Martin's aunt Joan receives a visit from an old flame, John Slater, with whom 30 years before she had an affair. His visit re-lights old flames but Martin takes an immediate dislike to him. He is concerned as to his true intentions but also his health when medical tests reveal a serious condition. Martin also has his own problems with 15-year old Melanie Gibson who develops an infatuation with him after he repairs her dislocated shoulder. Things get serious however when she shows up in his bed. Al Large finally sees his chance when Elaine apparently breaks up with her boyfriend. Written by garykmcd
