SÄSONGER & AVSNITT
When Arthur Blenkinsop (Eric Sykes), foreman at Lillicrap Ltd., gives a job to the half-Irish, half-Pakistani Kevin OGrady (Spike Milligan), the existing workforce dont take kindly to a new wog in their midst.
When all he wants to do is an honest days work for an honest days pay, Kevin has trouble understanding the work-shy and heavily union-based ethics of his colleagues.
Upon winning £250,000 in the football pools, Kevin suddenly finds that he has far more friends than he ever realized.
His landlady cooks him a special meal, and the landlord stands a round of drinks at the local.
On his way to holy confession in case he gets killed at a football match, Kevin walks into the middle of a race riot and gets walloped and arrested.
When Young Dick finds out that Kevin has doubled his chance of getting to heaven by being both Catholic and Muslim, he is ever so slightly appalled.
Among those giving OGrady trouble is Kenny; he has always thought of himself as one of the lads, but since OGradys arrival, the black Cockney workman finds himself now firmly placed on the immigrant side.
