Oscar's sister wants to go to a protest about saving the rain forests. In a funny moment, Oscar's brother walks through the bathroom door when Oscar is having a shower. He gives Oscar such a fright that he rips part the curtain off the rails. If Kurt wants to visit his mum during the school holidays, his dad would have to have enough money for the train ticket and he doesn't, unless he fills in for his dad's band's bass guitarist. At first he is reluctant, but soon he agrees. Sophie has went to the protest about saving the rain forests. Oscar comes to the protest too to make sure that his mum and sister don't get sent to a woman's detention centre. Kurt's dad's band (I think it's called Big Daddy) go to play at the protest. Oscar and Sophie get arrested but get bailed out in the end.
