Plot – The Guest House Paradiso is a Victorian and Gothic styled hotel that stands on a hill. The two managers, Richie and Eddie, have five guests: two couples and old lady Foxfur, until the Nices and cinema star Gina Carbonara arrive unexpectedly. The service is awful and the cooks escape. Richie and Eddie run away hotfoot too. Mr. Nice discovers Richie has rummaged in his underwear and wants to go to the police. Gino, Gina's boyfriend, arrives suddenly and asks her to marry, but she rejects him, so he consoles himself eating fish at the hotel. Shortly after, Z Squad experts find the fish of the area is radioactive and all the guests begin to vomit. Richie, Eddie and Gina save themselves and some emissaries offer them 10 million pounds to not reveal the fact. They accept the money and travel to the Caribbean on vacation.

    - Mr. Johnson: Actually, the water was cold.
    - Richard Twat: That's no reason not to wash, is it? Good grief, we are British, you know. We invented cold showers to stop people masturbating. Oh, I see, maybe that's why you are so upset about the lack of hot water.”
