Fletch and Godber are members of an outside works party digging a sewerage trench in the churchyard. When Ives is stung by a bee, Fletch persuades Barraclough to let him go to the pub for ointment, where of course he has a swift pint, as well as meeting the local vicar. The prisoners end up in the church, to shelter from a threatened thunderstorm, causing MacKay to believe they have all run off as they are nowhere to be seen when he returns from his lunchtime drink. He alerts the chief officer who duly turns up to find the prisoners all present and correct, making MacKay look very foolish. Written by

Come on, Fletcher, you've been convicted of breaking and entering.
Ah, "entering" being the operative word, Mr Barrowclough. I ain't never been convicted of breaking out of nowhere.
