Episode Summary

Have A Break, Take A Husband
Frank and Betty are going on a second honeymoon. Frank is in the station toilet and (as you'd expect) manages to miss the train. He ends up running for it and grabbing hold of the back of the train. After being dragged along the platform for several minutes, he is eventually pulled inside by an angry guard and returned to Betty.

After arriving at their somewhat run-down guest-house, Frank manages to tear the flimsy bedroom lino whilst moving the bed. While trying to disguise this, he manages to destroy most of the contents of his room. He decides to swap his broken wardrobe, dirty bedspread and torn mat with those in the opposite room. The room is occupied by a somewhat effeminate psychic who is convinced the strange disappearance of the contents of his room are an attempt by his dead grandfather to contact him! After a long struggle, Frank and Betty are eventually ready to go to bed. However, the floorboards under the bed are rotten and the bed collapses. Luckily, Frank has given the proprietor a false name and address since this sort of thing once happened before to him and his mother. Betty and Frank climb down the hole in the floor to the hotel bar and secretly make their escape, wrecking the bar and many other things in the process.
