Storyline

Bren leaves the canteen for the Totally Trivial studios (after being given various drugs to help her relax) and plans to stop at the hospital to visit her mother on the way. The remaining staff tune in to watch Bren, but she does not appear on the show. Bren arrives with a large rubbish bag and a video cassette and tells them that Petula died while she was visiting. They watch her video will in which Petula reveals that there is money in the bag. Dolly is horrified as she has thrown it away, and Stan says the skip lorry will have already taken it. Philippa reveals that the canteen will be closing, and the staff will lose their jobs; they discuss their plans to move on. They hear the lorry arrive and Stan realises the unreliable watch Jean gave him had the wrong time. They retrieve the bag, which contains tens of thousands of pounds which Bren gives out to the rest of the gang. Written by Anonymous
