Storyline

Stan's Mum has won a prize - an all-inclusive holiday for two in Spain and so Stan, Olive and Arthur are all keen to dance attendance on her in the hopes that they will be her chosen travelling companion. Eventually it is revealed that the competition's organizer has been arrested for fraud and so there is no holiday after all. Mum was aware of this but she kept it to herself because it was so nice to have all the others waiting on her. Written by don @ minifie-1

''I can't stand people who want something for nothing!''

Mrs. Butler has won as a prize in a raffle a two week holiday in the Costa Brava. The thing is, it is a break for two, leaving her with the difficult decision of who to take with her. In desperation to win her over, Stan, Arthur and Olive start making a fuss over Mrs. Butler, making her breakfast and doing the washing up and so on but it all ends in disaster.

Mrs. Butler then receives a letter through the post however she refuses to share with anyone its contents. To cap it all, Blakey then visits the house to give Mrs. Butler some news regarding her prize...

An amiable end to the penultimate series of 'On The Buses' and a more than adequate exit for Michael Robbins. Robbins grew tired of the show, feeling that it was outstaying its welcome and so did not stick around for the final series, though he did re-appear for the 1973 feature film 'Holiday On The Buses'.

The gorgeous ( and well endowed ) Julia Breck plays the canteen girl. She is probably best remembered for appearing alongside Spike Milligan in his 'Q' shows as 'the girl with big boobs'. She has also appeared in 'The Two Ronnies', 'The Liver Birds' and 'Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em'.

Funniest moment - Stan and Arthur fighting over who will take Mum's breakfast up. ''She's my mum!'' yells Stan. ''Well, she's my mother in law so that means I've got the law on my side!'' yells back Arthur.
