Summer-Themed Television Episodes: 'Seinfeld,' 'Friends' And More Shows Go On Vacation (VIDEO)

Does peeing on a jellyfish sting really work to soothe the burn? And if you're drinking in the sun all day, can you really call it heatstroke? These are the questions that some of our favorite TV characters have left us with after they've taken vacations.

As the weather heats up and you're dreaming of your own sunny summer getaway, don't forget that TV shows like to vacation, too -- some sitcoms never miss the chance to jet off to someplace exotic, and a few dramatic jaunts have happened on the small screen as well.

Tell us: What are your favorite summer-themed television episodes?
