Mind your language season 2 Episode 6: The students are playing games of darts and Scrabble while Mr. Brown is not around. Juan accidentally throws a dart at Sid as Jamila enters the classroom. Miss Courtney tells the students to stop the games and to go back to their seats; she takes Mr. Brown’s class and gets many wrong answers from his students. Mr. Brown arrives late, explaining that he had to get his stuff out of his flat as he’s having it painted and doesn’t like the smell of paint, and many students offer to let Mr. Brown stay with them. He chooses to stay with Max and Giovanni, who plan to throw a party and have the entire class bring drinks and foods from their home countries: pizza, chicken curry, fried rice, chapati and papadams, taramasalata, goulash, German sausage, paella valenciana, Bombay duck, quiche Lorraine, smörgåsbord and sukiyaki. When Mr. Brown arrives at their flat, he discovers it’s right next to a train station, but Max and Giovanni are used to the noise of the train and can understand each other perfectly well over it.
Max and Giovanni get ready to go and buy supplies for the party while Mr. Brown decides to take a bath. He steps outside first, and Max, not realising that Mr. Brown is on the balcony, locks him out before leaving with Giovanni. Mr. Brown walks to a window and knocks on it, but it’s an old woman’s flat and she calls the police to report him, thinking there’s a burglar. PC Barnes and George show up; Barnes finds Mr. Brown on the balcony trying to pick the lock, arrests him and takes him to the police station.
While the students are searching for Mr. Brown, he is at the police station trying to explain the situation, much to the sergeant’s disbelief. Sid is also taken to the police station for drunk and disorderly conduct. Giovanni and Max arrive to explain the mistake, but after they get back to their flat and all the other guests leave, Mr. Brown locks them out by mistake. They knock on Miss Partridge’s window, startling her, and get reported to the police. Mr. Brown goes to get the supposed burglar but gets arrested again. He clears up the misunderstanding, but the sergeant insists that he sleep on the bottom bunk of a holding cell for the night. On the top bunk is none other than Sid, who starts singing loudly.
