The Oracle's attempts to apologise to Mel for the diving accident leads to a bit of a Kung-Fu punch up.

Meanwhile, instead of escaping from the resort, Martin and Kate find themselves stuck in their room babysitting Telle's baby. Martin discovers that doing a funny dance stops little Coolio crying.

Later, after his near death experience Mel, dressed in a head-turning white suit, abandons the idea of "having a crack at Wuthering Heights" at the karaoke night and instead asks a question that shocks everyone - especially Madge. She accepts the marriage proposal despite the fact he really can't sing!
