Mr. Bean is excited by a Van der Graaf generator and uses it after he sees how it affects a woman's hair. When he uses it, the generator doesn't seem to be working on his hair; however, it leaves static electricity on his hands that persists for quite a while, causing problems when picking up a piece of paper.
Mr. Bean goes to the beach and tries to change into his swimming trunks without ever becoming naked, in order to prevent a nearby man from seeing him. Mr. Bean goes through great pains to successfully perform this task. Afterwards, he becomes aware of the man's handicap.
