It’s not often that Dylan (William Beck) comes across someone who’s even ruder and less co-operative than he is. But he seems to have met his match when a grouchy, drunken, hygienically challenged tramp is brought in after apparently causing a car accident.

Meanwhile, lovely emergency paediatric specialist Tom (Oliver Coleman) is trying to help the reluctant teenager who heroically saved the tramp and the car’s driver. But he’s not being co-operative, either. “It’s like living with Satan,” says his despairing mum. “He woke up one day and it was all acne and hair and ‘Shut up and die, Mum’.” That’s kids for you, as Linda (Christine Tremarco) is beginning to find out.


Linda is forced to take her errant sister's children to the ED so she can supervise them. However, the youngsters cause chaos, and matters come to a head when one of them steals a baby to get back at her aunt. Meanwhile, Dylan struggles to treat a homeless alcoholic (Billy Boyd from Lord of the Rings) who was involved in a traffic accident.
