Full plot Edit
Episode 5 begins with SPLAT climbing the rubbish chute in order to gain entry to Vulcan Tower, Ingrid complaining of sore legs, Ian uncertain about what they may find at the top. Mandy wonders whether Dinah had been taken away in the helicopter they saw in the car park, to which Ingrid wishes she'd flown in it. Lloyd tells ingrid to be quiet.
Meanwhile, the brains are sent for lunch, everybody seems very miserable about the whole set up, Camilla thinking it is worse than school, Dinah remarking that her school used to be just like this, and she finds it frightening! The Super Salamander voiceover orders everybody to be silent as they enter the lift. As people enter the lift, it suddenly turns green as the octopus appears on the screen to hypnotise everyone.
Lloyd meanwhile has found the first opening since entering the rubbish chute, and he cannot believe what he's seeing, the way the food is being cooked, plates running along a conveyor belt with the food seemingly uncooked at one end, then magically cooked at the other in a matter of seconds! Inside the chute, Ingrid can't shut up about the helicopter, but Ian asks her to save her breath instead. Lloyd pushes the flap open, but in doing so, a machine full of rubbish starts to move towards the chute opening...
The brains suddenly wake up in the lift as the Octopus turns itself off, and they step outside, into the dining room. Super Salamander voice over asks them to collect cutlery from the cutlery dispenser, then take a seat at the table. Bess, Dinah, Camilla and Robert discuss what they think of the whole programme so far, Bess is quite excited about the computer, but doesn't like the Headmaster. The brains all sit down at the table.
In the rubbish chute, a machine is chucking a load of rubbish (what else?!) into the rubbish chute, as Lloyd yells at everyone telling them to close their eyes and hold on tight! Ian at the bottom seems to get the brunt of it all, loosing his baseball cap in the process, as well as shouting "OWWW, THAT HURT!!"
The machine backs away from the opening, having disposed its load of rubbish. Lloyd tells everyone to leave the chute before the machine returns with more rubbish!
Back in the dining room, the brains are now being served their lunch, which looks like some sort of stew, with potatos, carrots and peas. Throughout the room, everybody moans.
"But I don't like carrots..."
"I'll never eat all that!!"
"Ewww, these are cold!"
"But I'm a vegetarian!!"
Camilla, Robert, Dinah and Bess notice that everyone has been given exactly the same in the way of food, but people are not exactly the same. Dinah also has problems remembering how they got to the dining room, Robert is sure they used the lift to get there, but Camilla can't be sure whether they went up or down in the lift! Robert notices that they all go into a trance like state when looking at the octopus, but cannot work out the reason why.
In the food preparing room, the rest of SPLAT are amazed by the automated machinary used to cook lunch, in this case the puddings, which look like cake and custard! Ingrid cannot work out why the food appears to be raw at one end, then piping hot at the other, Ian reckons it must be some kind of special microwave! Harvey gets a bit impatient, and removes a bowl from the conveyor belt, and starts eating the cake. Lloyd objects to this, considering it to be stealing, but Mandy rightfully declares that if they find somebody, then they will pay for it.
"Wheres the first course?"
"Missed it, have to have double puds instead. Eat up all your greens!!"
Harvey wonders if they are eating Dinah's pudding, then Ian reminds them about Dinah. Ingrid can't stop going on about the helicopter, while Ian walks off, and discovers a lift! There appears to be no sign of any stairs, so they will have to risk using the lift. As Ian puts his hand on the hand-shaped button to call the lift, some green lines appear, and Ian is sucked out of view! The rest of SPLAT run over to try and save him but its too late...
