It is the day of the annual school party and everyone is getting ready.
P.C. Selby is going to the dance with Doctor Gilbertson, but he needs to help Alf Thompson with his sheep and his car breaks down on the way to the Doctor's house.
Meanwhile Lucy Selby is trying to find a costume for the party but nothing seems suitable. Eventually Pat and Sara help her to make one just in time for the party and Pat gives her a special VIP's escort to the school in Doctor Gilbertson's car.
