Last Holiday

Synopsis: George Bird's rather lonely, anonymous existence as an underappreciated seller of farm machinery is jarred when his physician informs him that he is suffering from the rare malady Lampington's Disease and only has a few weeks to live. Believing he has nothing to lose, Bird resigns his position and withdraws his modest life savings in order to spend his remaining time in a "posh" seaside resort. There he keeps his own counsel about his condition and meets people who live in a world he could never have imagined existed. Incredibly he finds personal and professional opportunities now open to him that that he never dreamed would be his, but unfortunately he is no position to take advantage of them... until fate lends a hand.

- No go. Too late.

Remember that with the next chap.

Don't leave it too late, Dinsdale.

- Well, so long.

- Ah, but where are you going?

I don't know yet, but wherever it is,

I shan't be trying to sell anybody anything.

Don't go, Bird.

Listen. I'll make it 550. 600!

altogether, I think.

The bank will be glad to advise

about any investment.

I'm not going to invest it.

I'm going to spend it.

- Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you.

- Oh, yes, you would. Even you.

Now, look.

Have you a branch in, um, Pinebourne?

Pinebourne? Oh, yes. Yes.

We can accommodate you in Pinebourne.

Oh, yes, any amount

of accommodation in Pinebourne,

What, uh, class of hotel had you in mind?

Well, what do you think?

Oh, something very reasonable,

I suppose.

- Pinebourne's rather exclusive, you know.

- Oh, is it?

Oh, yes. In fact, it's very exclusive.

- Why, what do they do there?

Meet you at the station and tell you to go back?

Hmm. The Regal Hotel.

- No. That's not what you want.

- Why? What's the matter with it?

The Regal? Well, although it's rather small,

it's very expensive. Select, you know.

Well, it can select me for a change.

Just you book me a single room

at this Regal from tomorrow, please.

And I'd better have

a railway ticket as well.

Certainly. Return, of course?

One-way.

One moment, sir.

Just one moment.

It's important. You are just

the man I've been looking for.

- What, me?

- Yes, sir.

And believe me,

it's a wonderful opportunity.

Won't take half a minute to explain.

Come inside, sir.

Come inside, please.

Mind the step, please.

What's the idea?

You know about that big sale

at Lord Fristover's place the other day?

Well, I went...

and was lucky enough to get some of

his late lordship's clothes and suitcases.

What do you expect me to do, cheer?
