    Miranda decides, after attending a funeral, to do some stuff before she dies, to be remembered by. The pre-scene at the babyshower is horribly funny (buurp).

    She first enters her tax return with the wrong numbers, her birth date is 1914 so she gets the meals-on-wheels service, which ofcourse she kind of thinks as a positive side effect.

    She doesn't know who is being burried and is the first to be invited to give a speech about the (to her unknown deceased) and starts singing (ofcourse). After the funeral she runs of with her embarressed mum and walks into a freshly dug grave (so scarily funny) and decised to do some good deeds stuff. Ofcourse this all goes funnily wrong (really p*****g yourself watching all the efforts, like the parachute-jump for charity). Also she is being considered to be the godmother of Gary's friends Chris and Alison, and since Gary is asked to be the godfather, she desperately wants to be, to tie herself to Gary in at least one way. When she is asked in the end to be the godmother she finds out, she has to be present at the birth, which she finds disgusting and tries her hardest to undo all the good deeds to get out of it. The part when she wants to be caught reading a whole load of Hitler to get out of the godmother gig, is freakishly funny, and backfires completely. To be evil, she punches a vicar, and gets out of being a godmother, but then people recognize her for the good deeds she (hasn't really) done, and makes her mum proud in the end.

    A must-watch. I adore Miranda Hart.moreless
