Soo asks Sooty to help her get some peace from Sweep, but Sooty's magic doesn't work, despite Sooty's best efforts to turn Sweep into a frog! Soo goes to complain to Matthew and is turned into a frog by Sooty accidently and then a lemon! Matthew and Sweep subsequently become lemons as well..... Sweep later tricks Soo out of the bathroom and locks her out, which turns into yet another argument. Sooty turns them into lemons yet again, to stop them arguing. This results in all three friends falling out completely! Matthew decides to take them to a school to meet some children to find out if they argue with anyone and why.
