Ralph and Brian prepare to do battle with 'Nancy Blakeney' ( Joanna Dunham ), buyer for a company. Ralph thinks he can get a major order for packaging from her by turning on the old charm. But Blakeney is fed up with reps trying to wine and dine her, so she gives the lone wolf the cold shoulder. Brian, on the hand, is direct and to the point. His lack of personality charms her, and she arranges to meet him at the Egmont Hotel that evening for dinner. Ralph tags along. He has a shock in store. She only booked a table for two...
The lovely Joanna Dunham's other credits include the filmed series of 'Van Der Valk', 'Sanctuary', 'Born & Bred', and the ill-fated Frankie Howerd sitcom 'Then Churchill Said To Me'. It is fun to watch her warming to Brian's down-to-earth sales technique, though a little unbelievable that she should want to take him to bed. He looks like the sort of man who might nod off in the middle of sex!
Funniest moment - Brian telling Ralph the next morning that he awoke in Miss Blakeney's bed to find the contract - signed - pinned to his vest! "I feel cheap!", he mumbles, leaving Ralph lost for words for once.
