  3. Hi guys! I hope school is going well for everyone and I just want to thank the Adventures in Odyssey team for creating more episodes even though Covid is still around! You guys are amazing! I hope everyone has a great day and an even better week!

  4. Hey Everybody,
    It has been COLD❄⛄ up here in Pennsylvania. We got LOTS OF SNOW!!! I believe we got at least a foot and a half of snow! How have you all been lately?

    1. Down here in Oklahoma, we haven’t been able to break freezing for more than a week! EVEN DURING THE DAY! We’re also gonna get more than a foot of snow this weekend. And of course we’re gonna have a ton of fun!

        1. hey guys, i live in Canada and the temperature went down to -45 degrees Celsius
          (around -49 fahrenheit for you guys) but the deepest snow we had was only around 2 feet high

    2. It has be SOOOO cold here to! I live in Springfield Illinois and I’m positive that we got 1 ft of snow!!!! But it has been below freezing here!!!! Hopefully tomorrow it will be warm enough to play outside with my family!!! I have two sisters and one brother. My neighbor houses are so close to mine that we can play together in the snow. How are you?

  5. I’m never first so why do I try anyways

    Because I’m bored and don’t want to do anything else 😛

  6. I LOVED the Quiet Man!!! I knew right away that they were trying to copy that one voice. I also know who Jim Backus was. Am I the only one?

    1. Oh my goodness!!! I love that one!!! I woke up one morning and my my brother was making breakfast and I was like, “Hey, Squanto Jones the fourth!” And he was so confused! He just stared at me blankly😂

      1. Sounds like me and my brother! How many siblings do you have? I have an older brother, William, who is almost 19 and a little brother, Christopher, who is four. He is ten years younger than me!! No sisters😥

        1. I am the oldest of almost 9. (My mom is due beginning of may). It is me, then 3 boys (ugh lol), then 3 girls (yay), then 2 more boys. We are all really close in age, so it is super fun! I didn’t have any sisters until I was 6, but I prayed for 3 sisters, and God gave them to me! It is amazing to see how God answers prayers

          1. Well, boys can be good!! (I guess😁) We need SOMEONE to protect us!! The Bible does say for men to protect women!

  7. One of my favorite classical songs is Alla Turca by Mozart. It is so good! Ask your parents if you can listen to a recording of it on the internet.

    Do yall like any classical pieces? Which ones?

    1. THAT’S MY FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i also like the William tell overture(i know it’s not classical but i like it) Pachelbel Canon and Pictures at an Exhibition

      1. We have similar musical interests! I love pictures at an exhibition! My sister played it live with her orchestra and It sounded so cool! If you haven’t heard the Piano guys version, you should listen to it. Anything that they produces sounds amazing.

        1. I LOVE THE PIANO GUYS!!!! My dad plays the piano and i got him the sheet music for “All of Me” for Christmas the year before last and last year I got him “Waterfall”.

          1. You like the Piano Guys! Me too! My favorite song is The Story of my life!

    2. I like Alla Turca by Mozart, Fur Elise by Beethoven, Largo by Handel, Arabesque by Burgmuller, and Habanera by Bizet.
      I can also play the last four on the piano.

  8. “Are you speaking metaphorically, sir?”


    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM DYING OF LAUGHTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Lol. My brother has been going around saying, “YOU WILL ADDRESS ME AS SIR! OR SARGENT COMES! OR MISTER COMES! OR BROTHER COMES! OR BROTHER DRILL SARGENT COMES!” Or something like that 😂

      1. Just to let you know,I DO THAT TOO
        Me: You will address me as Sir! Or Mr. Combs! Or Sergeant Combs! Or Drill Sergeant Combs! Or Brother Combs! Or Brother Drill Sergeant Combs!
        My sister:

  9. “Great, all I got is a jaw from a donkey,
    I think I can use this to… bonk ye!” -Samson/Harlow Doyle

    1. There! right there! You did it again!’

      “I’m sorry I didn’t mean to offend!”

      Your comment was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more funny!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THAT PART!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Marvin: But that could be a hundred people! Wooton: I know, eh one hundred? So funny the way wooton said that! My
    brother and I screamed hysterically.

  11. I really enjoyed listening to the episode. I have a TRQ Are you a Christian? If so, do you have a favorite hymn?

  12. “You know I think I’ll just take prayer requests. Chicken, you have any? I got that green beans.”

  13. “Harlow Doyle says someone told him he lost his mind and he wants you to help him find it…”

  14. “Oh, and bring a rope from the garage, too.”


    “I’m gonna tie you to the alter.


  15. “Dad, no offense, but you misplaced your own daughter, you’re wearing Mom’s bathrobe and Marvin’s…tied up.”

  16. “Some of my my best memories are from the boy scout doing all those fun “ing” things. you know like boating, camping, rafting, hiking, falling, hurting, bleeding, yelling for help.”

    “Oh, I didn’t even get to tell him about the “plummeting”!

  17. Before my great-grandmother passed away, she always liked when we played hymns on our violins. She loved How Great Thou Art. What are y’all’s (I think “y’all’s” is a word XD) favorite hymns?

    My two favorites are Come Thou Fount of Every Blessings and The Old Rugged Cross.

    1. I play the violin too, and I also like to play hymns. My favorite one is Amazing Grace.

  18. Does anyone here read world teen? It’s conservative Christian news for young people. There’s also world kids, but it’s more about not news stuff. I found world teen to be a better fit, even when I wasn’t a teen yet.

  19. When are you going to do another “Get In the Show”? I know with Covid and everything you can’t do it now, but it would be a lot of fun for us to do a “Get In the Show”. I love Odyssey!

  20. ” Who do you think it is?”
    “Could it be… Jared?”
    “Mandi, there’s a boy making squirrel noises and wearing night vision goggles at four o-clock in the afternoon, who else could it be?”
    “Good point.”

    1. I got the novacom series for Christmas. One of my favorite scenes is in Grand Opening:

      “AREM, air, hot air, balloon, fly, butterfly.”-Alex

      “AREM, dare’em, scare’em.”-Cal

      “The War of 1812, Redcoats, Red Herring, fish, smelly.”-Alex


      “Boise, Idaho; potatoes.”-Alex


      1. Yes!!! When I used to have the club, whenever I was bored, I would just listen to red herring, or the hour long bonus feature 😂

  21. PRO, we have a new agency page. I cant get the post ink to work. Punch in “Adam Mcarthur” in the search bar. it the second one about Eugene. Sorry hope that makes sense.
    Country Girl

        1. I agree!!! You shouldn’t hide the fact that you are a Christian to supposedly be able to reach more people…You either proclaim yourself a Christian and live it and speak it in everything or you don’t

  22. “We do the only civilized thing we can do.”

    “Let the air out of his tires while he’s asleep?”

  23. Hey! I am back, and my aunt just HAPPENS to have a wet suit that doesn’t fit her so she’s giving it to me! Plus I am going scuba diving for the first time when I turn 16 in 2 years and some months from now. P.S. my dad’s is gonna take me scuba diving!

  24. 1. Has anyone ever written to Adventures In Odyssey? I want to send something specifically to Paul McCusker, but I don’t know how. He has inspired me in so many ways, I want to say thank you.
    2. If so, what address do I write to?
    That probably sounds REALLY weird but I don’t know how else to word it. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me!

    1. Hello,

      If you would like to send something to Paul McCusker, you can just send to the Focus on the Family address and add ATTN: Paul McCusker.

  25. Best Odyssey quote
    (in my opinion)
    “Oh Eugene….
    Your words just slide off your tongue like poetry..”
    “You mean…Melithiously?”
    “I think so”
    Me: how do you spell that?

  26. AIO fans ALWAYS know the best quotes!
    Get this: Bernard actually said: “Well paint me red all over and send me to a four alarm fire with sirens blazing!”
    You probably have already heard that quote though…

    1. lol. 25! Just like I practice the piano forty hours a day!! So much in common!

  27. Hi fellow artists! Just wanted to let you know that the December 30 2020 page is the art page. We need lots of friends to get it up and running. So whether you like sketching or crafting or anything in between, go comment on the art page today ! Thanks!

    1. Oh my goodness!!! My mom told us about it on Friday I think, and now we all LOVE it!!!! We all go around singing the overtime theme song! 😂

  28. “I think he said he loves you all very much.”

    “As only he could say it!”

    “He doesn’t expect us to say it back, does he?”

  29. “Has it occured to you that the reason he’s nice is BECAUSE of that prayer stuff?” Sorry, how do you spell occured?

  30. Doris: so your saying if I don’t go first, you don’t think I’m a lady!?!

    Doris: you don’t respect me!
    Bart: wait, how did we get on respect!?
