Storyline

Grace Brothers are trying to cut down on costs, which means nobody is allowed to use the lifts outside opening hours and the staff have to pay for any lunch except the sloppiest, most common one. Therefore, the clothes department staff decide to all share the proceeds from selling Mrs. Slocombe's home-made perfume. At first, they try to keep it a secret from Mr. Rumbold, but after he has found out, he actually approves of the selling of the perfume. As he catches a cold and goes home, Captain Peacock temporarily takes over his duties and his office, joining his young secretary in making labels for the perfume bottles. However, his wife shows up, convinced he is having an affair with the secretary. Written by Anders E Lundin
