The subject says it all.

Which Katrina/Eugene episode was your favorite?

The episodes centered around them are some of the deepest and most touching...in my opinion. I could go on and on but I have to go clean my room :)

Nice topic, Sage. I think... Oop, I have to go clean the kitchen.
Joke. Ha ha.
The choice is Love is In the Air. With For Whom the Wedding Bells Toll close behind.
The reason this comes ahead of such unforgettables as Bells, A Most Surprising Answer, Extraordinary Conclusion is that it's the best as a Eugene and Katrina episode, if not necessarily a the best episode as an AIO show.
It makes you think carefully about where Eugene and Katrina's relationship is going, and what exactly does make Eugene's close friendship with Connie different from his relationship with Katrina. Also, it brings us smoothly out of Blackgaard Chronicles while continuing the themes begun, one of many episodes that contributes to a very smooth flow from the Blackgaard craziness to normal AIO episodes. (Something Novacom mostly skipped.) It leaves us hopeful, yet knowing things can still go wrong.
Plus, for Eugene and Katrina in of themselves, it has some bits of character development, many significant moments, and their relationship progresses neatly.
And alongside all this, there's Jason and Tasha's beautiful romance and Connie's subplot. (Which is a great subplot... BUT CONNIE ISN"T MARRYING JASON BECAUSE SHE CONTRIVED A CRUSH ON HIM UP OUT OF BOREDOM! *gasp gasp* Understood? Good.
In conclusion, it is charming, funny, and handles Eugene and Katrina well.

Out of those episodes, "Unto Us a Child Is Born" is my favorite. However, it's not my favorite because of Eugene and Katrina, so I can't vote for it. My 3 favorite Eugene & Katrina episodes are Naturally, I Assumed, It Ended With a Handshake, and The Right Choice. But it's hard to pick, because their relationship was so long and so fascinating that I love every one of their episodes from Truth, Trivia, and 'Trina to For Better Or For Worse.

It's so hard to pick only 3 episodes! Their whole relationship is one of the best sagas ever written (I'm biased). I picked Truth, Trivia, and Trina because I love how their relationship is budding, and the last set of questions is iconic. "Eugene's eyes are blue. Periwinkle blue." Unto Us a Child is Born is important because Eugene first openly says he loves Katrina (even though she didn't hear it), and the Bible Katrina bought him was another step in him becoming a Christian. For Whom the Wedding Bells Toll is an amazing episode all round. For Better or For Worse is close behind them. :)

This is such a hard question. There are several episodes that I like. The three when Eugene returns are good because it's a mix of memories of Eugene and Katrina (and everyone) and it also shows how much Katrina cares about and loves Eugene even though it's hard.

I've recently been listening to the episodes at the beginning of their relationship. I really enjoyed listening to them and seeing how their relationship progressed and it started the stressful ride of getting together and splitting up, etc.

I don't think I have a favorite episode of them, but each one is different and important to their relationship.

Naturally I Assumed is so funny! I love it when characters get all mixed up and think something is going on with the other person that really isn't. It Ended With a Handshake, For Whom The Wedding Bells Toll, and Love Is In The Air Parts 1 and 2 are good too.

Naturally, I Assumed is funny. I haven't listened to that in several years, but I remember Whit (the old Hal Smith one) acting quite out of his character. But To Mend or Repair wins the vote hands down. That was a very touching episode, with emotion that is quite rare for any of the characters, especially the Meltsners. One of the scenes that made me feel for Katrina/Eugene was in their living room when they're watching the lackluster fishing show.

The Right Choice is entertaining, and I also like Love is in the Air. Very funny, both of them. :P

I like Love Is In The Air, Naturally I Assumed, and that one where Eugene thinks Katrina is marrying Brandon.

That one is called The Right Choice. I love both of those too. :)

It Ended With a Handshake...The Right Choice....For Whom the Wedding Bells Toll.... Especially the last one I mentioned. Something about Eugene panicking over Katrina's proposal, just after Whit was proposed to by Margaret always gets to me. Eugene panicking always is a source of great amusement to me! :)

I listened to "The Turning Point" today. Though the outcome is not enjoyable, I think this was the most well done of the ones I've heard. I loved when Katrina told her dad that she never wanted to do anything like that again. It showed how much she truly loved Eugene by sacrificially stepping out of his life.

I love To Mend or Repair, but there are a LOT of great Katrina and Eugene episodes out there. I think I like to Mend or Repair so much because of the feelings it provoked. We got Eugene crying, Katrina crying, me crying... it was great.

Yes, the hurt in that episode was real and the listener felt it at this very personal moment of the characters' lives. The side plot with Barrett, well, it's odd there's a subplot at all. I mean this is a huge moment with Katrina and Eugene, we're going to have a subplot even though it's not of any comparable importance? But once you get over that it's a good plot with good character and the legendary "100 Things I Hate." By the way, good to have you, PennyBassett!
