The Home Owner's husband was married to the Home Owner, and lived with her in their London flat. His wife was having an affair, which he didn't know about, as their flat was broken into while she was with her friend. During the break-in, Cobb planted a pair of ladies underwear in the husband's trousers to "give them something to talk about".

Later, he went with the Home Owner to a restaurant where Cobb and Bill were having a meal. His wife did not say that she recognised the intruders - but the two burglars left soon after the couple arrived.
