Hester determines to cook a roast beef dinner for William's boss Henri and his wife but her poor French makes shopping difficult whilst William's efforts to take charge of a cheese from the ferry lead to its almost being impounded - and the seagulls eat his lunch. When the cooker breaks down Hester uses the Trendles' next door but they come home early, assume the meal is for them and eat it - ending up with indigestion. Written by don @ minifie-1
