  • Daddy is up to his usual tricks and disappearing, this time running loose in a toy store!

    7.0
    Poor Richard is having difficulty coming to grips with the prospect of early retirement and Hyacinth can't imagaine what could possibly be wrong with him. Meanwhile, in a bid to escape Hyacinth, of whom Emmet is now terrified after having endured several cups of coffee, Candlelight Suppers and impromptu singing, he and Elizabeth attempt to get into their car and get into town without Hyacinth finding out where they are going. Naturally, this doesn't work.



    At the same time, there are problems over at Onslow and Daisy's house when they find out that Daddy, who has again gone missing, has turned up in town at a local toy store and has been spending like there is no tomorrow! Naturally, Hyacinth expects Richard to sort everything out and they meet at the toy store to be greeted by Daddy in a space suit and helmet and a rather irrate maganger who insists that they pay a bill for over 200 pounds before they will let Daddy go! Naturally, it comes out of Richard's wallet and Daddy is released. Add to all of this the usual problems with Violet and Bruce and you have yet another classic episode to entertain you!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Hyacinth and Mrs. Nugent enter the toy store, the sign on the door says PULL, but they push the doors in order to get in.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Hyacinth: How do you know he's having an affair, dear? Now, look, you can't ruin a perfectly good marriage and jeopardize your Mercedes on account of some unfounded suspicions.

    • Hyacinth: [To insurance salesman] I do like firms that employ people who wear hats. It's very reassuring to be solicited by a gentleman wearing a hat.

    • Daisy: [Reading a book] What's "limpid" as in "He gazed into her limpid eyes"? L-I-M-P-I-D.
      Onslow: Limpid eyes?
      Daisy: That's what it says here.
      Onslow: Almost certainly a disease of the retina. Little scabs on the retina. You get it from reading too many library books and ignoring close relatives who are dying for a cup of tea.

    • Hyacinth: Try not to make a noise in the bathroom, Richard.
      Richard: Was I making a noise?
      Hyacinth: Look, I don't wish to dwell on it, dear, but it's always been a principle of mine that bathrooms should be seen and not heard.

    • Mrs. Councillor Nugent: (while wearing sunglasses) I can't see a damn thing! Mrs. Bucket? Mrs. Bucket?!
      Hyacinth: (barely audible) It's Bouquet!
