Ted is shocked to find that the island milkman Pat Mustard has been having sex with his lady customers - including possibly Mrs Doyle - and reports him to the dairy manager. As a result Pat gets sacked and Dougal takes on the delivery round as the manager trusts a man of God. A vengeful Mustard has attached a bomb to the milk float which will activate at four miles an hour and detonate if the speed then falls below four. Ted manages to save Dougal thanks to a decorative brick that Mrs Doyle has brought into the house and Pat Mustard ends up literally hoist by his own petard - and fatally so.
