My favourite episode of Grace & Favour is probably the one where the staff is playing a cricket match. I like the part where Mavis suggests to Mr. Humphries.

Mavis - Maybe we should get married!

(spills flour)

I don't know why I like this eppy the best out of all of them. I guess it just grew on me as my fave.

The two 'scary' episodes are my favourites. That's series 1 episode 5 (with the storm at night) and series 2 episode 4 (the petrified pussy, need I say more!). I love them because we never saw the staff get really scared in AYBS, and here we do and it's hilarious.

There are so many good ones to choose from. I would have to say my favorite is "The Trial." I think the jokes are hilarious, and Mrs. Slocombe especially shined in this one.

I like the one with the storm (I call it Unexplained Noises) second best out of all of them. (I actually forgot about that one when writing my original post!!)

I feel the same way Sienna does - those are my favorites and for the same reason.

I title it simply "Mr. Slocombe." I wonder why there were never official names for the eppys.

I made up eppy names for them all that I always try to stick by to save confusion.
I think the reason that there were no names is because "Grace and Favour" was more or less in sync with each other. In series I guess is what I'm saying. Like a day after day thing whereas AYBS? wasn't (necessarily)

I have to say the one where Mr. Slocombe comes is my favorite too.

I like the episode where they have to plant the potatoes in the field (Series 1 Show 5). I call it the "Paranormal episode". LOL

I like the eppy where Peacock is to go on a sit loan-mower and jumped to the edge. Then Jeremy Lloyd comes in his care and calls him Nigel Mansell, very funny.

It's hard to chose because I like them all, but I'll go with the Cricket episode.

I love The Trial episode. Mrs. Slocumbe up there in her long black veil, Mr. Rumbold dressed head to toe in black leather and being thrown out of the courtroom because the judge accuses him of being a hoodlum, Mrs. Brahms playing up to the male magistrate and catching the eye of the female magistrate instead...priceless.

I do wish Grace and Favour had continued for more series/seasons. I enjoyed the show.

I really like all the episodes, but my favorite is the one with the petrified cat, and where they plant the potatoes in the field. I watched it today, and now I have that song that John sings when he's on the tractor, stuck in my head. Plantin tators...Very funny. Tractors Roll!
