* LanguageBarrier: The girls decide to check out a chateau in France only to be dropped off at a rustic cottage. They spend a week in miserable conditions with a strange man coming around constantly, speaking in French and scaring them. Saffy finally picks them up with Bubbles as the man comes by and Bubbles speaks French. She tells a stunned Patsy that the man is wondering why the girls are waiting in this crummy shack when the staff of the upscale chateau down the road has been waiting for them all week. Pats warns Bubbles to never mention this to anyone.
