Storyline

After years of reaction in her widow's love life, Mrs. Slocombe is getting extremely cranky with everybody, even with customers. The notable exception is Mr. Humphries, whom she showers with embarrassingly obvious attention, including presents. When the obsession drives her to alcoholism and it starts raining complaints from verbally abused customers, Mr. Rumbold and Mr. Grace investigate, and end up with psychological advice that the only cure is for the object of her desire to appear to be responsive- poor Mr. Humphries has to sit next to her when the whole floor gets to attend a ballet show of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker...

Quotes

Mrs. Slocombe: [staggers sideways into the office, obviously very drunk] I hope you're not under the impression that I have been out there boozing, Mr. Rumbold. I simply slipped down to the corner to buy a packet of "crisops."
Mr. Rumbold: Without doubting your word, Mrs Slocombe, may I ask you to breath into this bag? And let me warn you that your whole future at Grace Brothers depends on it!
[she breaths into the breathalyzer bag, puts it on Mr Rumbold's desk, and it flies into the air]
