An awful smell is pervading the flat, and it doesn't take Carlos long to sniff out the cause: a blocked drain thanks to clogged English tea leaves! As he attempts to clear the blockage, the rest of the plumbing becomes an issue and Dorothy decides she really has, finally, had enough of the Spanish life.
