In ROADWORKS, a road crew begins tearing up the street outside Mr. Bean's apartment, and he'll stop at nothing to get a little peace and quiet. After attempts to sabotage their equipment backfire, Bean tries to insulate his apartment. Then he tries passing a petition. Finally, when all else fails, he resorts to feeding the crew non-stop so that they can't get back to work. But even this strategy only makes things worse for poor Mr. Bean. In THE SOFA, Bean realizes that his old sofa is falling apart. He decides to replace it with a new one, but hasn't got enough money. So Mr. Bean has a yard sale. He proudly pays for the new sofa and manages to get rid of the old one. But his brief success turns quickly to disaster when he discovers that not only is his old sofa gone, but so is the remote control to his television!
