor is the only piece of Trek that literally makes me "laugh out loud". Klag asking Riker if he needs a female to breastfeed him. Riker indicating that he could handle two Klingon women in the bedroom. Feels very natural and unforced, unlike alot of Trek "humour". Great scene.

    I'd say "Message in a Bottle" counts. There are more than enough laugh-out-loud moments to qualify it as a humorous episode. Apparently, Robert Picardo was trying to cram as many jokes into it as he could. The part where the Doc tells the Mark II to stop breathing down his neck, and the Mark II says his breathing is a simulation, and the Doc says, "So is my neck, stop it anyway!" was written by Picardo.

    So many great moments in that episode. Seven remote-tasing a Hirogen, the Mark II trying to crawl into a Jefferies tube backward... I think I'm going to have to watch it again. :lol:

    "Our Man Bashir" is probably my favorite humorous episode, though. Kira's fake Russian accent and the hilarious bickering between Bashir and Garak never fail to crack me up.

    I forgot about "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy"! Never mind, THAT'S my favorite humorous episode. That is pure, almost non-stop hilarity. I was crying with laughter the first time I saw it.

    During the scene where The Doctor is telling B'Elanna that he can't be with her because Tom needs her and they cut to Tom sitting in the corner I lose it every time. There is just something about the look on his face and the little wave.

    TNG: Rascals, Sub Rosa (it's hilarious if you turn the right parts of your brain off)
    DS9: In the Cards (I thought they did a great job having a comedy in the foreground and the very serious buildup to war in the background.)
    VOY: Author, Author

    And of course every Mirror Universe episode

    While there was obvious fun being had by all, Mirror, Mirror wasn't a pure humor episode.
