Magz has made some spiritually inclined new friends at the local vegetarian café, and embarks on a journey of self-discovery. When Tommy embarrasses Magz in front of her new friends, she begins to question whether he's good for her or not. Later, Tommy and Raymond are bird-proofing a shopping centre when they see Magz out with her new yoga instructor. Tommy is convinced this is the end of the relationship. He tries to win her back, using every tactic he can think of, including begging, feigning terminal illness and wearing a Native American, fringed leather jacket.
Tommy goes to Court over a train fare-dodging accusation. Magz is concerned that his stubbornness will land him in jail, where - as Vicky likes to remind him - terrible things can happen. Tommy calls Magz' friend Penny as a character witness, which is not a particularly good move as Penny doesn't actually like him. Tommy believes he has a foolproof defence case, which is destroyed in the first two minutes, so he falls back on emotionally manipulating the jury. His only witness is a man who barely realises he is in a courtroom.
Tommy is infuriated when Vicky picks him up on a grammatical error. So, when he and Raymond are called to a school to get rid of a rat, Tommy is determined to show that he is not just a dumb rat-catcher. His insecurity comes to the fore, however, when the history teacher tries to engage him in a conversation. Tommy later insults the school caretaker and, feeling guilty, decides to apologise. When he gets to know the caretaker a bit better, however, he realises that the original insult was totally justified. When Tommy gets a chance to speak to the pupils, he eschews conventional teaching methods in favour of "blowing their minds".
Tommy defends a group of local squatters against small-minded, suburban prejudice. Vicky and her mates, meanwhile, are spreading unsubstantiated rumours about life inside the squat. Tommy is annoyed that his neighbours, Jonathan and Bethany, are labelling the squatters as anti-social before they have even met them. Tommy has not actually met them either, and, following a visit to the squat, he realises that sometimes, if only by accident, small-minded prejudiced suburbanites can be right.
