Matt and Meg don't want to move house, but with lots of people coming to view their lovely home it looks like they'll have little choice. Desperate to buy extra time, Meg teams up with Gail to try to sabotage the sale by 'Scooby-Dooing' the house and scaring off potential buyers.

Matt isn't thrilled with the plan, however, and his natural cowardice threatens to scupper the operation.

Matt's scaredy-cat nature is a further hindrance when he comes face to face with robbers while at work, as local teenagers target the tourist information centre. If he can't deal with a couple of kids in balaclavas, how will he ever work up the courage to talk babies with Meg?

Although, babies are actually at the forefront of Meg's mind too, when her and Iain are forced to stop tip-toeing around each other and look after an infant abandoned in the surgery.
