Sam got a terrible cold after a wet Tasmanian adventure, runs a fever and needs bed rest, even hallucinating. Rikki volunteers as orderly and even resolves to make chicken soup, which means facing has avian phobia in more ways then in his nightmares. Resting alone with the twins, Sam gets used to ignoring nightmarish monster visions and their pranks along those lines. So even after baby crocodiles turn up at home, as soon turns out due to floods, likely to cut off Rikki, Sam assumes the twins just play another trick when they sound crocodile alert, but it's really a giant 'salty' mother. Sam must distract her by returning the babies without any Fox or Rikki becoming crocodile meals.
