Both Edina and Patsy falling into the graves wasn't planned until the last moment. The original plan was for just Eddie to fall into her father's coffin, and Patsy fall in with her trying to pull her out. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Patsy: Do you want some ecstasy Eddy?
Eddie: Are you mad, darling? Nobody's taking that any more. People have been dragged from raves bleeding from every orifice.
Patsy: This isn't a rave. It's a "happening".
Eddie: Don't force to take it, Pats. I promised Saffy I wouldn't, darling.
Patsy: She'll never find out. She didn't scare me.
Saffie: Mum! Keep the noise down.

The most humor you can get from a darker themed episode
7 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"Death" concerns the passing of Edina's father, and is obviously a darker episode. Saffy is very upset and sad, but Mrs. M. seems to be coping (especially if there's a puzzler around.) Edina doesn't seem to care that her father has died, and can be seen at her self-absorbed worst. In fact, she goes art shopping instead of grieving. During her quest for art she encounters a snooty art gallery assistant (Natascha Taylor McElhone), and forgets to pick up Patsy from another stay in the hospital. The next day finds Marshall paying his respects with his new therapist girlfriend, Sondra (Gwen Humble), and the arrival of the coffin which is placed in Edina's sitting room for the viewing. Bubble attends the funeral to represent Edina. However, Edina and Patsy show up anyway; drunk and stumbling. Llewella Gideon (the nurse from "Hospital") returns in this episode to give Edina a mummy mud-wrap.
