Living the Dream
The boiler has broken so Susan, Janey and Kenzo are wrapped up against the cold. Ben returns from the Boat Show with a model and tells Susan he wants a boat but Susan tells him they can't afford it because Michael will be going to university, the boiler has broken and Janey wants to send Kenzo to a private school.
Ben is jealous of one of his patients who has the boat that Ben wants. Roger shows off his new expensive watch and says he has made lots of money through "Pyramus".
Ben takes a reluctant Susan to a Pyramus meeting where they meet Roger and Abi. Against their initial instincts, they get drawn into Pyramus and return home loaded with products to sell on. Michael tells them it is a scam but they are determined to prove him wrong.
Later, Roger turns up in a brand new sports car so Ben and Susan decide to increase their Pyramus order. The house is packed with Pyramus boxes and Michael tells them not to go running to him when it all goes wrong. After a long days selling, Ben and Susan have only made one sale and Ben has been bitten by a dog.
They give in and ask Michael for help. Under his advice they organise a Pyramus party but find it difficult to sell anything with the people they attract. Roger and Abi turn up so Ben uses Roger as a real life example of Pyramus success but Roger tells him that he was left the money for the car in an Aunt's will. Ben and Susan burn Ben's model boat for heat.
