Tony is ill but Pam is unsympathetic and leaves him in James's care.

Having coerced Leo into agreeing that she can use his family's house for Judy's Surprise Party, Peggy arrives at the Macdonalds "to see what she's working with" and, hearing that Tony is unwell, appoints herself as Chief Nurse.

James discovers that Tony has been reading up about transsexuals and assumes this means that his Dad is gearing up to transition himself. When he discovers the truth he heads off to talk it all through with Judy.

Meantime, Leo is repelled by Geoff's creepy and inappropriate interest in Judy - and ends up walking away from the job. Pam comes home to an unwelcome surprise.
