When an old acquaintance turns up boasting of her perfect life, Susan is on a mission to prove her own life is better. Meanwhile, Ben angers cyclists with his rant on a radio programme, and Abi is influenced by the wrong chef.
Ben decides to buy the property next door and turn it over for a profit, but circumstance... and Ben... get in the way. Elsewhere, Susan believes she's found the perfect mate for Michael, but there's an eerie familiarity to the girl.
Michael's gone for the weekend and Janey's moving back to her flat, so Susan fills the hole in her heart by adopting yet another stray. Elsewhere, Abi begins to question whether Roger is really interested in her.. or any females.
Ben's away for the week, and Susan's mother comes to help... or torment; love hits several of the family in different forms as Michael processes a break-up, Roger screws up his courage to ask a question, and Susan and Grace manage to find admirers.
