Janet decides to earn a living making squeaky elves for kids, but all her creations are horrifically ugly and Jonny thinks they are possessed. Janet begins to get too emotionally attached to the elves and asks Gaz to store them in his garage.

Donna crashes into them, and about three parked cars, in her stolen transit van. She gets the sack from her job. Jonny demands baby changing facilities in the pub and launches a "fathers for justice" type campaign.

Louise's adopted mum has given her a letter from her real mum. She can't open it. When she finally does, she finds her real mum was from a posh bit of Runcorn and is thrilled.
