When two doctors register for rooms at Fawlty Towers, Basil is delighted. Soon thereafter, Basil discovers that one is a psychiatrist. Basil is terrified of what the psychiatrist might think of him. The doctor has no interest in analyzing Basil; he merely wants to enjoy his stay at the hotel. Meanwhile, a handsome young playboy has checked into one of the "single" rooms, and Basil is determined to prove that the man has a lady visitor. Another visitor to the hotel is an attractive young single woman. Basil manages to make a fool of himself while trying to avoid what he believes to be the psychiatrist's scrutiny. Written by
