A flu epidemic has hit Ballyfermot School and most of Roy's friends have fallen ill. Roy, being a cartoon, seems to be immune to human ailments and while this has some benefits, like more helpings of school dinners, he soon wishes that he, too, were at home enjoying some time off. Jack suggests a plan for Roy to feign sickness. Will Roy follow Jack's advice and, if so, will his dishonesty backfire?
