Sybil and Basil are planning to go away for the weekend, leaving Polly in charge. Workmen are expected to fix a new door and block up an existing one. But, unbeknownst to Sybil, Basil has changed the contractors from Stubbs' to the cheaper O'Reilly's. Whilst waiting for the workmen Polly decides to have a rest, asking to be called by Manuel when the men arrive. He decides to leave her sleeping and to superintend the works himself, with disastrous results. As found in the collection, FAWLTY TOWERS.
