I just finished watching this episode. I have no words to express how beautiful, sensitive, human, heartbreaking and even joyous it was! Please, whoever does the intro review for this DO NOT give away the ending! And that goes for everyone else. I can't wait to get the DVD so I can watch it over and over. If this episode does not get some kind of great award, no show deserves one. I'm writing this when I should be getting a publication done to meet a deadline but all I can do is think about this episode. Jeez! It was SO GOOD!
