Quotes

[after the concert, Louisa leads Martin into the woods. They kiss passionately]
Dr. Martin Ellingham: [breaking off the kiss] You're very emotional, Louisa.
Louisa Glasson: Sssh!
Dr. Martin Ellingham: What?
Louisa Glasson: You're not obliged to spoil it, you know.
Dr. Martin Ellingham: Are you wearing perfume?
Louisa Glasson: Yes.
Dr. Martin Ellingham: Is it sandalwood?
Louisa Glasson: No. It's Kenzo Flower.
Dr. Martin Ellingham: I wondered whether it was pheromones. Androsterone-5 has a sort of sandalwood odour - faintly urine-like, if you prefer. It's the pheromone associated with the onset of the menstrual cycle, and it's often accompanied by mood swings.

At least the Doctor tries.....

This episode focuses almost exclusively on Louisa and Doc Martin. When it begins, the pair are going on a date to a concert. It turns out one of the musicians is an old friend of Louisa's and she'll only be in town a short time. Following the concert, Louisa gets romantic with Martin--only to have him totally spoil the moment due to his horrible inability to deal with normal social cues due to his Asperger's Syndrome. Louisa realizes that a relationship with someone like this is hopeless and breaks up with him.

Martin behaves VERY uncharacteristically after this. Instead of just moping, he decides to make some changes--and he's even pleasant to others! However, Louisa isn't impressed--mostly because she doesn't seem to know what she wants or expects from him. She also makes it difficult for him to know what to do as a result. Do these two have any hope at all as a couple? And, what's to become of Louisa's friend-- as she has a horrible accident and is bed-ridden.
