I was crying over the Candy Doll bit. Tears streaming down my face.

Good episode, does anyone know if Betty, Mark and Bono actually leave?

Didn't Mark say he was after his baptism certificate - shouldn't she have started stripping then?

Great episode; the scene with Dermot and his false teeth seemed hard to get through.

EDIT: Ignore me; I just watched the clip back and Mark clicked his fingers which snapped Agnes out of it.

The eldest son and Betty aren't actually leaving are they?

I know they don't get as much to do but I wouldn't want the family to get any smaller.

She did, but her daughter saw her through the hatch and clicked her fingers.

Edit: thought it was her daughter, I need to watch more closely!!

Still don't get the 'buckin' instead of '****in', is that how the Irish pronounce it (the subtitles still say ****in whenever Mrs Brown says buckin' but she says feckin' and ****in' every now and then)?

That was far better than last weeks, which I didn't enjoy much at all.
A few jokes were really obvious, but that didn't stop the being hilarious.

No its not how the Irish pronounce it-
Buckin is used when people don't want to say the f word but want you to know what they mean at the same time- my irish mum in law says it all the time and she isn't actually swearing (according to her) but most people here say it as it is meant to be said!!

Really enjoyed that, particularly Dermot in the Hawaiian shirt, being Elvis I expect during the course of the series Mark and Betty will decide or be persuaded to stay, but that will be the ongoing theme behind the series...

Wonder if this series' arc is about Mark and Betty just as Series 1 was about Dermot and Maria's wedding and series 2 was about the pregnancy. This week's episode was great but I do like how it flip between serious and funny.

I didn't particularly enjoy last week's episodes but thought it was much better tonight. The second half was absolutely hysterical. When this show gets it right there really isn't anything better on TV!

Miles more entertaining than the abysmal 'Miranda'.
This thread deserves page 1 status whereas her programme thread doesn't.

It's still broadcast after 9pm so 'he' would be allowed to use '****in'.

I though last nights was really funny, and was cracking up when Dermot was trying to talk dressed up in that awful shirt and those false teeth!

I was forced to endure the absolutely godawful Miranda before hand and sat stony faced at the TV for the duration. Is that crap supposed to be funny? Miranda Hart has to be the most talentless and unfunny (and also luckiest) woman on TV... apart from Millican.

Yes the comparison with Miranda was telling. Mrs Brown was inventive and funny in a slapstick way whereas Miranda last night seemed forced and was mostly unfunny. Both leads look directly at the camera to make use of the viewer to underline the joke but Mrs Brown's Boys does it so much better.

I was laughing so loud last night that I ended up waking the wife up, which she wasn't so pleased about. Really enjoyed Mrs Brown's Boys last night.
