Next episode Cyril's Singing


The brothers have a baffled customer who can't understand why his car is red one end and blue the other. They shift some cars round the pitch and Cyril realises how out of condition he is, so decides to start jogging but that doesn't turn out too well. Wesley suggests they turn the Blue Cockatoo into a gym during the day and that's not much of a success either.
