|List of episode|
When Marlene drags Boycie and Tyler to visit her mother Dora, the battle lines are drawn. Spending the day away from the farm gives the staff freedom – well, more than they usually have to sit around doing almost nothing. The only exceptions being Bryan trying his hand at poetry to stop him feeling lonely and Mrs Cakeworthy surfing the net to help him find a solution.
- This story marks the first appearance of Dora Lane in The Green Green Grass. She previously appeared in the OFAH Episode "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Uncle"
