Storyline

Having finally worked up the courage to ask Helen out on a date, James is not quite sure where to take her. Tristan convinces him that the first date is always the most important so he recommends that James take her to dinner at the Reniston, the poshest hotel outside of London. To his chagrin, James follows Tristan's advice and the date isn't very successful. To make matters worse, Tristan subsequently gets James to complete a foursome with two lively lasses and they meet Helen and Richard Edmundson in less than ideal circumstances. Tristan is less than enthused at having to care for the pigs Siegfried has acquired. James treats an itinerant family's sick horse. The vets seek the assistance of Sister Rose in finding a home for a stray dog. Written by garykmcd
