Matt refuses to answer the door to Wayne's frantic knocking, and then there's the sound of sirens as a police car approaches... The next day Gemma accompanies Matt to school, with her black mouse ready for a race against Cracker's own rodent. Alec's growing tired of Sean's implication that they are both in trouble up to their necks. Wayne's in school, against his expulsion, but determined to clear his name. Matt cowers outside, determined to avoid both Sean and Wayne. Gemma persuades him to go inside, and she'll say he's off sick. Cracker tells Gemma that he and Tom have set up a race track for the race - if she's not too scared. "Put your money where your mouse is," he jokes. Judi puts two and two together, and confronts Sean about the switched video tape. Sean sees Matt in the corridor, dispelling Gemma's myth that he's off sick, and in the loos tells Matt that the whole matter's sorted but he's to keep quiet. However waiting behind a door is Wayne who's overheard the conversation. ... Written by Geffers
