Storyline

The station staff are competing in a bowls tournament and Cecil is ready to board the train taking them there when, at the last minute Mr. Orkindale asks him to stay behind and let Jack go, because Jack is the star player. In fact he's not but he buys everybody a round. Cecil hauls May off the train claiming it is Fate that they were meant to be together but she is less sure. Ethel stands in for her on the train serving soup but an angry Jack finishes the match and hurries home to confront Cecil. Fortunately May has an excuse ready, claiming that she thought Jack was staying behind at Hatley, rather than Cecil, which is why she got off the train. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Cecil Parkin: The floor is a bit filthy. Give it a good sweep.
Jack Skinner: I can't do that, it's Wilfred's job.
Cecil Parkin: Wilfred is not on duty, Mr Skinner. You are. Duty, Mr Skinner - the finest four letter word in the English language.
Jack Skinner: It's not the four letter word I was thinking of.
