Paul has promised Calvin tickets for the FA Cup final. He is not having a lot of luck until Sean pulls him into a spot of debt collecting: rather than money, tickets fall into his lap. Naturally, he is loathe to keep quiet about this and soon he is coralled into getting tickets for Gary 'The Hitman' Whitman.
