Maria tells Mrs Brown why she and Dermot have been arguing so much. She thinks that they should move out of the Brown household, but Dermot is resisting. He is also scheming with Buster to make some quick cash so that he can afford a first home for him and Maria. The Browns decide to make Grandad happy by faking 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.
