In the first episode, Alex brings her snobbish boyfriend home, who makes fun of Hamish's name. The episode has a running gag of Hamish vandalising his car and giving him tickets for his light not working. The boyfriend finally snaps and storms into the police station to challange Hamish to a duel. We see Hamish walk towards the camera, which blacks out to a comical "whomp!" sound effect and the next we see is TV John pushing the unconsious boyfriend in a wheel barrow back to the mansion. He meets the major and they have a light hearted chat. "Isn't that my house guest? He's not dead is he?"
