Hester agrees to act as courier for a bus load of Brits who are thinking of buying French properties on a tour organized by the mayor's garlic-breathing secretary Madame Lapine, who still carries a torch for him. Hester allows the passengers, including the annoying self-styled Lothario Cyril Ormerod, to use the Fields' toilet. This is a bad idea as the house's volatile plumbing system is about to erupt.
