    Deep End

    When Steve and Nicky wake up to a beautiful sunny morning life in the countryside doesn't feel so bad after all... but they're soon brought back to earth when they discover their kitchen is flooded. Nicky tries calling a plumber but nobody can come for a couple of days so they resort to sweeping and shoveling the water out themselves. Their smug neighbors, Matt and Meena, only rub salt in their wounds by reminding them that they live in a dip so the water is probably coming up through the floor, and Nicky's father, Ken, says they'll have to tank the place, which will cost a fortune
