A Touch of Class
Basil's dream of attracting a classy clientele come true when Lord Melbury arrives. There's nothing Basil won't do for his Lordship, but titles can be deceiving.
Basil's plans for a surprise party go horribly wrong when Sybil thinks he's forgotten their 15th wedding anniversary and leaves. Basil is left to clear up the mess.
Sybil's interest is piqued by a young 'yobbo' staying at the hotel, while a visiting psychiatrist finds enough material for a conference when he encounters Basil Fawlty.
The Wedding Party
Prudish Basil is outraged by the apparent promiscuity going on in the hotel, but it's the guests who end up shocked when they find Basil and Manuel in a compromising position.
