Further details

Sheldon is still sleeping on Paul's sofa and is keeping Paul awake with his snoring. Sheldon decides that Paul needs to relax to help him sleep and hatches a plan for his old friend Alison, a prostitute, to visit Bramble Lodge.

When Paul finds out that Sheldon has arranged for a prostitute to sleep with him, he's horrified and refuses to have anything to do with Alison. Alison is playing chess in the common room with Graham but, when the other male residents get wind of why she's there, there is an "I'm Spartacus" moment as they all claim to be Paul.

Jean finds out what is going on and is furious so Paul concocts a story to get them all off the hook. Meanwhile, Swithenback continues to find excuses to spend time at Bramble Lodge and be with Jean.
