A council official visits Broadhill retirement home because the council is making budget cuts and plans to cut costs at the home or perhaps close it entirely. The official questions Dougie's role at the home, and his lack of qualifications. He also asks if Derek is autistic and suggests that he see a doctor to diagnose it. Derek refuses on the grounds that being diagnosed would not make any difference to his life. Derek, Dougie and Kev try to raise funds for the home by seeking donations from the public in the street. They fail due to their lack of social skills. Animals from a rescue centre visit the home.
