Spider receives a didgeridoo through the post from his friend Mole. He tries to play it but can't raise a note, unlike Emily who manages to make a lot of noise on it and finds it very satisfying. Nick and Leanne are disappointed to discover they have to give a fortnight's notice to marry but refuse to be put off. Spider leads the activities in taking their protest to Alf's house. Roy, Emily and Toyah join him in camping out on the Roberts' lawn. Zoe gets bored stuck at No.4 with Shannon. She's fed up with having no fun.
