    Episode #84. "The Puppy Episode" is the hour-long episode in which Ellen Morgan realizes that she's a lesbian and comes out of the closet.

    As for the cancellation of the show, I believe Ellen herself thinks it has to do with that. But I don't. The show had really changed after she came out. She went from her apartment to a house, she left Buy the Book (which becomes a main focus in seasons 2-4). Also her friends appear less and less in the show. Ellen has a steady girlfriend, which I personally liked, but it was Ellen trying to find herself that was so funny to me. She had found herself and for a season we watched that. Ultimately, it came down to the ratings, I believe. Some people were turned off for the reasons I mentioned.

    Season 4 (which contains The Puppy Episode) is out on DVD on Tuesday 26th September - mine came in the post today

    Well worth buying if you want to see that episode.

    Yah, as has been said, that's the Puppy Episode.
    If you're interested in more of the background story of that episode and also about the cancellation of the show, there is a vhs tape around called The Real Ellen Story.
