Storyline

Godber sends a request to a radio music show to play a record for his fiancee Denise, but it is rejected, probably because it is written on prison notepaper. At visiting time Fletch's daughter Ingrid causes a stir as she seems to be not wearing a bra and Godber is amongst the interested parties. He gets news that Denise has left him for another man, and attacks prisoner Jackdaw, who found the news amusing. His otherwise good record and the mitigating circumstances keep him out of a spell in the cooler, but later that day Fletch is less than pleased to find Godber writing another request to the BBC, this time on plain paper. It's a dedication to Ingrid. Written by don @ minifie-1

Mackay: No. Oh no. The answer to that is no. On the grounds that it could cause embarrassment.
Godber: Embarrassment?
Mackay: To the prisoner's families. The families might've excused his absence by telling the neighbours that the felon in question was abroad, or working on a North Sea oil rig.
Godber: Oh. I see.
Mackay: No doubt your wife, Fletcher, has told your friends that you are on a five-year safari.
[laughs]
Fletch: No, she just tells them ...
