    Poor, Hospital, and Fashion are easily my top 3 fav episodes because they represent SO much what the show is about.

    Way too many to pick a favourite, but one of the many would be the trip to Morocco and when Patsy called Saffy the little b***h troll from hell.

    Almost impossible to pick just a few but I loved:

    France

    Hospital

    New Best Friend

    Door Handle

    Poor

    & also large bits of The Last Shout, Gay and Panicking

    I forgot "Hospital"...

    What with all the pseudo-running from the papparazzi that Patsy does and then going under the knife to look younger for a magazine. And boy do we ever see that knives were involved in the procedure!

    Eddy's reason for undergoing surgery is much funnier, of course.  Love how they both order drugs from a menu at the hospital. And bubbly...

    All the guest stars, too. Even for AbFab it must be a record. Helena Bonham-Carter, Richard E. Grant, Germaine Greer, Suzy Quatro, gosh!

    OK, enough name-dropping. Love Eddy's subtle t-shirt - much better than hospital gowns. And that caribbean nurse which had appeared before as a masseuse. The magazine gals were on top form visiting Patsy!

    There! I *do* have A favourite episode after all.

    I liked the scene where Saffy has to feel ups Pats for her “self-check”. The two of them in scenes like that are hilarious.

    Small Pening is one of my all time favourites. Patsy, I love you! 'Eddie, is it a beeeeee?'

    My all time favorite: Patsy wakes up with her head on the table, the kitchen has been burned down while she was passed out after a few Bollies. One side of her head is black from the smoke. Excellent performance.

    I can't remember which one it is, but it's the on where Pats, Eddie and Saffy went to, I think, India or something..Pats and Eddie end up passed out for the last three days they were there..? Love that one..
    And Poor especially the end court scene when Eddie busts out with the whole "We don't ALL need nurse-maiding! Why not have a Stupidity Tax? Just tax the stupid people!"
    Great stuff..

    I am partial to Death + Birth. There's no such thing as a BAD AbFab episode.

    Surprised to see so many people who chose episodes from Season 5! Makes me happy

    France would be my pick, followed by a number from Season 2 (specifically Hospital, New Best Friend and Poor). I really loved Small Opening too - absolutely riotous! (Although I think you have to have a pretty good knowledge of the first few seasons to get the play.)

    Yeah I agree, there are no real bad Ab Fab episodes. I think Death and Poor are my two all timers though.

    My favourites are Small Opening "Oh Eddie, is it... is it a bee?" "Oh it's a small shoe!"

    And Panickin' "Minnie? Minnie Driver?" "Yes Minnie Driver is coming here yes," "Is it a dwarf?" "What?" "Is it a dwarf?" "What? Why is she saying that?" "IS IT A DWARF!" "No it's Minnie Driver! She's a huge hollywood star!" "What's she been in?" "She was in good..." "good head hunting!" "I like Minnie Driver she was in circle of friends" "Oh I know who you mean... isn't she one of those ENGLISH actresses, the kind that's always asking for freeeeeee clothes!"

    My all-time favorite AbFab line, and one oft since repeated in our household, has Eddie flying out the door to go travel abroad, and zooming back in almost instantaneously screaming "Passport, tickets, money!" the few little items she forgot...

    The only episode I really don't like is "New Best Friend"....there's tons of funny lines, but asa story I don't like Patsy & Eddie to be apart. It was a needed episode though because you really get how their friendships work.

    As for my favorite definetely "The Last Shout"....(if that counts since technically it's two episodes or a movie)...when Patsy & Eddie are walking down the street in the 60's clothes telling everyone around them to be happy. They both look so good. Plus I really like this 'cause you get to see Patsy's flat for the first and only time. And did anyone notice how amazing the hair was in this episode? Like Patsy's hair and make-up when she came out of the cabin in the black robe was AMAZING! She's never looked so beautiful!!
