Helped by Sonja,Alan devises a meticulous plan to watch,on video,all the James Bond films in sequence over the bank holiday weekend,but excludes Michael from the viewing out of pique that Michael has a new best friend,an Americanophile,Terry,who calls himself Tex. Unfortunately Lynn spills drinks over almost all the videos and,when Alan remonstrates with her,Gordon,her ex-policeman boyfriend,threatens Alan to back down so he gives her a pay rise instead. After an unsuccessful effort to make John the builder his new best friend he reconciles with Michael,only to find that 'Tex' has recorded 'America's Strongest Man' over the one intact Bond film. As a result Alan declares himself to be Norfolk's Maddest Man.
