Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie Edit

In the movie, Cathy refuses to take over running her mothers market stall which has been passed down to the eldest girl from generation to generation, and since Cathy is her only daughter, Agnes is desperate for her to carry on the tradition. Later, Agnes is accused of not paying a debt regarding her market stall. A bunch of Russian thugs and a corrupt developer learn of Agnes' confession that she temporarily put her children into car after their father died and continued to collect their allowance money, and they use it against her in court. Backed into a corner, Agnes confesses then runs away in shame. The Brown children set off to look for her, but it is Cathy who finds her. As they cross the River Liffey, Agnes tells Cathy that the nuns asked her if she could manage with any of her children and she said "Maybe two", but when the nuns asked her to pick, Agnes couldn't bring herself to make the unthinkable decision, and Cathy compared her dilemma to "Sophie's Choice". Later, while trying to stall for time and allow Buster to bring the receipt that would prove the debt had been paid, Cathy said she would take over her mothers stall when her time came.
