* “Say Uncle” is disqualified from the rankings because of the nature of said episode.

** “Rose’s Scabbard” isn’t just my favorite SU episode, I would also put it on a shortlist of my all-time favorite TV episodes. Not that it’s the objective best, it’s just one of those TV episodes I personally think is too sublime for words.
