Storyline

Captain Peacock doesn't have his usual carnation and is in a very bad mood, but now that Mr. Grace has returned from America, carnations will no longer be needed, along with a lot of other things. In fact the entire manner of the floor will be changing. Casual dress and first-name terms within the department are only the beginning! Written by Nadia Nassar
