The Dummy Princess Margaret presents the British Show Biz Awards, with first prize going to the remains of the late Sir Alan Waddle. At a salon party in 1895, Oscar Wilde trades dirty epigrams with George Bernard Shaw and the Prince of Wales. Back at the awards ceremony, David Niven's Refrigerator announces that Pier Paolo Pasolini's The Third Test Match has won sixth prize. The Kamikaze Scotsman returns from the previous episode "A Book at Bedtime" to top off a sketch about brain salesmen. The Northwest squares off against the Southwest in the International Wife-Swapping Tournament, which segues into a rugby match on "Grandstand." And the awards ceremony ends with the writers of the "Dirty Vicar" sketch winning the Mountbatten Trophy. Carol Cleveland makes a brief appearance. With the January 18, 1973 telecast of "Grandstand," the third season of Monty Python's Flying Circus came to a close.
