  • The time has finally come for Richard to take his early retirement but Hyacinth has no intention of letting him take it easy.

    8.0
    Richard is still very depressed about the whole idea of his enforced early retirement, most particularly at the prospect of spending so much of his time with Hyacinth. Hyacinth, herself, however, has much bigger plans for Richard - she wants him to be an exuctive of a well known frozen food company and intends to do everything in her power to secure the position for him.



    As they always are, Hyacinth's plan is a grandiose one. She has learned that the company president plays golf on a regular basis at the local club and she sets up a devious plan whereby a vest-wearing Onslow is to appear on the golf course looking like a menacing thug. Upon seeing him, Richard, according to Hyacinth's instructions is to eject him forthwith. All goes to plan and Richard and Onslow both do as they are told. The president of the company and his friends are very impressed by Richard's bravado, while Richard himself is just glad that everything went the way Hyacinth wished it. Things go a little haywire, however, when some local hooligans appear on the course and cause disruption but this time it isn't Richard who dispenses justice but Hyacinth herself!

  • poor, poor poor, Richard.... His company is cutting back and he is being forced into early retirement...

    6.4
    Richard is being forced to retire,and is depressed to no end that he will now be with hyacinth 24 /7.. Even Onslow feels sad that Richard won't get a break from her at all...



    Hyacinth is thinking of all the fun the are going to have together and won't bugging him on his last day at work...

    My favorite part has to be when Richard begs his boss to let to come to work for free, so he can be away from Hyacinth for a couple hours...His boss,looks at him like,( are u nuts, its vacation time for u, buddy... (his boss probably has a 25 five year old gf.who lives in in milan.)moreless
