Radio Times: Peggy’s the star at Sid’s stag night.Characters: Christine, Eddie, Jack, Mike, Neil, Shula, Sid
- Neil is not best pleased at the mess Eddie is making turning his compost heap. His excuse is that he is in a hurry – not too pressed to go to the Royal though, Neil observes. He is even more jealous that Eddie is getting a lift to Sid’s stag night, at the Goat and Nightgown, in Jack Woolley’s Bentley.
- At the stag night, Jack has taken pity on John Higgs, his chauffeur. He twisted his arm to have a pint, just the one, because otherwise he will be on fruit juice all evening.
- Christine has called at the Stables to express anxiety about Janet’s “carrying on”; Christine feels it is time to do something about it.
- The stag night is not exactly a rave up, a stripper-gram would be the ideal highlight; with a bit of luck Jack will stump up for one. Neil has taken pity on Higgs; he bought him a pint, just the one, because otherwise he will be on fruit juice all evening.
- Christine feels that not interfering is not an option; maybe some representation should be made to the bishop. Shula shouldn’t really talk about it but she assures her aunt that Janet has acted with complete integrity and has been in touch with the bishop throughout. Also, Tim is not the father of Siobhán’s baby; needless to say she does not reveal who is! The situation will soon resolve itself.
- Back at the stag night, Eddie has taken pity on Higgs; he bought him a pint, just the one, because otherwise he will be on fruit juice all evening. Mike has overheard Jack on the phone to a woman, asking her if she would go ‘all the way’ and concludes that Jack has arranged some entertainment. Sadly they are disappointed; Peggy has been roused from her slumber and persuaded to collect the revellers, because poor Higgs has fallen prey to some strange ‘bug’; Jack cannot get a sensible word out of him. Taxi!? He never thought of that – but then Jack is not thinking too well just now.
