This episode is one of the most memorable in my eyes. Not necessarily one of my favorites, and certainly not one of the best, but I remember a lot of moments. Of course there's seeing the Efrafans for the first time (particularly Vervain, in my case), the ongoing digging conflict, Kehaar and Hannah flying together for the first time, Strawberry's reformation.

Then there's the moment where Strawberry gets a pep talk from a frog of all things. This one especially stands out to me. I mean, it's barely a pep talk at all, Strawberry essentially talks himself through his problem; he could have just as easily been talking to his reflection. It's so short and simple and almost pointless, but when I think of the series, that scene always comes to mind. Something about the frog's voice and the way Strawberry essentially talks himself out of his funk. I love the way the frog croaks "good luck" as he's leaving. Maybe it's just just because I find it personally relatable, but something about it is very appealing and memorable for me.

I dunno, I just really wanted to talk about that particular moment after seeing it again for the first time in a while.

This is a great time to lift yourself up. Now that you highlight that scene, I also appreciate it much more, because it is when one feels most depressed and finds the strength to move on. The same thing happens to many and when we are alone, we need someone to listen to our problems
Strawberry is a good example of someone useless who no longer wants to continue like this, wants to improve and change. It is a great episode for me too because in it I reflect when I feel inferior to others and I want to prove otherwise. :strawberry2   :pipkin
I love Watership Down!
Everything is fine =) (?)
