Fight on a plane:

The dialogue was superb and the Hosts discussion was even better. Top notch.

"A Convenient Misunderstanding" was a great intermediate lesson, mainly because I love telling that story to my friends. Hilarious.

"Fight on a Plane" taught me quite a bit of useful grammar, and I'm still waiting for an opportunity to say, “哟,你当...是你...的!“

I second both nominations, though I find myself feeling 很纠结。 I can't seem to decide which I like better.

3 lessons almost in a row, were particularly entertaining:

It kicked off with A Creepy Guy:

which kicked off a rollicking discussion, 224 comments, probably the most for the year

Immediately followed by A Crazy Ex-Girlfriend:

shortly followed by Romantic Movies and Real Life:
