Matthew has his checklist of everything he needs to do before he goes on holiday, as well as everything everyone else should be doing before they leave the flat too.

Tensions bubble over, most notably the sense of injustice while remembering how Ben won a childhood talent show that they all entered on their last holiday to Boppins holiday camp.

The taxi driver arrives early and becomes an unwitting judge of an impromptu talent show. Tom digs out his old straitjacket, quits packing and tries to prove he should have won with his magic act. Matthew finds time to forget about the lost passports and instead recites the poetry that saw him booed off stage at Boppins. Ben is staying out of things and thinks he might give the holiday a miss after making some terrifying online discoveries.
