Storyline

Siegfried gets a visit from his old friend, Stewie Brannan, who is on his way home after attending a conference in London. Stewie is in a bit of a pickle, however as it seems that while at the conference, he drunkenly invited the renowned Professor Norton to dinner. The Professor accepted and now Stewie turns to Siegfried for assistance in hosting the dinner. Bernard Wain is a farmer who is sensitive to bad odors and he has taken up James' suggestion of wearing a handkerchief over his nose when required. This leads to a interesting encounter with the local constabulary. Helen plans a special dinner for their wedding anniversary but James has apparently forgotten all about the important date.
