Raj's domineering pa, a surgeon himself, wants a penis enlargement and insists suddenly uncertain Raj, who is now Matt's tutor, does it. This unleashes frustrations leading to a tragic climax. Christian celebrates his breast reconstruction too enthusiastically, resuming his prowling (to Liz's frustration) until his sutures burst. Ricky Wells insists on surgery to make him look about the age of his wife and former teacher, who was jailed for their then illicit affair. The result is a plastic success, but a family disaster.
