Storyline

It's a hectic day at Grace Brothers during the cold season. Mr. Lucas tries to get off sick with the help of Mr. Mash, an onion and a bar of soap. Miss. Brahms claims she can't catch a cold for seven days due to several recent flu shots. Mrs. Slocombe is trying to ward off her incoming cold with a dash of rum and brandy. And finally, Mr. Humphries and Mr. Grainger have back ache and "a spot of trouble with the gastric" (Mr. Grainger the latter of course). In order to prohibit anyone from leaving the store, Captain Peacock decides to put Mr. Lucas in the ladies' department to replace Miss. Brahms in the gents'. But how on earth is Miss. Brahms supposed to measure an inside leg, while Mr. Lucas struggles to alter a ladies suit? Written by Nadia Nassar
