When they learn that the school is organizing a trip to Paris , the girls (and James) are happy to go but for very different reasons: Clare is interested in the cultural aspect of the city, Michelle wants meet a handsome Frenchman while Erin is a fervent admirer of Samuel Beckett , a world-famous Irish writer who died in Paris. Unfortunately, Jenny informs them that, in order to participate, they will each have to pay  £ 375 . Faced with the distress of the girls, she recommends that they do as she does and dip into their trust . In the evening, the whole gang meets at the fish and chips storerun by the terrifying Fionnula to fetch the traditional Friday night meal for their respective families.

While waiting for their orders, the girls discover that none of them have trusts, as their parents never had the means to open one. After seeing the classifieds board at the store, they finally decide to take a small job to be able to finance the trip. During the meal, Erin and her family find themselves forced to listen to Uncle Colm ( Kevin McAleer), Joe's more than boring brother, recount his misadventure last night: two hooded men threatened him with weapons and fled with his van after tying him to the radiator. Mary deduces that they stole her van so they could hide weapons in it, cross the border and then burn it down. Aunt Sarah ( Kathy Kiera Clarke ) sees this as an opportunity to get on TV to tell Colm's story, become local celebrities, and be offered free fries for life by Fionnula for the whole family. Erin goes to answer the door and discovers that Michelle, who was drunk at the time, took advantage of Fionnula doing her checkout in the back to steal the classifieds board. Thus, according to her, they will have priority over job offers.‌

The next day, motivated, the whole gang leaves to apply but Fionnula goes to Erin's mother to denounce them for the theft. The girls then learn, at that time, that Clare confessed everything to her mother and that the latter called Fionnula to warn her. Fionnula decides that, to set an example, the girls' families will be banned from the store, which horrifies everyone except James who hates this food, which is too greasy for his taste.

To avoid banishment, the whole gang finds themselves forced to clean the store for free every Sunday in the absence of Fionnula, gone to her yoga class. But, because of their incompetence, the place ends up even dirtier than it was originally. Meanwhile, a demotivated Michelle has gone upstairs to Fionnula's living room to steal her booze and party. Despite the protests of the girls, she decides to make fiery shots but accidentally knocks the tray to the floor, setting the curtains on fire. James manages to bring the incipient incident under control with a fire extinguisher.‌

Faced with the extent of the damage, the girls end up calling Erin's mother for help. While she scolds the girls, obviously not believing that Michelle dropped a scented candle, Sarah watches her interview being aired on Fionnula's living room TV. When Mary hears Sarah recall certain facts (Colm found his hands tied to the radiator with his own shoelaces and the men threatened to set fire to his armchair), she has an idea. Sarah and they tie the girls and James with their shoelaces to the radiators in the living room to make it look like the store was robbed to get the keys to the van. But Fionnula comes home earlier than expected and the two women don't have time to hide. Mary, up against the wall, tries to make Fionnula believe that Michelle dropped a scented  candle.

The family finds themselves banned from the store and is now forced to order pizza every Friday night.
