Hyacinth's detailed instructions make most people avoid her, even if that means ducking to the floor with some flimsy excuse. Patient neighbour Elizabeth, who claims one gets used to it, gets trough another coffee -backdoor, after gardening- but is terrified to help Richard carry the precious China to church hall for a guest speaker, where every room clears as soon as Hyacinth's arrival -the vicar sees her too late- is announced, yet her merciless comments flow unavoidably... Meanwhile Daisy 'borrows' Rose's sweet, cute 17 year-old biker ex, hoping to make Onslow jealous, but he only notices an additional source of free cigarettes, so hoping Richard can get the message trough the sisters pretend he sent for lazy bones... Written by KGF Vissers

[first lines]
Hyacinth: You quite sure my milk went into a clean bottle?
[he shows her his hands]
Hyacinth: Very good. I *do* like a milkman with clean fingernails. You may bring an extra yoghurt tomorrow. You see how cleanliness pays.
The Milkman: An extra yoghurt. Wow! What flavour?
Hyacinth: Surprise me.
The Milkman: I'd love to.
Hyacinth: [a dog barks] There's that dreadful dog again. He's always coming into my garden and making gestures.
