Basil is delighted when a member of the aristocracy chooses to stay at the Fawlty Towers, snubbing the normal guests who frequent the hotel. What Basil does not know, however, is that the man is not a Lord but a confidence trickster who attempts to steal his collection of rare coins. As Basil's desperation to keep such an 'upstanding' guest increases, he becomes increasingly tolerant towards the man's behavior, only to have the guest arrested in a police raid on the hotel.

When Basil is told that the Morrises are leaving, he goes running after them and his hair is messy. When he's outside his hair is neatly combed back. When he comes back into the hotel it's messy again. See more
Thank you, dear. Thank you so much. I don't know where I'd be without you - Land of the Living, probably.
