Helen visits the surgery with her dog Dan, but James is embarrassed by his performance when he last saw her at the dance. He nonetheless manages to ask her out to the movies, but once again, their date is a bit of a disaster. The film he thought they were to see has been replaced by a cheap western and Gobber Newhouse, in his cups, provides a bit of unexpected entertainment. Tristan reads with interest in the local newspaper that there may be a historical basis for the ghost that haunts Raines Abbey, given that several monks were killed there several centuries ago. Sure enough, the ghost soon makes another appearance. James has to deal with a farmer who insists his cow was struck by lightning and wants James to provide the necessary documentation to support an insurance claim. Siegfried lectures James and Tristan on their forgetting equipment during their farm visits; of course, Siegfried needs to listen to his own advice.
