Stan's Cashflow Problem!
27 June 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Flat broke again, Stan borrows from 'Basher', who works at the depot. Basher wants his money back within a few days else he will show Stan how he earned the nickname.

Stan wonders how to repay him. Salvation comes in the shape of Iris, whose mother is moving house. Stan and Jack agree to convey her furniture in their bus.

Stopping off at a bookies to have a flutter, they are horrified to find the bus gone when they leave...

Messrs.Wolfe and Chesney contributed not one script to the sixth season of 'On The Buses'. They were probably too busy with 'Romany Jones', their other hit sitcom of the early '70's. Thanks to writers such as Bob Grant, Stephen Lewis, George Layton and Jonathan Lynn, their absence was not as serious as it might have been.

This episode follows the same pattern as 'Cover Up' in that Stan makes personal use of his employer's property, only to then be found out by Blakey. Rather than give the driver the sack, he simply stops the money out of Stan's wages. You'd think Stan would have learnt his lesson by now.

Funniest moment - Arthur is fixing tiles on the kitchen wall. Nearby, Mum and Olive are baking a birthday cake for Aunt Maud. If I were to mention that Arthur's cement and Olive's icing are both yellow, can you possibly guess what happens next?
