Smutty for Some!
(This episode was recorded before a live studio audience. Well, two people eating a Chinese takeaway).
The ladies in the party go shopping for dresses, whilst the men go shopping for guns. Dr. Winstanley reveals his skill at cocktail creation, and the party enjoy a glass of Pimm's before a night at the opera. There is much discussion of ladies' monogloves throughout this episode.
Our heroes head to La Scala - Violet is very excited at the prospect of four hours in an opera house. Strange goings-on during the famous aria, a glimpse of a marble torso, and some skilful ignoring of sub-plots lead the party backstage, where they indulge in a spot of dressing up, before becoming involved in a fist fight. Whilst the elderly members of the group scuffle, Violet sneakily "acquires" the object of their quest.
Dr. Winstanley demonstrates how any time of the day can be "Pimms o'clock" whilst the rest of the party attend the funeral of a dear, departed friend.
