Harold has arrived in the shop and is standing at the counter with a very big smile on his face. He is undoubtedly excited. The agent asks the couple to excuse him and calls Harold over to him for a discrete word “The dustbins are in the Alley at the back” !!!The first huge laugh of the episode but certainly not the last.
Once again we are living Harold’s dream with him and hope that this time he can finally get what he wants, especially given the very snobbish and disdainful behaviour of the Epson couple, whose worst nightmares are realised when they discover that not only is Harold staying at the same hotel but even worse he is in the next room. But deep inside ourselves we somehow know that this episode will be played out in Oil Drum Lane, in wintery Shepherds Bush and not the sunny Balearic Islands.
