Episode guide
What To Wear When Yachting
Country Retreat

Hyacinth’s attempts to keep Richard occupied in his years of retirement continue. Now she has found him an executive job in frozen foods, and to impress the manager of the company she has contrived a plot involving Onslow and golf.


Onslow (with Daisy cuddling him, hoping for intimacy): "Listen, Daisy, when I promised to love, honour and obey, I didn't necessarily mean every Tuesday."


  • Hyacinth has a great knowledge of golf. She says she wants to play a "full chukka [a polo term] of golf" and that she wants to finish all 16 holes.
  • Continuity Error: When Elizabeth rings Hyacinth's doorbell to return her coffee, the doorbell has a different tone.
