Storyline

Encouraged by Taylor Saffy finishes writing her play,'Self-Raising Flower',about her oppressive life with Patsy and Eddy,who do not share the rest of the family's enthusiasm to attend the opening night. Indeed Eddy unsuccessfully tries to get it banned. However she and Patsy cannot resist turning up at the last minute. The play,with Patsy portrayed by a man,is a roaring success but only because people mistakenly believe it to be a comedy and Eddy and Patsy become celebrities as a result. Saffy also gains an admirer in Kasha,the actress playing her on stage. Written by don @ minifie-1

"Eddie... Eddie? Is it.. is it a beeee?"
7 January 2008 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

"Eddie, find it-KILL IT!" This episode is the absolute best and my all time favorite episode of Absolutely Fabulous. It starts off with Eddie and Patsy doing some with drugs(I could never tell if they were organizing or just doing them) and they start hearing a ringtone that is a high-pitched note. Because they're blitzed and stoned, they freak out and panic only to discover it's on Eddie. Eddie quickly pulls it out and throws it on the kitchen table, then hits it with a wine bottle. Then she picks it up to Patsy's 'realization': "Oh it's a small shoe." Eddie answers the phone to hear her son screaming for help and calls the police.

Patsy, who is the best comedic character to come out of this show, panics,"Not the filth! Not the porkers!" and starts flushing some of their drugs, hiding some of their drugs, burning some of them and flat out swallowing them.

Upon Saffron entering the room without Patsy realizing it, she startles Patsy who screams,"I'm a registered addict!" After the police leave, it's discovered that Eddie heard a rehearsal from part of Saffy's play.

Fast-forward to the play, which Eddie is deeply upset is premiering, and you really had to have seen a lot of previous episodes to appreciate it's hilarity.

Overall, this is the most amazingly hilarious episode of Ab Fab and I recommend it to everyone who watches the show.
