Tired of her husband bringing "little presents" home to her, Mrs. Hoskins hears that bubbles can prevent the transmission of Covid.

He didn’t even mind one of them using beer, but he drew the line at the cheap guy pissing on his leg.

It was later discovered that the flight deck smoke alarm activation was a false alarm.
