Storyline

An accident with eye-drops at the opticians leaves Victor in a less than charitable mood when he discovers the local Monster Raving Looney Party candidate,dressed as a giant bee,in his toilet. He is even less kindly disposed towards the two kids Margaret has shoe-horned him into baby-sitting and whom he ties up in the garage. The sort of incident that could only befall Victor involving a mental patient and a trip to Casualty leaves him firmly in support of the Monster Raving Loonies. Written by don @ minifie-1

Victor Meldrew: [singing] Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling.
Margaret Meldrew: You must be in a good mood.
Victor Meldrew: Sunday morning, what is there to be miserable about? Sunday morning, the first day of a new week. I'm going to a nice little potter about in the garden where the insanities of life can't possibly upset me.
