The Doonan family are all set for their first-ever foreign holiday, but an untoward plumbing problem - also known as a run-in with Kylie's mum, Reba - forces them to change their plans.

Auntie Hayley's suggestion of a holiday in their front room with the curtains drawn seems to be the perfect solution. That is until Kylie discovers their secret and his dad, just out of prison, decides to pay an unwelcome visit to Melody Crescent.
