Storyline

Dave Rafter was looking forward to a 'second youth', alone again with his wife Julie, after daughter Rachel and lately successful son Nathan's marriages and 'immature' adult son Ben moved out - to help next-door Greek neighbor mate Nick 'Carbo' Karandonis house-sit his parents' home, only neither knows how to run a household. The house-mate the boys take in is the very nurse, who David felt humiliated by after an overdoses of Viagra to celebrate his re-won freedom. Then things go really wrong: Ron Barrett's firm, where the parents work, downsizes: Dave is kept only half-time. Rachel flees back home, being domestically abused. Nathan is happy with his fresh wife and business-partner but they want to save capital by moving in 'for a few months'. The parents ultimately accept Nathan's rent, especially when Julie's elderly widowed dad Ted proves unable to live alone anymore and must be taken in. Written by KGF Vissers
