Episode 10: One Wedding and a Derry Funeral

We're discussing: Derry Girls / Series 2 / Ep4 / 'The Curse'

A bit like life itself, there are more questions than answers in this week's episode. How hilarious are your scones? Pauline has a recipe and you may need a big bowl. Has anyone ever actually done Rock the Boat at an Irish wedding? (Before the Derry Girls made it a thing?) Would you know a hallion from a scallion? 

Are the English really weird and how many red suits does Donna Traynor have? Marie Louise, Jeanie and Pauline ask themselves why they feel more comfortable at a wake than a wedding and just how Snow White is Marie Louise?
