The Moreros then get a strange letter from their new neighbours, and they are being requested to keep down their loud voices. Meanwhile, Cheryl pays them a visit, and learn Carla and Floris Callewaert are uptight, intellectual people who are badly annoyed by the Moreros extravagance. Meanwhile, Cheryl drags Yari to the store, in an attempt to lighten him up, but it fails once again.Evert tells Martin he knows someone who would be great as their new p.a. As a group of sexy whitheads show up at their house, Cheryl and Martin continue their fights about the p.a., and Cheryl is pleased when Evert's reference, Ilona de Vries, walks in the door. As Martin and Cheryl proceed their quarreling outside, they are encountered by Floris Callewaert. This time, he complains about Sinatra having done his needs in their yard, even having prove: Sinatra's shit. Martin yells at him for leaving them alone. Meanwhile, Yari turns grey mouse Ilona into a diva, and is therefore regaining his old self. As a last shot, we see Tippi Wan, who is now the Callewaert's au-pair.
