Basil Fawlty (John Cleese) gets a cut-price deal on some kippers which were well past their sell-by date. Shortly after they're served with breakfast at the Fawlty Towers dining room, one of the guests dies, and Basil is certain a spoiled kipper was to blame. While a doctor assures Basil the kippers didn't cause the man's death, now Basil and Manuel (Andrew Sachs) have to hide the body from the guests -- and come up with an excuse for his absence when the late diner's friends stop by for a visit.
