My favorites are:

Fragment, Groucho & Tom, and the last two segments of Forgiveness.

I haven't quite decided whether Fragment, or Groucho & Tom, is at the very top of my list ..... If I manage to make a firm choice between them before Tuesday morning, I will post another comment.

dhsh here again ...

I've decided that *Monologue* is also very near the top of the list for me ... BUT I've also decided that *Fragment* is definitely my #1 choice among the weekly winners.

Hi Andrew,

I'm voting for "Fragment."

seems to be some sort of consensus building here, eh?

this 'outsider' (eavesdropper?) is eager to hear what the 'insiders' (that is, the class) have decided.
