Jealousy is in the air between Duane and Stewpot over Clare. Gripper's dogged hounding of Randir causes him to align himself with Woody. An emergency staff meeting has everyone guessing what's about to happen. It transpires that lunch breaks are being reduced to 40 minutes because of staff shortages and playground fighting. Suzanne is forced to sew up her split skirt, and can hardly walk afterwards. Pogo (good-humouredly) asks Randir to show him how to put on a turban, but Gripper arrives and makes it clear that life's going to get tough for any foreigners. Duane falls out with Stewpot when he learns that he's asked out Clare. At the end of the day, there's a big confrontation looming between Woody's group and Gripper's, but it is defused by Mr. Hopwood. Written by Geffers
