Featuring: Brendan O'Carroll (Agnes Brown).

Mrs. Brown's Big Shock

Distracted by family drama, Mrs. Brown isn't concentrating when she picks up the phone. Unfortunately she's forgotten that daughter Cathy has left her personal taser charging.

Featuring: Brendan O'Carroll (Agnes Brown).

Winnie Wants a Vibrator

Mrs. Brown's next-door-neighbour Winnie is thinking of getting a vibrator, but Mrs. Brown finds the idea of a pensioner with a sex toy ridiculous.

Featuring: Brendan O'Carroll (Agnes Brown).

Mrs. Brown's Handbag

Mrs. Brown has left her handbag at home. However, she isn't afraid to remind us that her show is a live studio sitcom and the pub is closer to her house than you might imagine.

Featuring: Brendan O'Carroll (Agnes Brown).

Granddad's Thermometer Reading

Mrs. Brown is eager to help Doctor Quinn perform Granddad's rectal reading, and the mischievous matriarch can't hide her delight when the procedure goes painfully wrong.

Featuring: Brendan O'Carroll (Agnes Brown).
