Ooooh so many. Some of my favourites include:

- The first episode.
- The episode where they all go down to Brinkley Court and Tuppy and some of the others pretend to be off their food and Anatole goes nuts and the following episode where Bertie has to ride off for miles in the rain on a bicycle.
- Most of season 2, particularly the episode where Jeeves left Bertie and Bertie got a crap valet.
- The cowcreamer episode.
- The episode where Bertie meets that couple who try to steal his aunt's pearls and when they met Biffy who had such a bad memory he couldn't even remember the name of the love of his life.
- The one where Bingo pretends to be a commie.
- The one where Jeeves goes nightclubbing in New York for Rocky.
- The one where Jeeves pretends to be Rosie M. Banks and Bertie has to pretend to be a maid.
- The one where Bertie has to steal an African idol from the Basset household.

3. Well, I think all are brilliant Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

My favorites
1. Brinkley Manor- when J&W get Gussie drunk
2. The Full House- montage of Jeeves living it up in NYC alone
3. Jeeves Arrival- for the simple reason that I watched that episode first and was immediately hooked on the series

I think my absolute favorite moment in the show was the bit where everyone converged on the steamship and the boys leapt overboard like some tragic Greek double suicide. Or Thelma and Louise.

Ahhhh, if only they had held hands.

My favorite moment is when Bertie and Jeeves played strip Twister. Can't remember what episode, but I keep replaying it over and over in my head.

My husband actually said something like "Oh my God" when they jumped. You coudl tell he instantly re-imagined the entire series as a tale of persecution and tragedy.

I think I recall that one. Didn't Bertie end up in nothing but his gartered socks and a dippy smile?

And the final scene following that jump:

BERTIE: Eight and a half months without a drink may be a Drones record.
JEEVES: Congratulations, sir.
BERTIE: Well, your jolly good health, Jeeves.
JEEVES: Thank you, sir.
BERTIE: Well rowed.
JEEVES: It's good of you to say so, sir, though there was perhaps a little too much of it for my taste.
BERTIE: Oh, Jeeves, this is not the time for recriminations.
JEEVES: Very good, sir.
BERTIE: My navigation was impeccable throughout.
JEEVES (hesitantly): Very good, sir.
BERTIE: Though I must say, coming across the Great Barrier Reef like that was a bit of a shock.
JEEVES: Do you remember that long, narrow stretch of waterway that you insisted was The Serpentine, sir?
BERTIE (rolling his eyes): Jeeves ...
JEEVES: It was, in fact, as I suggested at the time, sir, the Panama canal.
BERTIE: Jeeves, it was hardly my fault that the compass was of unconventional design.
JEEVES: Again, pardon me for saying so, sir, but most compasses do point north.
BERTIE: Jeeves, let's not start this tedious argument again.
...


Although I must say that, if I had to choose one single favourite, I probably would pick the Market Snodsbury Grammar School szene. And Bertie being hunted by Spode around the Gallery, desperately seeking for that "Eu..." word he has forgotten! I have always felt uncomfortable about Spode, though. As if the character (in the TV series, that is, not necessarily in the books) did not quite hit that particular tone I perceive as satirical.

I thought he ended up in nothing but a yellow T-shirt and a smile (or was that someone else... )

But the scene ends with:

Jeeves: Are you dining in tonight. Sir?

Bertie: Yes, but no fish , I think.

Jeeves: Very good Sir

Smashing scene. I must watch it again sometime.

Where did Bertie and Jeeves get a rowing boat from anyway? And a compass? And how did they surivive rowing around the world getting to England the wrong way? It is questions like these my boyfriend was asking when he saw that ending. It annoyed him, he thought it was daft. But then he doesn't like any of the New York episodes.

Bertie must've traded some of his clothing. At Jeeves's astute suggestion of course
