Storyline

Mrs Warboys' cousin Wilfred, recovering from a nervous breakdown, is staying with her and she asks Margaret to take him to meet her at a live T.V. show recording. He will come to her house. Mrs Warboys knocks a window cleaner off his ladder without realizing it and he lands on the car roof. He comes through the garage into the house in a dazed state and the Meldrews, assuming he is Wilfred, take him to the studio,where he spends all his time asleep. The mistake is only noticed when they return to the house and find Wilfred waiting for them. Victor gets a job as a commissionaire, but is angered by a stroppy client whose wig he throws into the gutter. Written by don @ minifie-1
