Episode Summary

A Traveller's Tale
A group of New Age travellers has camped in Colonel Mustard's field next to the Arlington parish church, putting banners on the church roof and causing a collapse in local property values. Meanwhile, Vivienne Scarlet has fallen heavily for Dave, the travellers' leader, bringing him up to the Grange, where he finds both love and peace - the latter of a decidedly permanent nature. But is Dave (or, rather, was he) who he claimed to be?moreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Miss Scarlett: (her confession) I thought Dave was wonderful. Someone I could finally believe in. Then I heard him talking to Colonel Mustard. He betrayed me. He betrayed us all, but he made me look like a complete fool- and that's something I couldn't stand. He was so vain. He didn't even realise til it was too late. It was very easy. All I had to do was wipe my prints from the handle and slip back into the drawing room. I thought I could get away with it. After all, I was the only one who didn't hate him.

      • Colonel Mustard: Just keep off. She means nothing to you.
        Dave: Oh yes she does. You know how much I like poor little rich girls.
        Colonel Mustard: I won't tell you again.
        Dave: Really? Oh, and by the way, our little agreement, you know the one we're not supposed to tell anyone about? Wouldn't it be awful if Mrs Peacock somehow found out?
        Colonel Mustard: I doubt you'd do that.
        Dave: Try me. I've got a lot invested in this. I'm using the hippies to bring down the land values, then I'd buy the place up, turf them out and make a killing. It's beautiful.

      • Dave: I'm very devout. I spend ten minutes every morning chanting.
        Reverend Green: Chanting?
        Colonel Mustard: You should try spending ten minutes shaving instead.
        Miss Scarlett: Oh, I don't know. I like the unshaven look.
        Dave: And didn't Jesus wear a beard?
        Reverend Green: So you think you're Jesus now?
        Dave: Oh, no. Definitely not. I cleared that up the last time I dropped acid. Hey, perhaps you should try it.

      • Mrs Peacock: Your latest pet and his cultist friends are ruining this village!
        Miss Scarlett: They're not cultists. They have a deeply spiritual attitude to life.
        Mrs Peacock: And a deeply depressing effect on property values.
        Miss Scarlett: That's all you think about, isn't it, Mother? Money. You're so materialistic.
        Mrs Peacock: Oh, my, my, my. He's teaching you some big words, isn't he? Has he told you what'll happen when you inherit this place and it isn't worth anything? Has he given you a big name for that?
        Miss Scarlett: I don't care. It's only money.

      • Reverend Green: I say, you! I want a word with you!
        Dave: Oh, hi! Nice to meet you. Why don't you... why don't you pull up a crate?
        Reverend Green: How dare you! This is desecration!
        Dave: No, it's not, Vic. It's decoration. I'm sure if Jesus was alive today, he'd love our commune.
        Reverend Green: Blasphemy! Show yourself for what you are. I'll do everything in my power to stop this festival.

    • NOTES (4)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Colonel Mustard: A dose of National Service, that's what that type needs if you ask me.

        National Service is the term used for peacetime conscription into the British Army, between 1949 and 1960. Under the terms of National Service, every healthy man between the ages of seventeen and twenty-one were expected to serve in the armed forces for eighteen months and remain on the reserve list for four years.
