Suddenly a fleet of rival taxis appears from nowhere and start pinching all the fares. The rivals are Glamcabs, and they have a secret weapon. All their drivers are very attractive women! Who's behind Glamcabs? It's open warfare and only one fleet can survive!

Well, Ted, where is he, then?

Er...where's who, Peg?

You know very well who. The guv'nor.

You can't see him now. He's out in a cab.

Oh? How do you know?

He told me.

Oh, l remember now. Yes.

- You see, we're rather short of drivers...

- You needn't bother making excuses for him.

The fact is, he'd rather spend his time

playing about with a taxi than with me.

Oh, don't talk nonsense, Peg.

You know he loves playing about with...

l mean spending time with you.

What time? He's up and out before l'm awake

and not back till after l'm asleep.

l haven't had a chance to talk to him

since last Wednesday,

and then it was only with his legs.

His legs?

Yes, sticking out from under a cab.

lt's not fair. He knows l can't get under one.

You can't blame him for working hard, Peg.

There's lots of women who'd be pleased

to be married to Charlie.

So would l, and l'm his wife.

Well...l want to talk to him.

Which cab has he got out?

- 66.

- Clickety-click.

l'll give him clickety-click.

That's right.

Have you got everything on the front?

Yes, now, that little one can go on the seat.

No, l think l'd better take that.

No. No, it had better go on the seat.

That's right. Now, then,

the basket can go on the seat with me, too.

Now...l'll take the umbrella.

Thank you.

That's it. Now, then, that just leaves this one,

and be very careful with this.

lt's real cowhide.

Naturally. lt belongs to a real... Cowhide is it?

Are you sure you haven't forgotten anything?

Like kitchen sink, parrot, husband?

My husband has passed on.

l'm not surprised.

Are you sure he's in 66, Mrs H?

He don't answer.

l'm positive. Just keep trying.

Come in, 66. Where are you?

Where are you, 66? Come on, let's have you.

All right, all right, Sarge, l'm here.

Don't do your nut. What's all the panic about?
