Everybody goes a little gaga as Flora after saying her prayers hears the sound of a crying baby and discover a child left on the doorstep of Paradise Lodge.

While Flora goes to get the baby something to eat, Cissie finds it and calls her Margaret Rose and baptises it with Lucozade. Cissie does not even check whether the baby is a boy or girl.

Flora calls the baby Charles Andrew after discovering he is a boy but it transpires that Mildred's gay son has sent a card telling her that he is sending her a surprise. She thinks the baby is his despite it being rather unlikely.

A policeman later pick up Cissie at Mothercare for causing an obstruction and cannot believe the baby could be hers. Flora later finds out that the baby's grandfather is 'Wally Batty' who has his grand-kids staying with him and had left the baby to be cared for temporarily as his wife had to be taken to hospital after breaking a tibia.

The old dears show their caring side in this episode with much confusion as to who the baby could belong to. Even Flora is sweet. The poor sergeant at the police station, he will never forget his encounter with Cissie.
