Further details

Sam has some free tickets for the dinosaur park and Liam has a day off, so it is the perfect opportunity for him to address his childhood fear of dinosaurs. Tiger and Joey are up for a free trip too, but end up getting roped in as the entertainment.

The Maltbys are back at the Solana but there is something not quite right about Pauline - who has developed some strange eating habits. Noreen and the Oracle are determined to get to the bottom of it.
