Bet worries that Reg is after her. Doug returns and tells Kevin why he ran away: his real name is Dave Matthews and his business has just folded, leaving him with massive debts. The bailiffs are now after his classic Jaguar. He asks Kevin to trust him as he needs the job. Jim is annoyed that Doug is back as he wanted his job. Reg hosts the quiz, assisted by Raquel. The teams of Curly, Derek, Jack and Martin versus Vera, Mavis, Gail and Deirdre are confused by Reg's rules. The fuse blows and the teams end up rowing with each other over the questions. Richard Willmore, there to observe, is not amused.
