Mind Your Language season 1 episode 12: The episode starts with Mr. Brown settling an argument between the EFL students. There’s a little over a week until the Lower Cambridge exams, so Mr. Brown asks each student to answer a question about a given subject. When Mr. Brown asks Taro a question about his childhood, he reveals that his childhood was very lonely because his parents were killed when he was young.
Mr. Brown is able to sympathize with Taro, leading the students to ask if he also lost his parents. He tells them he was left at an orphanage on Jeremy Street (from which he got his name) on an Easter Monday when he was a baby, and the students suggest they can all be “one big, happy family” to give him a sense of belonging. Mr. Brown gives them a tea break and heads to The Red Lion, a pub across the street from the school, to get a drink, but the students go there as well.
Upon hearing that Sid put a baby up for adoption on Jeremy Street, Mr. Brown starts to wonder if he is Sid’s son. He shares his theory with Miss Courtney, who convinces him to talk it over with Sid privately. Mr. Brown meets with Sid and his girlfriend at The Red Lion and offers to pay for their wedding, afraid that he is illegitimate. However, as he asks Sid and Lil about the baby they put up for adoption, he confirms that there’s no possible way he could be their child: the baby they left at the orphanage was a girl.
