Providing he behaves. Budgie is due to be released from prison in three weeks' time. It looks as though his luck has changed - but anyone who knows our hero can be certain that 'waiting' will prove a bit of a strain.
Old venues, some old faces - and some new. After a surprise meeting with his ex-girlfriend Hazel, Budgie decides it is high time to make some quick money. It isn't long before he's back to his old tricks again.
When Budgie dons a white coat and takes a job, his friends are amazed. Could it be that he has started on the straight and narrow at last? Even Charlie Endell shows surprise - but then he's privy to 'secret' information.
Our tactless hero does it again. Having arrived home very late one night, to face Hazel's wrath, he compounds the issue by telling her he has a friend waiting outside - one whom he's invited to stay the night.
Charlie Endell drives Budgie to a football match in his Rolls Royce. Just after they park, someone tries to shoot Charlie, but hits Budgie by instead. They both take refuge in a nearby house, much to the annoyance of the owners, who have a dark secret of their own.
A chance meeting between Budgie and his old friend Inga the Stripper on a railway station sets in motion a chain of events which places our hero well and truly in the firing line - and leads to a final showdown.
Budgie's blown it. Charlie Endell is after his blood, and this time he means business. Budgie's friends have gone to ground, and the heavies looking for him all over London, he needs somewhere to hide. Where?
