  • Jackie's plain-speaking mother comes to dinner,getting her hair caught in the car door,and instantly antagonizes her daughter by telling her that the new curtains of which Jackie is so proud are horrible. And when Martin drops the dinner on the floor and scoops it back in the dish,nobody dares tell Grandma. As the two women row Adam and Jonny repair to the pub,where they meet Jim and have to help him carry his drunken dog home. Adam gets everybody back on good terms though his practical joke almost kills Grandma who,after a glass of reviving spirits,finds the curtains are really rather nice.

  • The boys bring Grandma home for dinner but Grandma gets her hair stuck in the window of Jonny's car. A struggle ensues, during which the car alarm goes off - "Is that the police?" asks Grandma. Mum shows the family the new curtains. Grandma tells her they're "horrible," and "the wrong color: yellow." Mum is insistent: "They're not yellow, they're cream." "They're yellow," argues Grandma. Meanwhile, Dad drops Mum's beef casserole all over the kitchen floor. It looks disgusting: "Did Dad have diarrhea?" quips Jonny. Dad scoops it back into the dish. The boys are not happy about their meal. Later, Jonny hides in a bin bag and jumps out at Adam causing him to smash Mum's best plate. Mum explodes, and when Grandma comes to Jonny's rescue, an argument erupts, during which Grandma orders Mum to "Go to your room!" The argument spreads, and Jonny leaves in a huff to go to the pub. Adam joins him. At the Black Boy - a pub as friendly as its name - the boys meet neighbor Jim. Jim gives his dog, Wilson, a pint of beer to drink, and the boys end up carrying a very drunk dog all the way back home. At home, Mum and Grandma are still not talking, so it rests with Adam to resolve the family argument. But can Adam save the day ...?
