Refusing to leave Grace Brothers, she becomes a cleaner and her position is filled by a younger woman. The staff decide to get her back, no matter what it takes, especially since Mrs. Slocombe's replacement has turned out to be a very annoying woman.

Captain Peacock has serious marital trouble. A certain Miss Bagnold is completely infatuated with him and when she joins Grace Brothers Captain Peacock soon finds his position unbearable. He must choose whether he will stay with Mrs. Peacock or not, and is prepared to go to extreme measures to solve his problems.

While impersonating the most dangerous gangster family of the underworld, Mrs.Slocombe, Mr.Harman and Mr.Humphries pull out all the stops to get the police to the store and capture the burglars.
