Agnes Brown thinks everyone has gone mad, in the last episode of the comedy written by and starring Brendan O'Carroll. Father Quinn is losing his faith as fast as he loses parishioners. Newlyweds Dermot and Maria won't stop fighting. And Grandad has decided he'd like to witness his own funeral - he's keen to hear all the nice things people will say about him but while he's still alive to enjoy them.

Maria tells Mrs Brown why she and Dermot have been arguing so much. She thinks they should move out of the Brown household but Dermot is resisting. Dermot, meanwhile, is scheming with Buster to make some quick cash so he can afford a first home for him and Maria.

The Browns decide to make Grandad happy by secretly staging his funeral. But their plans start to go awry when Mrs Brown mistakes two Mormons for the men who are supposed to be delivering Grandad's coffin. Then, at the fake funeral, Grandad is horrified to find that no one has anything nice to say about him after all. And the mourners get a shock when the corpse comes back to life. Only a quick-thinking Mrs Brown can save the day.
