Balifs are after Frank and the large amount of money he owns them. But Frank is too busy trying to fool his ex-wife out of hiding. He gets Shelia to ring up Monica and tell her that she has won a raffle, at the local supermarket. But Shelia is devestated when she tells Monica that Carol Vordaman is doing the prize giving and Monica doesn't know who Carol is!
At the supermarket Frank is spotted by Monica and her lesbian partner, Norma, and a halirious car chase begins (a spoof of Duel/Road Kill). Monica and Norma follow Frank and Kev back to Shelia's where Debbie spots her mother. Monica is hurt when Debbie ignores her and returns home.
Fiona and the other kids, apart from Lip and Debbie, turn up at Shelia's to see their mother. Upstairs Shelia tries it on with Norma.
A family meal between mother and children ends in disaster when Monica comes out as gay and Fiona walks out.
