Further details

There is a school inspector coming round and the school is to be on its best behaviour. Meanwhile, Hank is trying to do a good turn to McKelty but ends up injuring him more. Hank gradually makes friends with him and they bond over McKelty's funny (but slightly rude) caricatures of members of staff. However Hank accidentally hands them in to Adolf and a chase ensues as Hank and McKelty try and get them back.

They finally get them back, only for Hank to accidentally push McKelty and his wheelchair down some stairs, injuring him and the School Inspector in the process. Meanwhile Rosa is fed up at the mess in the house and decides to leave all the dishes, hoping someone will get the message.
