Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard

After attending a Marilyn Manson concert, Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) terrorize Saffy (Julia Sawalha) with their drugged-up behavior. Gran (June Whitfield) is also on hand to add to the chaos, along with fellow septuagenarians Dolly (Dora Bryan) and Brice (Tim Wylton). When Saffy hires a gardener to redo the back yard, he turns out to be Jago (Crispin Bonham-Carter), younger brother of one of Patsy's one-time drug buddies and scion of a very wealthy family. When Patsy goads Eddy into throwing herself at Jago (and his fortune), he seems to reciprocate. The two arrange a dinner date, much to Saffy's consternation. When they return from supper and things start to get physical, Patsy's presence under the living-room couch complicates things. Eddy and Jago smoke some grass and get into bed, but Eddy's only memory of what follows is a vague druidic fantasy. The romance seems to be a success, but it turns out the hunky outdoorsman's lifestyle might not be as rich or glamorous as Pats and Eddy suspected. Originally broadcast on BBC 1 on September 7, 2001, Absolutely Fabulous: Fish Farm marked series four, episode two of this popular Britcom. Bonham-Carter's cousin, Helena Bonham-Carter, previously appeared in Absolutely Fabulous: Hospital. Although the episode features a running joke about Roger Daltrey, the British rocker does not appear.
