Episode Summary

Raining Forks
With the King and Worksop in the grip of a common cold epidemic, the Sheriff constructs a plan to take everybody in a seaside vacation; then, once there, the Sheriff forces the peasants to work for him, and build a holiday camp for the King to stay in. Coincidentally, the Merry Men are holidaying in the same place, and upon entering the camp, see the preparation for High Forks Night, an annual celebration of an assassination attempt on the royal family, the explosion of which sent dinner forks into the air. Out of money, the Merry Men need a way into the camp to save the peasants, which takes the form of the Food Inspector – an irritating man who empties out all of Barrington's chips because he measured one 3mm too long - who they beat up, and Marian impersonates. They infiltrate the camp, and Marian gets the escape plan to Snooker. The Sheriff becomes suspicious, and so when the peasants storm into the room infested with Multi-Coloured Pimple Plague, which a disguised Marian uses as basis to tell the peasants to leave, he disregards and burns her fake ID as a sign of dissidence. However, he accidentally throws the flaming ID into a box of dynamite, which triggers a chain reaction to send this year's forks into the air, and the Sheriff and King are caught in its rain. The camp burns down.moreless
