On his deathbed with his family gathered around him, Georgie revisits all of the experiences that shaped his life, from his first days at school, joining the army, falling in love, the birth of his children and the death of his father.
At the end Georgie realises that he has had a wonderful life and looks back with fondness on the experiences that shaped him, before passing away surrounded by his family.

A Portuguese time-share villa has been double-booked, unknown to the company Rep, the myopic tippler Commander “Chitto” Chittenden.
When Mary and Henry arrive shortly after Eve and Leslie, Chitto manages to remain unaware that there is more than one couple on the scene. The confusion is compounded when each couple mistakes the other for the servants.
Henry seems to have the upper hand as he discovers that Eve isn't married to Leslie, but when Henry's mother-in-law arrives it becomes clear that Henry isn't with his wife either and he has to bribe the other couple to impersonate his alibi, Sir Piers and Lady Marchbanks. It looks as though things might work out until the real Sir Piers arrives, followed by Henry's real wife.
