What, no "Mulcahy's War?" That's OK, I'll vote from the choices given.

D'OH! I am really bad at this.

My immediate thought was "Mulcahy's War" - my favorite of his since the night it first aired.

We may need to do another run-off. :(

That's okay, Rob, I'm having enough trouble just picking from these choices. I can't decide between "Dear Sis" and "Holy Mess," two EXCELLENT Mulcahy episodes.

Bill said...

Hmm, should I pick "Father Mulcahy's War" or "The Interview"? A very tough choice. Wait a minute...

That was easy, Rob. Thanks!

Truth be told, Mulcahy delivers the best line in the entire series in "The Interview," so I probably would have voted for it anyway. "Father Mulcahy's War" is a good star turn for him, though.

Don't feel bad, Rob. It's hard when you have to sift through 251 episodes!

"Dear Sis" is my fave Mulcahy episode and one of my favorite episodes of the entire series. It's a very sweet and poignant story.

I ended up choosing "Dear Sis" because, while it centers around Father, it is not "about" him the same way "Holy Mess" is. Father Mulcahy was an excellent *supporting* character, and that is why I picked the episode with him interacting with others rather than the one focused on him. :-)
