5. "Goodbye" -- "The Wonder Years." For all of you who had that one special teacher who encouraged you or for most of us who only wish we had, this is the episode to watch. Kevin's math teacher, Mr. Collins, thinks Kevin, "who wasn't exactly God's gift to polynomials," can get an A and offers him private tutoring. However, when Collins abruptly cancels the sessions, Kevin feels betrayed and purposely fails the test. After a terrible weekend, Kevin discovers Mr. Collins was very sick and had died. He also discovers that Mr. Collins didn't turn in his test. In a final scene, Kevin takes the test again and aces it. Like the "Taxi" and "Office" episodes, there's a great song at the end: Linda Ronstadt's "Goodbye My Friend."
