Howard is thrilled when the tents are put up, however, the rest of the surgery are not so enamoured of the difficult conditions, namely the cold. However, Mrs Tembe tries to make it as habitable as possible.

Andy, a disgruntled patient, maliciously pulls out some tent pegs and the tent begins to collapse. Howard is despondent until fired up, as Mrs Tembe pulls the staff together to raise the tent up again.

Andy needs money and when his next door neighbour, the elderly Mornie, backs into his car, he sees a way out of his predicament. She reluctantly hands over a cheque for the repairs, which is far in excess of the damage done. He goes to see Niamh with whiplash, but she knows there’s nothing wrong and threatens him with the law if he doesn’t hand back the cheque, which he does reluctantly.
