At a séance a spirit is successfully conjured up - however only Bob can see him. As Bob tries to keep the ghost a secret the spirit has other plans and wreaks havoc on the place.

While taking Bosh back through all his previous lives (and destroying Bob's kitchen in the process) Vic finally, but unknowingly, manages to secure a photo of the ghost. If Bob wants to prevent Vic from winning the chimp, and getting himself another house mate he needs to keep the photo away from Vic.
