What came first?

 Anytime I hear anybody mention the philosophical conundrum of what came first - the chicken or the egg - I remember seeing a scene from Head Of The Class, where cool teacher Howard Hesseman told his class that it was obvious. The egg was a potential chicken, and the chicken was an actual chicken, and since actuality is really real and potentiality is only the idea of being real, the chicken came first.

I'm sure more of life's conundrums would be revealed in middle-brow situation comedies from the late eighties, but it would probably take a lot of work to find them.
