In the second episode Charlie recounts a visit to a grand London house.
Charlie is climbing in the last chimney when he becomes stuck in the flue...and begins to panic.
George, the master sweep, suggests he does it 'in the buff' - i.e. without his clothes on.
But Charlie is completely stuck and fears he is about to endure every climbing boy's worst nightmare...suffocating within the chimney.
Eventually George manages to push Charlie up through the flue and Charlie carries on out on to the roof of the house. But when he gets down again he is summarily dismissed - he's too big for sweeping work now.
