|Harold has completed his chores for the day - or has he?
He is getting ready for a date while Albert busies himself recharging used batteries in the oven.
Albert suggests Harold invites Roxanne home for her dinner - which he does.
After clearly spending a great deal of time preparing for the evening (including lace tablecloth, bread rolls, a candelabra, asparagus soup and two colours of wine), by 8.25pm Roxanne has failed to show and is now almost an hour late
Albert baits Harold throughout - reinforcing that they are better off without 'birds'. Harold becomes angrier and angrier until his disappointment and frustration erupt and he wrecks the dinner table.
