Mind Your Language Season 2 Episode 3: Miss Courtney is on the phone talking with Parkers to ask for bait and how successful the trout flies areas she is going to go fishing. Sid accidentally startles her as she leaves, making her drop her trout fly. They begin searching for it, but Mr. Brown finds it first and damages it, thinking it is an actual fly. Upon realising his mistake, he offers to buy her a new one.
Albert Collins, an ex-fiancé of Miss Courtney who she hasn’t seen in 25 years, rings her up and says that he’ll be at the school in 30 minutes. As Miss Courtney is telling Mr. Brown about Albert, Ali bursts into her office and tells them that there’s “plenty trouble”. Mr. Brown heads to the classroom, breaks up a fight between Max and Giovanni (who are arguing about slang expressions), and teaches the students about English conversation. A little later, Sid drops in and tells Mr. Brown that Miss Courtney is acting differently. She is excited to see Albert coming, but Mr. Brown accidentally knocks a flowerpot out her office window and hits him on the head. Mr. Brown returns to the classroom to find his students reading inappropriate and irrelevant books, and gives them a quiz where anyone who gives a wrong answer is fined 10p.
Back in Miss Courtney’s office, Albert tells her that he wants to marry her, but his money is currently tied up abroad. Miss Courtney offers to pay for their wedding, reception and honeymoon and let Albert reimburse her afterward, and he arranges to take her to dinner later that evening so they can finalise their plans. Sid sees him as he leaves the school, and warns Mr. Brown that Albert is actually a con artist who used to be in prison with his brother-in-law. Miss Courtney panics when Mr. Brown shares this information with her, but Mr. Brown agrees to handle it. When Albert comes back to the school, Mr. Brown and his male students confront him and tell him to go away. Albert leaves, and as Miss Courtney runs to her window to thank Mr. Brown, she knocks over a flowerpot that falls on his head.
