Episode Summary

Ben sees he has Dorset written on his forehead in lipstick. We see Susan in the kitchen with Abi and Michael. Ben enters and Susan tells him she would like to go to Dorset for their anniversary.
Susan has already booked it. Nick leaps out at Ben with a mask and a chainsaw. He explains he has won a car and he is going to cut it up. Ben follows Nick into the garage and sees an old ’72 MG Roadster. Ben loves it, he used to have one, and wants to do it up. Michael finds a pair of Abi’s panties in his laundry. Ben, meanwhile, is in the garage working on the car when Nick comes in with a car jar and Ben has to pay him whenever he touches or looks at the car. Ben wants to call the car Jasmine, not LeRoy! Finally the car starts but peters out. Michael goes to put the panties back in Abi’s drawer when he becomes mesmerised and puts one of her bras on a teddy. Abi comes in and catches him. She now has a hold over Michael. Ben finally creeps into bed really late and Susan is jealous of the car. Then she realises that he still has his driving gloves on.

We next see Ben in the car driving along to music. We pull back to reveal he is still in the garage. Susan hops in and finds out he has cancelled their booking to Dorset. We see Abi getting her own way with Michael over what is on tv. The anniversary Morning we see Ben with Arse on his forehead. Susan wants the boys to all work on the car together. Ben asks Michael to go underneath and he says he needs to pop inside. Ben gets under the car and gets stuck. Nick goes in for help. Susan, Abi, Michael and Nick are eating Chinese,Abi blackmails Michael and ends up with his meal, Ben enters covered in oil. Nick has forgotten all about him.

Michael tries to confess to Ben and Susan that he is a pervert but they are too busy to listen. Finally he owns up to Nick who is proud of him. Susan goes into the garage and gives Ben a can of petrol. Abi enters with a cake lights it and there is an explosion. We see them all blackened.
