Hyacinth Bucket (whose name she insists is pronounced "bouquet") continually looks for opportunities to climb the social ladder, though she's wedged on a rung just below her sister Violet (whose house has a swimming pool, sauna, and room for a pony) and just above her working class sisters Daisy and Rose. Hyacinth's passion for flawless entertaining unnerves her neighbor Elizabeth, who is often invited to the Bucket home for coffee. Elizabeth's divorced brother Emmet, who also lives next door to the Buckets, tries to avoid Hyacinth because she breaks into song in his presence in the hope he'll cast her in one of his "little theater" musical productions.

During the end credits, we see a table set for a posh dinner. When all credits have been shown, Hyacinth is shown rearranging a fork and a spoon and then putting a name plate on the table. As the camera zooms in on it, you can see that it reads "Harold Snoad" and the words "Produced & Directed by" appear above it (plus a copyright notice below it). See more »
