Episode Summary

EDIT
Trust Never Sleeps
AIRED:
Janey wants to have a party to celebrate getting an A at school, while Ben and Susan make themselves scarce. Barely miles from home they become obsessed about what the kids could get up to in their absence and turn back. They creep in and hide in the bedroom which unfortunately for Ben, has a blocked en-suite toilet. The party continues without incident until the neighbours complain about a man urinating out of a window... who could that be?!moreless

    This is easily the funniest episode in series 2. Susan "finds" Janey's diary and she reads the words "Mum doesn't trust me". Later on Janey asks if her, Michael and Nick can have a party while the parents are on a trip to Oxford. Susan says yes (making a point about trust) and although Ben says no, the kids treat him like he doesn't exist. on the way to Oxford, Ben goes to get a bottle of wine and while buying it he overhears a conversation about a party with "every yob within 200 miles". Ben and Susan drive quickly drive home and when they hear nothing they go to check the bedrooms. Unfortunately all the kids arive, turn on thumping music and leave Ben and Susan trapped in their bedroom. Everything about this episode is perfect. The part where Ben urinates out of the window is classic and the bit where ben is trapped in the bathroom scaling the wall up to the bedroom naked will leave you in stitches! This is a hilarious episode which makes the series DVD worth buying and is highly recomended.moreless
