Storyline

A hungover Tucker Jenkins is woken by his mother, who reminds him that he is supposed to be signing on at the dole office that morning. Mrs Jenkins' annoyance increases when she discovers Tucker's vomit-stained jacket from the previous night- Tucker blames the mess on Tommy, who was 'taken ill.' Eventually roused from bed, Tucker departs for Tommy's house- just as Tommy arrives at Tucker's. Receiving no answer, both head for Alan's, but Tommy stops on the way to flirt with Allison, the girlfriend of local thug Passmore. However, while carrying Allison's shopping home, Tommy is spotted and chased off by Passmore and his sidekick Brains. Tucker and Alan are understandably suspicious when Tommy turns up, out of breath and carrying a shopping bag filled with bras and tampons. Finally reunited, the trio go to the dole office, where Alan reveals that his Grange Hill girlfriend Susi doesn't want to know him now he has left education. Tucker, meanwhile, has caught the eye of a young woman ... Written by Cosmic Imp
