Titled "a Crafts Woman Scorned" on the DVD
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hyacinth dejected by taking second place in a crafts fair tries to do one better than the first place winner. Bad enough to come in second to Lidia Hawksworth, but to know that it will be rubbed in her face is just too much. Of course Hyacinth felt that if she had won her natural modesty would have not allowed her to show off in such a way. On the way home from the craft show, Lidia passes Hyacinth and Richard in a new car. Richard fearing the worse attempts to keep their current car polished but Hyacinth can't be swayed. Hyacinth hatches a scheme to make Lidia Hawksworth think they own a Rolls Royce and convinces Richard to take one for a "test drive".
