Wow. What can I say? Is this my favorite episode? I'm not sure yet, but it certainly is *one* of my favorites. This is where we really, REALLY get to know Al. To see him slide into deeper and deeper despair is very hard to watch. His clothes and hair become more and more unkempt, he looks like he hasn't slept in days, even his voice starts cracking. To say that this episode was well-played by Dean would be the understatement of the century. I generally do not cry when watching television or movies (I don't even cry at funerals), but the final scene in this episode left me a little sniffly, I won't lie.

"If you're lucky, life gives you ONE shot at true love." As I'm sitting by my spouse of 19 years, I realize - Al is right. And I am damn lucky. And then the final scene comes along, and it's time for the tissues.

Yeah, this might just be the best episode in the series. I'll give you two guesses as to what my rating for this episode is. The first guess doesn't count.
