Well, isn't this a tough one. A bunch of great stuff here.

Riley Wuz Here
King Ramses's Curse
Two Face (Part 2)
Thanksgiving Special

These are all really good and I almost put Batman at the 2, but I love that Courage episode, so I'm gonna put it there.

King Ramses Curse
Two-Face
Riley Wuz Here
Thanksgiving Special

These are all good episodes. I feel like The Boondocks episode could rate higher if I had watched it more recently, but I haven't really touched it since it ended.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

"Two Face (Part 2)"
"Riley Wuz Here"
"Thanksgiving Special"
"King Ramses's Curse"

Spoiler
"Two Face (Part 2)" - Fascinating exploration of Harvey's and Bruce's psyches, particularly Harvey's obsession with order and certainty born out of losing control over his life and Bruce's guilt over not being able to help his friend just like his inability to save his parents. Harvey's mental illness is really disturbing in how believable it is, and it's heartbreaking to see how far he's fallen, though the episode shows he still has a little bit of humanity left in him.

"Riley Wux Here" - A really sweet episode with a hilarious parody of Bob Ross helping Riley become a more constructive artist, leading to an emotional ending where he proves to Grandad he was the graffiti artist by painting a mural of his parents on their house. Huey's BET binge to see if black television can wreck you is hilarious too, though the ending of that subplot could've been funnier.

"The Thanksgiving Special" - Hilarious parody of Trump and a bunch of pop stars and overall a lot of fun shenanigans with a heartfelt message about family and togetherness being the most important thing about Thanksgiving. Also, spoonboning always makes me laugh. That became a meme between me and VLord after the first time we watched this episode.

"King Ramses Curse" - This was one of my favorite Courage episodes as a kid because Ramses was so creepy and that song he tries to torture them with is kinda catchy. Rewatching it now, though, it's not that funny and its certainly not as content-filled as the other episodes in this round. Though Eustace's "what's yer offer" remark is a great recurring gag that should definitely be a meme.
