Needless to say Mona's prank backfires as removal man Les, snobby neighbours Annabel and Jonathan and Jill from the Electricity Company, who also suffers from arachnophobia, all become variously involved in the search for Terry with chaotic, hilarious results. The comedy becomes heart-warmingly poignant as Mona reveals her true motivation to her daughter.
