Violet's Country Cottage
Richard's New Hobby

Hyacinth’s jealousy gets the better of her when hearing about Delia Wheelright's luxury holiday, resulting in her attempting to impress the neighbours by pretending to go on holiday herself. She and Richard pick up holiday brochures for trips on the QE2 and the Orient Express, and she goes to great lengths so that others will see them.  Meanwhile Onslow arrives at the Buckets' to take Richard away from the demands of life with the leading lady.


Rose (deciding to become a missionary): "Well, what would I need for qualifications?"

Daisy: "I think you need a longer skirt."

Rose: "Well, I'd get a longer skirt.  I'd get a skirt that goes right down to the floor."

Onslow: "I bet that one you're wearing's been right down to the floor a few times."
