Lucy Johnson brings her dog, Lenny, to school - it attracts admiration from everyone in her year - except, of course, Jenny Young. The only problem is hiding the animal - Lucy puts it in a cupboard, but before long it is on the loose, with a trail of toilet paper like the Andrex puppy. Kathy McIlroy arrives for her first day on "the dark side" as Mr. McDonnell refers to it - she is deputy head of the CLC - the Community Learning Centre which offers computer training to the general public. Abel brings his younger brother, Theo, in for his first day with his highly confident friend and ladies man Laxo. Jenny is revulsed by the sight of her sister and Togger kissing: Mrs. Rawlinson tells her "there are two things in life we cannot pick: our noses and our families." Tanya's skimpy attire is too much - she is sent home, but she was half-expecting trouble, and has some more orthodox clothes in her bag. After a massive chase, the dog runs into Kathy - but it's only her first day on the staff... Written by Geffers
