five favorite tv episodes
1. The One with the Thanksgiving Flashbacks, Friends -- this is, hands down, my favorite episode of tv ever. when Monica wears the turkey on her head & scares Joey, i laugh til i cry. even though i've seen this episode at least a dozen times.
2. No Good at Saying Sorry (One More Chance), Grey's Anatomy -- this is a very new addition to the list for me since it only aired about a month ago, but Ellen Pompeo's acting in this episode blew me away.
3. Mad Cows, Boston Legal -- OMG the paint ball episode. this one is still on my DVR so i can watch it at will. i haven't laughed this hard since the Thanksgiving flashback episode of Friends!
4. Bad Mood Rising, Everybody Loves Raymond -- the infamous PMS episode. when Debra has Ray backed up to the bookcase & he is screaming "A hug??! THIS is not HUGGABLE!!" slays me every time.
5. Three Valentines, Frasier -- i don't even remember the rest of the episode, but the scenes with Niles are hysterical.

five tv episodes that made me cry
1. The Last One, Friends -- it made me so sad when they all turned in their keys. i think this may be the hardest i ever took a series finale. i'm still not sure i'm over it.
2. What a Difference a Day Makes, Grey's Anatomy -- another recent one. the Izzie-Alex wedding episode. if you watch Grey's, i don't need to explain.
3. Hop, Skip and a Week, Sex & the City -- when Harry proposes to Charlotte, i totally lose it every time.
4. Yahrzeit, CSI:NY -- a very powerful & moving episode. i never expected to be so affected.
5. Let It Be, Grey's Anatomy -- this is the one with the elderly couple where the wife finds out she has terminal cancer & doesn't want them to tell her husband and the husband doesn't want them to tell the wife, neither of them knows that the other already knows, because they just want to go to Venice & ride in the gondolas & not have their beloved be anything less than happy.

Ahh. Sean Connery. I never think to put him on my list of favorites...but he is! Especially Hunt for Red October. I like to randomly quote lines from that keeps my husband entertained!

K: I definitely agree! ;-)

Em: I love his voice! Have you ever seen the movie he did with Catherine Zeta Jones? I think it was called Entrapment. I loved that movie!

Stacia: I forgot about that one! I use so many lines from Friends episodes too. "Pivot! PIVOT!!" Hee hee.

Lovebug: How cool is that?!

Gail: Some of the episodes of that show are hilarious. The one where Ray works with his cousin cracks me up too.

Giuseppina: Really?? That is so weird--in a cool way! I swear it wasn't me! I was definitely not out of the state of Florida recently! ;-)

Janet: I never mind when you play along! =) Why am I not at all surprised by many of your answers? ;-) I totally forgot about that episode of ER til you mentioned it; that was *so* sad. In fact, I was so upset (Dr Green was my favorite character) that I stopped watching after that. After a while, I decided to give it another try. That night I turned it on to see the episode where Romano got his arm chopped off by the helicopter. And then I was done for good. LOL! My favorite character from LOTR is Gandalph.
