Unbearable

The line from BJ and the Bear's theme song, "And best of all I don't pay property tax!" has to be the single best theme song justification for a character doing what he does in a series, ever.

First off, it's just simply brilliant, and brilliantly simple, and yet completely absurd. And it's made all the better that the line is worked into an actual song, as lyrics.

Ahhh, the late 70s.
