I thought I would ask everyone, what their all time favourite PF episode is. It can be from any of the four seasons of the PF, so I'll begin by saying my all time favourite episode is the one called "I Can Get For You Retail", I have never laughed so much in all my life, DC had really good comic timing in that episode. The bit I really liked was when Keith turns to Shirley and says "It all started when I lost my pickle". Another thing I have to say about this episode is that DC was really brave to stand on top of the bus, since he is afraid of heights. There are so many funny incidents in this episode I would end up spending an hour typing this message out, so I'll hand it over to you guys.

It's so hard to pick one favorite, as it always changes.
But I have to say the episode that means the most to me is...
EP. #6 (Love At First Slight). It was my introduction to PF.
I also like 'Some body Wants To Love You' more than ITILY,
because that's the part of the episode I tuned into.
But if I had to pick one that had all the best in one episode...
EP. # 65 (Trial Of Partridge One)
A great combination of comedy and drama.
And the closest they get to being a real family.

I have so many favorites, it's hard to pick just one, but if I had to pick just one it would be the one where Keith flunks sex ed. Laughing

#69 (Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex...But Couldn't Pronounce).
One of my faves. Especially this dialogue.

Shirley "What's wrong with Greely Winger?"
Keith "He was in my sex education class."
Laurie "So?"
Keith "He got an A" Dancing

What a hard question!!! Well...here goes...if I had to pick one, "This Male Chauvinist Piggy Went To Market". The one where Keith and Laurie have the battle of the sexes. My favorite part is:

Laurie: "You know what they're calling me at school? Flip Wilson!"
Keith: "You know what they're calling me? Geraldine!"

I also really love "God Bless You Girl"! A great unreleased song!

I have to say the Christmas episode does it to me everytime! Dean Jagger was sublime! The story was hysterical, and stands up, because I force SOMEONE to watch it every year! And they always enjoy it! I also FORCE people to listen to the Christmas Card...and they always enjoy it!

I love how sucky people get at the holidays! Wink

LOL, Gord, I also force people to watch the Christmas episode. LOL. It's my favorite too. "Keith and Lauriebelle" comes in second for me.

I must admit I like watching the Christmas episode, my favourite bit is when Little the Kid (aka Danny) and Mean Sid (Reuben) are playing cards and Sheriff Swell (Keith) suddenly says :He's bluffing with a pair of sevens, it really kills me everytime I see it - and yes I do watch it during the summer, I'm hoping to get the Christmas Card album on CD in the next couple of months, so I can annoy my mother it when I go down at Christmas, but I'm sure she will enjoy it Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Laura, it's been my experience that Christmas music is supposed to be "annoying" (as in shmaltzy and too-sweet), so I find the CD gets a "pass" when I play it ad nauseum for friends and family. I hope you get it in time for Christmas this year, because it really is a pleasant listen-to. The "adult" me also appreciates it more now than I did then, because it really highlights Shirley Jones more than the other albums do. Smile

I can't exactly choose which is my favorite episode because I haven't seen all of them, just all of the first and second season and a couple episodes from the thirs and fourth season, but at the moment my favorite episode is #43 "I am Curious Partridge" I think it's hilarious how Keith and Shirley get so angry at Danny and chase him around the house. Oh, and Laura, how do you know that David is afraid of heights? I never knew that.

I don't remember David being afraid of heights, but wasn't the Keith character supposed to be afraid of heights?
Like he said in 'Kings Island' episode "If man were meant to sing in high places, he'd been born a soprano." or something like that.
I guess the only way you can explain Keith performing on top of the bus...
Is that music helps him overcome his fear of heights. Think

I think sitcoms back then would put a fear-of-heights joke in without thinking we were going dissect these characters in the years since. That's why there are so many inconsistencies in these shows.

I have to say, though, I remember feeling anxious for them when they performed on the top of that damn bus! It may have made for a great visual at the time, but it certainly added to the neuroses I have cheerily carried into adultry...er...adulthood. Wink

I think DC is indeed afraid of heights--I believe he has talked about it from time to time.

Favorite episode: tie between Waiting for Bolero and Retail. The Christmas episode is also right up there -- classic. "I guess I'll lick my lolly later" stayed in my head from childhood to the first time I saw it as an adult a couple of decades later.
