Episode Summary

Susan is in a beatle costume, because she has to meet a tour group in Abbey Road. Nick stabs himself with a fork as he thinks he is still asleep but he obviously isn't as he feels pain. Susan comes home from work and sees Nick launching himself on the sofa. She wants the three children to help tidy up as her Boss is coming to dinner.

Susan ask Ben to clean the guest toilet and owns up that Scott Taylor is in from America and wants to dine with them. Susan & Ben offer £50.00 to take the children out to dinner. Susan is anxious about the dinner. Ben tries to sneak out with the children when they leave. They push him back in. Susan offers to do the 'thing' if Ben helps her out tonight.

Scott arrives with airline soaps as a gift. The taxi hasn't been paid. Ben is despatched to do it, and bring in his bags. Scott has also bought the wine. Small airline bottles. Scott enjoys the shepherds pie. After dinner Susan suggests they get rid of the costumes for her tour guides. Ben is in the kitchen drinking wine out of a pint mug when he is meant to be making the coffee. Scott and Susan disagreee. Ben enters with coffee and Scott doesn't feel well. They have to sleep on the sofa as Scott is in his bed. Nick enters and is about to leap on the sofa when he realises they are under the duvet.

Susan prepares breakfast, and asks Ben to go and wake Scott. Ben comes downstairs and can't bring himself to tell the family Scott is dead. The police arrive and Susan wants to confess to it being her fault. Nick fancies the policewoman. Ben the officer end up watching the game. Michael makes an estimate as to the time of death and he is spot on. Nick has asked out Stephanie. Ben and Susan have doubts about sleeping in the bed where Scott died. They sleep on the couch. Susan goes to confession. She confesses she has killed a man. By arguing. She argues with the priest, who falls asleep and suggests she tries the Methodists.

Ben is stripping the bed to take it downstairs before the new one arrives. Michael and Janey won't help without money. The mattress falls on Ben. Nick arrives home and chats with Ben under the mattress. Nick is already tired of Stephanie. Ben and Susan chat in bed and wonder about the 'thing'. Susan thinks scott is still in the bedroom. They move to the sofa. Nick arrives home in handcuffs having finished with Stephanie.
