    i love this episode. touching, well-written, & i cry everytime i see it. definately one of my favorites. sophia's character gets some major development, & estelle's performance in the last few minutes is well worth an emmy. very sad, yet it has it's funny moments, like the funeral where everyone can't keep their eyes off of phil in his teddy. in some ways, ebbtide's revenge reminds me of steel magnolias.

    i really don't know what else to say regarding this. i WILL repeat my suggestion of keeping tissues nearby, because you'll be a blubbering mess when it's over. that's it.moreless

    I thought it was beautiful to see Sophia trying to come to terms with Phil. I thought it was really funny when they look into the casket and he was wearing a teddy. That was funny and touching at the same time. I thought it wasnice at the end when Sophia reveals she still loved Phil despite who he was.
