1 John 4:7-12

7Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.

8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

12No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Love is in the Air, Part 1

“Love is in the Air, Part 1” is episode #335 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Paul McCusker, and originally aired on October 28, 1995.


Katrina Shanks and Tasha Forbes arrive back in town, causing all sorts of romantic high jinks with Eugene, Jason, and even Connie.


Love is in the air around Odyssey. First of all, Jason is working under the freezer at Whit’s End when the front door opens. In walks an old friend, Tasha Forbes! At the same time, Eugene has shaved off his measly mustache, anticipating the arrival of his sweetheart, Katrina. The two of them have been corresponding since she left for Chicago.

Unfortunately, when Katrina arrives, she walks in on Eugene and Connie in the middle of an innocent hug. (Connie is trying to show Eugene what an “it’s-good-to-see-you” hug feels like.) Eugene blows Katrina’s lack of a reaction out of proportion. He stumbles all over the place to convince her that there is nothing between Connie and himself and announces to the world that Connie has a crush on Jason. Connie protests, fumes off, Katrina tells Eugene to call her later and leaves, while Jason and Tasha make a diplomatic exit.

Meanwhile, Tasha and Jason are visiting the Connellsville Zoo. Their conversation turns to their relationship and their feelings for each other. They both express their mutual love, and Jason takes things a step further: He asks Tasha to marry him!

While this is going on, Eugene and Katrina meet at their favorite restaurant for an intimate conversation. Eugene wants to know where the two of them stand. Katrina says she doesn’t know and doesn’t want to decide the question right now. Eugene continues to probe and uncovers his worst fear: Katrina is dating another guy!

Discussion Questions

  2. Connie and Eugene got into an argument after Eugene blurted out something about Connie?
    • Was it okay for Connie to be mad at Eugene?

Jack Allen: Well, I think that went as well as could be expected.
Eugene Meltsner: Would a nervous breakdown be suitable at this time?

Eugene Meltsner: I want you to know that there is absolutely nothing between Connie and myself... other than a basic, sometimes-adversarial friendship!
Connie Kendall: Yeah!
Eugene Meltsner: There can't be! I've been waiting for you and she has a crush on Jason! Honest! It was as innocent as... it... could be. Oops.
Jack Allen: <pats Eugene on the back> Nicely done, Eugene.
Connie Kendall: I never said I had a crush on Jason! I don't know where you get this stuff! The idea of a crush never even... I mean... THANKS A LOT, EUGENE!!

Connie Kendall: So, uh, how do you guys know each other?
Jason Whittaker: Well, we're friends who used to work together.
Connie Kendall: Oh, where was that?
Jason Whittaker: Oh, it was at, the, uh—
Tasha Forbes: Oh, uh, boring government work. We were both analysts. You know, white lab coats and pages and pages of manuals.
Connie Kendall: Uh, huh.
Eugene Meltsner: Sounds fascinating!
