  • One of the hotel's guests dies in his sleep but Basil doesn't really notice and just goes about his business, delivering the man's breakfast to his room and then complaining that he was rude and didn't thank him. Polly soon realizes he is dead and Sybil asks another guest, Dr. Price, to attend to the situation. Basil thinks the out of date kippers were the cause, but he's been dead most of the night. Pandemonium sets in when they try to remove the body without any of the guests knowing what has happened. It doesn't quite go as planned.

  • A guest unexpectedly dies during the night. While Sybil, Polly and Manuel try to handle the situation professionally, Basil is concerned only with how it might make the hotel look--especially since he fears being charged with food poisoning.

  • One of the guests has died in his sleep, but Basil thinks it's due to serving him spoiled food.
