Yesterday Jezebel posted a supercut of some classic problem episodes, the kind that had a number you could call at the end, that had you, at eight, thinking pot and caffeine pills were some serious stuff.

Yet 7th Heaven, which taught millions of kids the dangers of pissing off your girlfriend’s ex, was snubbed completely. Here are some moments that prove 7th Heaven was one giant problem episode.
