The housemates are in social Siberia so they decide to throw a party, spearheaded by Josie in the hope that she and Kingsley will get together - a plan scuppered when Josie's boyfriend Dave turns up unexpectedly. Josie is saved from further embarrassment when Kingsley steps in to prevent one of JP's nobhead friends revealing that she slept with him.

Meanwhile Oregon continues to cultivate her "alternative" image, dented slightly by the revelation that she has a car.

JP tries to impress his old schoolmate "King" Ralph, and Howard winds up having to pretend to be Vod's boyfriend to fend off the unwanted attentions of a drummer....
