After agreeing not to rush into anything, Adam and his landlady Tina are now nine months into their relationship, and still taking it one day at a time.

As she commits all her energy to her dream venture, her friends and family take a backseat. Jenny and Pete struggle as the demands of work and family drag them in opposite directions.

Bored with his tedious work selling insurance to unsuspecting pensioners, he is delighted when he is given a way into the lucrative Cheshire set by his client Nikki.

When Adam suggests to Tina that they would create great children, she is caught off-guard and suggests Adam would make a better granddad than dad. As Adam tries to convince himself to drop the idea of children, Tina feels torn about what she really wants. At work, Adam and his familiar-looking colleague realise why they recognise each other, and decide to keep their distance. Back home, Matt has a shocking piece of news for Adam. Karen meets Justin's representative, and polar opposite, Benjamin Stevens. His concerns over the health of the business cause Karen to put pressure on her star author Bridie. Pete arranges a tea dance at the care home, and Adam and David receive some sage advice in return for their fancy footwork. David decides that if he wants to keep up with a woman like Nikki, he will need a makeover. Jenny revels in her newfound power at work and inadvertently suggests firing some of her colleagues. Pete is horrified when he discovers she is doing the dirty work and choosing which of her workmates will get fired. As Jenny begins to spout business jargon at home, her new persona drives a wedge between them.
