Victor throws up on a trip to the country and some school children draw it. Later he gets a job as a gardener for high-flying Fenella Fortune,who is also Patrick's new boss. Victor does not realize that what he thinks is weed-killer in the shed is her stash of drugs and he becomes happy inhaling the fumes. Unfortunately he also manages to demolish Ms. Fortune's greenhouse when his motor mower goes out of control. Patrick,up the leg of whose shorts a spider has crawled,is sacked with him whilst Mrs. Warboys is car-jacked by a drug dealer,leading to a traumatic experience with a dog,also drawn by the children.
