Series 2 Episode 5 - Shall we to the court?
Jethro puts himself on the stand as Van becomes Sparky’s private fantasy; a Hoochie Mama fantasy gets a man literally crotchless; and Pascalle fantasises about Hayden’s marital intentions.
Wolf has a case for Jethro. Sparky is currently in the cells on a very serious arson charge – and Jethro will get him off.
Jethro can’t win unless a witness can prove Sparky was otherwise engaged and therefore unable to have set the fire. Sparky’s face lights up. His friend was with him. Tinkerbelle. Yes, Tinkerbelle the fairy.
Van gets cornered by Wolf who needs Sparky on the outside. Van reluctantly agrees to take the stand as the witness to Sparky’s whereabouts on the night in question. Whatever Wolf is cooking up it must be big. Really big.
Jethro, these leaf blowers are the devil’s work.Sparky
In court, Jethro is cross-examining Judd – the arresting officer. Meanwhile, in the Hi Ace, Van is really feeling the pressure. Munter sagely suggests he relax with one of Mum’s special cookies.
Jethro proudly calls his next witness: Van ‘Tinkerbelle’ West. Jethro leads Van through his evidence. It starts out promisingly enough, but the longer they go on, the more Van’s state becomes increasingly worrisome. Desperate, Jethro calls for a recess.
In the court toilets, Jethro realises his brother is stoned – at which point the obvious (but highly risky) occurs to Jethro… he demands they swap clothes.
It’s lucky the prosecutor is such an obnoxious arse. He annoys the judge enough to throw the case out due to lack of evidence.
At the house, Wolf is very pleased with Jethro. Wolf He can see a role for Jethro in this job. What’s the job? All Wolf will say is that when the time is right he’ll let Jethro know.
A letter arrives at the West house. A person wearing Hoochie Mama crotchless panties has suffered severe injury. But how is this possible? It’s possible when the said wearer was a man whose testicle became distended/twisted/strangled when caught up in the garment, leading to much pain and suffering.
The letter writer threatens legal action. But Tracy refuses to be alarmed. Ignore it – it’ll go away.
Cheryl is not convinced. She asks Jethro to write a letter back to the complainant to make the case go away. But Jethro’s swamped and when Tracy drops by his office and offers to finish the letter, he takes up her offer.
The next day there is a knock at the door. Cheryl is confronted by a very angry man by the name of Malcolm Canning. This is panty guy! Infuriated by Cheryl’s apparent lack of sympathy to his predicament, he storms out leaving behind Tracy’s letter.
Cheryl quickly ascertains that Tracy was the letter-writer and says that from now on she will deal directly with this matter.
A new day and Cheryl is having a sit down with Malcolm – which involves for Malcolm several rubber rings and an icepack. His excessive demands enrage Cheryl and she lets him have it in true Cheryl style. It’s decided that Tracy can take back the reigns on this one. And Tracy chooses to give him what he wants…
Someone to pay attention! The girls unite for a piece in the NZ Women’s Weekly. Malcolm is pleased with the responsible attitude finally taken by Hoochie Mama and is taken with their new line of ‘man-panties’. He’s thrilled to the point of tears.
Now it’s time for Pascalle to get what she wants, to go the next level. She makes it clear: she’s going to get married to Hayden.
Pascalle enters Hayden’s office with a basket of fresh home baking for her hard working boyfriend; at dinner Pascalle is trying her hardest to impress; and in bed she drops subtle hints…
Pascalle reckons Hayden has given her all the signs – he loves my cooking; he agrees my room is too small; he wants me to give up modelling and I make him horny as hell. So what more do I need? But, asks Loretta, do you have anything in common?
Pascalle turns up at Hayden’s office again. This time, in addition to muffins she bears two tickets to the Waikaraka Park Stock Cars. Hayden hates the stock cars. Wow, how perfect! So does Pascalle! They do have something in common after all.
