Liam is being given a pirate-themed birthday party but when Paula drills through a water-pipe putting up a porthole the party is moved,along with Ray's huge,home-made pirate ship,to a reluctant Eileen's house. Paula gets hysterical that things will not be ready on time so Eileen gives her a whiskey and asks her friends round to help with the organization. When one of them gives Paula a tranquillizer the effect,mixed with the drink makes her very hyper and frightens the guests whilst Liam,scared of pirates,locks himself in the bathroom and Ray bemoans his parents' absence from the gathering. To cap it all Eileen has a 'surprise ' visitor,invited by Paula,Maurice,the man who tried it on with her in Lapland. Eileen is relieved when the day is over though Mandy and Pete have some welcome news - Eileen is going to be a grandmother again.
