After testing and cleaning the bus, the Chuckles are ready to hit the road. Happy comes around to inform them if they don't get any customers during the day, they won't get the job or a licence. Barry comes up with the idea to pick up hitchikers off the road. When Happy comes round for the inspection, he isn't impressed and tell the two if they don't get a large ammount of customers in one hour, they won't get their licence.
