Synopsis Lovejoy (Ian McShane) goes to Brighton with his associates for a working holiday. There he finds a plate which was part of a complete dinnerware owned by a baroness (Renee Asherson), which the Nazis thew into a lake during World War II by skipping them across the water when they were drunk. He must race against time and Charlie Gimbert (Malcom Tierney) to find the complete set of dinnerware. To do this, he is encouraged by Tinker (Dudley Sutton) to employ the help of a psychic (Linda Marlowe). The psychic goes into a trance and tells him where to find the plates. She tells him about a meter maid, a juggler (Max Oddball) and a plane crash. They find these people and find they do have plates but wonder if the dinnerware will be destroyed when the plane crashes.Lady Jane (Phyllis Logan) admits to the baroness she is in love with Lovejoy. This is the first time she admits this to anyone. Lady Jane and Lovejoy have a falling out because she thinks Lovejoy is going to sell the dinnerware and not give anything to the baroness who is broke. In fact Lovejoy implies this is his intention. Lovejoy is staying in a broom closet at an expensive hotel and after taking a shower returns to the closet wrapped in a towel. He finds Charlie's girlfriend (Jane Hazlegrove) searching for one of the plates Charlie thinks Lovejoy has in the closet. The girlfriend cries on Lovejoy's bare shoulder as Lady Jane walks by. This makes her more angry. At the end, she realizes she was wrong about Lovejoy and asks for forgiveness as Eric (Chris Jury) drops one of the plates and they realize the psychic meant plate crash, not plane crash.
