Debbie arrives on
a sunsoaked beach.
is telling T-Shirt off for squirting water pistols at him, and he is
being cheeky back. T-Bag then develops a headache, so T-Shirt decides
to play her some "soothing" music (which is actually thumping,
death-rock on the radio). After the song is over, the announcer for
"Radio Rif Raff" (a local pirate radio station) says that
they are waiting for a guest singer later on.
to the studio of Radio Riff Raff aborad a large ship. Long John Sylvia
is announcing upcoming items before she sings a jingle:
you're down in the mouth
your heart has sank
you're feeling like going out
walking the plank,
you're much to down
the dumps by half
stay with jolly old Radio Riff Raff.
Her assistant, Jack, smashes all the records by accident, so Sylvia
has to play the same death rock record again. She orders Jack to go
ashore and look for the guest singer. He finds Debbie on the beach and
assumes that she must be the singer, and asks for some help with some
numbers (meaning musical numbers). Debbie assumes he means silver numbers
and goes with him back to the ship.
is playing the record yet again when they arrive. Debbie is a bit confused
when they ask her to sing for them on air.
is listening in the T-Room. T-Bag is in bed. Debbie sings, "Blow
the Man Down", so T-Shirt drags T-Bag out of bed, but by the time
she gets to the radio, the death rock record is back on. She accuses
T-Shirt of hearing things.
demands payment, assuming the silver number seven, but Sylvia and Jack
have no money. They decide to keep her singing whilst they think up
and T-Shirt are rowing about hearing things. T-Shirt decides that if
he is hearing things, then it must be because he is never allowed a
holiday and is overworked. "Holiday!? I'll give you a holiday!"
T-Bag shrieks and storms off. T-Shirt thinks that she means it and goes
off on holiday.
realises that there has been a misunderstanding and goes back to shore
to find T-Shirt relaxing in the sun. He gives her a drink and a deckchair
and asks for her autograph. He asks her to be his friend because he
doesn't have any others.
discovers that he has gone and wonders if she has been a bit harsh on
him. She goes looking for him and arrives on the ship. Sylvia and Jack
think that she is a great artiste and flatter her into singing. T-Bag
gives herself a big introduction.

T-Bag starts singing, it is so awful that the microphone explodes. She
gets a replacement microphone and finds the number seven on it. Debbie
and T-Shirt hear this on the radio and T-Shirt takes her to the ship.
T-Bag taunts Debbie with the number before throwing it into the sea.
T-Bag takes T-Shirt back to the T-Room.
is distraught because she has lost the quest. She stays aboard the ship
to have dinner since she sang for it, and she is served with freshly
caught fish and chips. Debbie finds the number seven inside the fish
and decides that the fish must have swallowed it in the sea (Yes, it
is improbable, but no letters, please!).
