Not every lady is as immune to Rex's charms as Vera. A new couple move in to the Motel; Sir Hector Prince, a self-made
tycoon, and his much younger wife, Wendy. Wendy is bored and restless, and when she sets eyes on Rex, she decides he
is just her type. It's not long before he has an appointment to go and give her a shampoo-and-set in her chalet, while
Sir Hector is out on business.
Vera realises what is going on, and warns Rex that he's playing with fire. But he carries on regardless, assuring
Vera that he knows exactly what he's doing.
Vera's worst fears are confirmed when, during one of Rex's chalet sessions with Wendy (he's giving her a comb-out, but
it seems to be taking an awfully long time) Sir Hector returns unexpectedly early from a business conference.
Helpless, Vera watches as the deceived husband makes his way to the chalet. He is about to open the door - but
hears voices within, and pauses ... Then he retraces his steps, telling Vera that he's just remembered Lady Prince has a hair
appointment today; he won't go in and disturb her and her hairstylist now. Vera realises that this husband is far from
being 'deceived' - he has a very shrewd idea of what is going on.
She tries to warn Rex that Sir Hector is on to him; and a little later, Jane Smith comes in with a message for Rex ...
Sir Hector would like a few words with him in the chalet - as soon as possible.
Expecting trouble, Rex goes - and he is amazed to find that Sir Hector is being perfectly affable. He regrets he
has to be away so much; his wife gets so bored with her own company - that's why he is really very glad she has found a decent
young chap like Rex to escort her ...
"Just don't overstep the mark, that's all."
When Rex returns to the Salon, all smiles, Vera says sarcastically: "Well? Did he tell you to keep up the
Rex replies with quiet satisfaction: "Oh, Vera ... You've spoiled my surprise!"
