Episode Summary

The lads get involved in organising the biggest whiplash scam in Belfast's impressive history of personal injury claims. Mummy's boy Wardrobe, picks up the four lads and they go to get paid for the last job they did. To Wardrobe's dismay, their last 'client' pays them with a cheque so the only way they can get the cheque cashed is by Bap The Butcher. On their next visit to the dole office, they're aided and abetted by one of the office workers. They are given instructions in where to go to arrange their next scam. The boys need to set up a car crash involving a bus and are assured that if it all goes to plan, then they could receive £3,000 each. There is just three obstacles though: They need a 'clean car', insurance and a good driver. Ta's long suffering partner Una is drawn into the scam as she owns a legitimate car with insurance. At first Una does not want to get involved but when Ta tells her the money could come in useful for their wedding, she changes her mind. Shay's dodgy ex-schoolmate Hoker is signed up to drive Una's car. Everything is set up. The lads have gathered up enough people to get on to the bus (at a price of course) so they can then claim for whiplash. All they have to do now is wait now until the next 51 bus (the one that is going to crash into Una's car) comes along. Hoker and Una wait by the side road to pull out. While the boys are sitting in the traffic another 51 bus pulls out and then everything goes wrong. That bus crashes full steam ahead in to Una's car and the original bus driver drives past with a huge grin on his face. The lads not only lose their initial stake money but end up owing money to the people they'd roped into the scam. The injured Una now has a genuine whiplash claim but has to wear a neck brace and crutches for several weeks. She is on the warpath for Ta and the lads. Unfortunately their charm tactics of flowers don't defuse her fury.moreless
