Christmas is coming but Clare has banned any celebrations so as not to be seen promoting Christianity. Instead she has brought in a swear box, which gets its money's worth from Bob. When the bank sends a card to Kurt and Briony the other teachers comment that Brian and Kurt are like a married couple so Kurt attempts to distance himself and find a new best friend though he still ends up with Brian. Simon is leaving for a permanent post at another school but has lost his class's homework. At an impromptu leaving party held by Bob in the pub for the teachers Simon finds it again but it's too late so the papers go cascading around Bristol.
