    If you like a two-parted episode, you don't have to say The Box, Part One, or The Box, Part Two. You can just say The Box.

    How about Reprisal and All the time in the world?

    My absolute favorite was Bob. It was nice seeing David Anders speak in his normal voice rather than the British accent. Plus, the little stint with Rachel didn't hurt either.

    I'll do this off the top of my head, episodes that don't leave an impression with me probably aren't in my top 20 anyway:

    1) TRUTH BE TOLD / TRUTH TAKES TIME / THE TELLING

    4) PHASE ONE

    5) MIRAGE

    6) ALMOST THIRTY YEARS

    7) THE COUNTERAGENT / PASSAGE (II) / THE GETAWAY

    10) ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD

    11) COUNTDOWN

    12) PASSAGE (I)

    13) BEFORE THE FLOOD

    14) RENDEZVOUS

    15) PARITY

    Man, I took this way too seriously, I took like a half hour considering plot points/character development. I only managed to come up with 15, all the other episodes I liked were about the same, all above average. I just couldn't rank some of them relative to one another, so there are two ties.

    I too spent way too much time thinking about this.  Here's my top 20, in reverse order, naturally.

    20.  The Enemy Walks In
    19.  All the Time in the World/Reprisal
    18.  There's Only One Sydney Bristow
    17.  I See Dead People
    16.  Passage
    15.  The Two
    14.  Before the Flood
    13.  Remnants
    12.  A Dark Turn
    11.  Almost Thirty Years
    10.  The Horizon
    9.  Page 47
    8.  Maternal Instinct
    7.  Nocturne
    6.  Conscious
    5.  Endgame
    4.  Rendezvous
    3.  Phase One
    2.  The Telling
    1.  Mirage

    Yeah, I don't think a lot of people would choose Mirage as their favorite episode, but since the biggest reason I loved Alias so much was because of the father-daughter relationship Jack and Sydney had, Mirage was a no-brainer.  I cried like a  baby watching that episode.
