    My favorite is The Romance, when Olivia is wooed by the learned Art Aficionada. (I did think her husband took it a little too calmly when she admitted the guy kissed her).

    One of my favorites is The Typewriter. A lot of twists and turns in this episode.

    Favorite episode...there are so many it's hard to narrow it down. I have a tendency to really enjoy the episodes where someone comes to visit (The Legend, The System, The Genius,The Legacy, The Remembrance, The Pearls). I also love The Thoroughbred...John Boy and Blue win that race by the skin of their teeth. Gets me cheering every time!

    I remember reading in TV guide at the time where Richard Thomas insisted on a mule for John-Boy. The writers complied and added a mule.

    Good ole Blue. If you think about it, it actually makes more sense that he'd have a mule rather than a horse. There's a very humble feel to the show (obviously) and maybe a horse would have been a little too...I don't know..."good" for John Boy (I hope you get what I'm meaning here).

    The weird thing was that Earl Hamner said he had no mule growing up and knew no one else who did.

    It was a definite Richard Thomas notion.

    that's interesting...but I still think Blue mule was a good edition. It's funny to think that the mule was on the show more seasons than Richard Thomas was =)

    "The Family Tree," with Verdie. She was my favorite of the recurring characters. The episode always gives me chills.


    Second would have to be "The Conflict."
