Mr. Robson agrees to go to Germany. Lovelorn Mr. Parrott's voice is suffering from his increased smoking: in an effort to persuade Mr. Parrott not to go with the choir, Anna with her friend tries to make the teacher talk as much as possible in Maths. "There's something strange in the air," says Mr. Hankin - and after he's gone, the squeaky-wheeled trolley is moved to another safe location for the next bout in computer tennis. Things look bad for Sam - one set down to Dave the Caretaker. Meanwhile Mr. Hankin is lecturing Mr. Parrott about smoking, but to his horror Mr. Parrott breaks down in tears. Later, he gets more grief from the Year 9's who get the increasingly suffering teacher to repeat German phrases. Further, Mr. Parrott's dropped engagement ring is found, and passed round, until Josh innocently suggests he take it to Mr. Robson. Mr. Parrott's coughing destroys the morale in choir practice. Deviously, Justine and Maria ask Martha Jordan to sing an American song to them - ... Written by Geffers
