Ginger is excited that her UK family will be flying out to Australia for her birthday (December 24th) and Christmas. She gets a scare, however, when Ethan tells her the trip is off. While Ginger frantically tries to reach the rest of the family for confirmation, they're busying themselves getting ready for Christmas. Corey is excited that Matt will finally be home from cookery school for the festive season, Robbie starts learning the bass guitar and Bob practices using his new mobile phone. Ginger finds out that Ethan was lying, but when she calls to confront him, he's too busy dealing with his own problems: Penny has broken up with him.
