Episode Summary

Ben is shaving, Michael has been sent in for a talk by Susan. Michael pretends he has a huge thing for his maths teacher, Ben cuts himself to ribbons.
It turns out she is 82. Abi is doing table art with Fruity puffs.

Michael tells them he is going to Bex’s house to ‘study’ after school. Susan does not approve. Ben does! In Ben’s room Michael has ideas but Bex has others and produces a ‘joint’. Bex’s mother comes home unexpectedly and Michael leaves with the ‘joint’. Ben & Susan are in bed. Ben explains what the morning pee entails. Susan is concerned about Michael as she has found a joint in Michaels drawer. Ben is despatched to talk to Michael, he goes in and comes straight out. They decide it is only right to try it to make sure it is alright for Michael. They smoke it and become as high as kites. Much to Abi’s disgust. When they wake up Susan is horrified about what they have done and reasons that they can’t put half a joint back. They go downstairs and Susan rolls a cigarette with herbs. Ben is sent into Michael’s room to put it back and he puts it in the wrong drawer. He is sent back again and this time wakes Michael again. Ben pretends he is juggling. They have a drugs talk and Michael explains it wasn’t drugs he went to see Bex for it was sex.

Ben admits to doing drugs when he was younger. Michael goes to meet Bex and gives the dope back. Which turned out to be Oregano mixed with other kitchen herbs. Susan and Ben decide to finish what they think is the joint!
