Frank and Betty go on their second honeymoon.

Further details

As a bad start to the Spencer's second honeymoon, Frank very nearly misses the train and has to run after it down the platform. After arriving at their hotel, Frank takes it upon himself to make a few adjustments to the room, which eventually result in their lino getting torn, a broken wardrobe and a whole in their floor. Meanwhile, across the landing, another guest, Kenny, is having difficulty getting to sleep between the noises coming from the Spencer's room and his furniture disappearing.
