The boys move to a new house, which looks surprisingly like their previous house. After some squabbling over bedrooms and a minor bed fire, they settle in. Strangely, Buddy Holly hangs suspended from Mike's (Christopher Ryan) ceiling, but not for long. Thanks to a genie, Neil (Nigel Planer) temporarily acquires six pairs of hands. Runny-bottom Rick (Rik Mayal) is restrained by a bouncer (Robbie Coltrane) after Mike establishes a roller-disco in Rick's room. Laundry-maven Neil and Rick face oppression from Mike and Vyvyan (Adrian Edmondson), after oil is "discovered" in the basement. Vyvyan is mildly disturbed when a pickaxe becomes lodged in his skull. Rick stages a benefit concert, which sees Alexei Sayle singing a song about Dr. Marten's boots.
