Storyline

Ernie and Fred, better known as the Redcoats, a British rock band all the craze among the teen set, are performing on Alan's show, which is causing issues for the show staff if only in keeping the screaming female fans at bay. It becomes an even bigger issue for Rob as Mel asks him if the Redcoats can stay at his house for one night, since their top secret hotel whereabouts are always found out by their adoring fans, resulting in the boys not getting any rest whatsoever. Rob, who isn't allowed to tell anyone except Laura, reluctantly agrees, although Rob and Laura end up believing the worst will happen. They may be the instigators of their own demise as as much as they know it's a bad idea, they are both dying to tell someone - anyone - that the Redcoats are staying at their house. Written by Huggo
