Don't know if I could choose my favorites, but the one I've probably seen the most times would be "I'll Be Waving As You Drive Away" because I love how how Charles has his faith tested. Michael Landon had some great scenes with Reverend Alden and Melissa Sue and it also serves as a huge pivotal point in the series. It's also the episode I began to like the character of Mary a lot more... and the fact Adam makes his appearance certainly helps it gain my vote.

You guys have all mentioned some great ones!
Oh, to pick a favorite though?! That's really tough. I think my absolute favorite ever is Christmas at Plum Creek. I really adore Country Girls though, and "The Award" ranks way
up there for me as well.
We've picked favorites lots of times though, and I'm sure my answer has changed every time! :haha:

Ah...Picking just one....I don't know. Well. I have a lot of favs. "As Long as we are Together" maybe one...but "There's no PLace like home" too, and "He Loves me, He Loves me not" too.
I love them for the same reasons that I love the show: in these epies you have a great family love, a great faith in God and great love of a couple (Charles and Caroline in the first two ones. Laura and Amanzo, but also Percival and Nellie in the last one).
LHOTP has some kind of magic in it. That's the reason I love it to die!

Whew, that's a lot of favorites! I don't know if I can pinpoint exactly what it is that makes these my favorites. I guess it's mostly the spirit of family and community and realizing what is truly important in life.

It's just so hard to only pick one! My top five fav. epies are Journey In The Spring, I'll Be Waving As You Drive Away, As Long As We're Together, May We Make Them Proud, and Home Again. I can never pick just one! I just love how the family pulls together in hard times and how their love always brings them through.
