I think original Isle of Man film with the Boxster, Z4, and S2000 is full of warmth and genuine humor. Jeremy's face when James remarks that "some cars feel like they're smiling" is priceless!

Bolivia is always good but when they make the convertible mini van and then use it to set a car wash on fire I find is also a good pick me up

9.01 - Richard's return. Not for the roadworks film although I laugh at a lot of that but because it's the most emotional episode by far and when I've had a crappy day it's good to be reminded that sometimes miracles do happen (and it's great if I want an excuse for a good cry).

Vietnam and Polar eps for me.
Can't help but feel a bit inspired every time I see them.

On top of the ones that others have mentioned, I would have to add 9X06 - the limousine challenge. James is my favorite host, and he gets off some great lines in the episode: "It's an ingenious solution to a problem that never should have existed in the first place", "You pair of utter pillocks!", and when he talks about the police not having the legal right to measure children during the News.
Plus Richard drives his Mustang and compares it to the new Shelby GT500, (Even if he doesn't know the difference between gross and net horsepower.) and Billie Piper taking shortcuts as the SIARPC.

(It's interesting to note that James takes a paintball in the "Gentlemen's area" during this episode and is fine if not overly pleased about it, while Jeremy takes a paintball in the same area in ep 14X05 and is curled up in the fetal position moaning in pain.)

Anyone have a spreadsheet with the episode lists/descriptions they would be willing to email me? I try to remember it all but there are just too many episodes to look at, and I dont always come back to FG to check the descriptions.
