Michael Upton is cajoled into getting someone to quiz him and Duncan Waring. He is supposed to ask a junior Doctor and ends up asking Professor Loftus. Needless to say they both fail hopelessly and are told to come back at five. Upton is put off by all the food in the canteen and so he and Waring go to the pub and drink three pints of an extra strength cider by the name of appleyard. They return St. Swithin's completely trolled and stumble into a few rooms they shouldn't be in before eventually arriving at their class. Professor Pearson gets them to take part in an experiment on his oxygen machine. Waring messes around drunkenly whilst poor old Upton has to run up and down the stairs a few times. He is not on the machine long before collapsing. They return to the pub where they run into Loftus who orders himself a pint of appleyard cider claiming it a drink for real men.
