User Reviews

Mr. Humphries once again escapes the bonds of matrimony.

Mr. Humphries learns that he might be deported because the proper work visa papers were not filed by Bone Brothers. With the immigration agents closing in on him, Mr. Humphries ties to disguise himself as an Australian maintenance man, but his characteristic mincing walk gives him away. He considers a marriage of convenience to Mrs. Crawford but at the last minute a substitute arrangement is worked out.

The question that is left open in this episode is why Wilberforce Clayborne Humphries, dedicated mother's boy with a circle of friends and a job in England would go to all this trouble to stay in Australia. This question is never addressed, and the viewer is left to wonder what Mr. Humphries is running from
