When several beautiful women are spotted entering the house formally occupied by Buurman Buys, Mien decides to borrow a cup of sugar. It turns out the new neighbor is a pilot who rents out rooms to stewardesses.
Annie has a secret meeting with a strong and handsome German masseur she met in the health spa but Jopie is on to her. Dr. John wants to expand his work load but Lydie takes offense to having to retire early.
Koos receives a letter from an attorney regarding an inheritance from an unknown English relative. John becomes suspicious when neighbor Rik invites Wiep over to his house because he would like to purchase one of her paintings.
Hans & John disapprove when Lydie and Wiep pay special attention to neighbor Rik and his sore throat. Koos' inheritance involves taking care of a 30 year old turtle, whom Mien names 'Herman' and subsequently loses in Lydie's garden.
Koos' portrait by Wiep turns out a bit more somber than expected. Of course neither Mien nor Koos has the courage to tell Wiep they don't really like it. Neighbor Rik can't stop flirting with Lydie no matter what.
Çanci's unannounced visit is preceded by the arrival of a statue for Wiep. Mien wants Koos to help Hulja relocate on the same day he plans to look at a boat with Jopie. Then she learns Buurman Buys will be visiting that day as well.
Koos objects when Mien wants to buy a new sofa. Hans spots Lydie's awkwardly parked car on the street and moves it. Naturally Lydie thinks that either the police towed it away or else somebody stole it.
