Eddy's taken up residence in a new age commune, and with Patsy now in New York and Saffy away at uni, Mother squats in the otherwise empty house, going on a shopping TV spree. But Edina's soon bored of her lifestyle, and Patsy's not having as much fun as she hoped - could a reunion be on the cards?

Further details

Eddy and Patsy decide to go their separate ways. Patsy flies to New York to try her hand as a magazine editor. A lonely Eddy joins a commune in search of her real self. Mother is left at home to become addicted to the shopping channel.

Soon both Eddy and Patsy realise that life just isn't the same without the other. Eddy hires a helicopter to track her best mate down. Fortunately, Patsy has become disillusioned with her new job. When Eddy turns up, Patsy is only too pleased to make a break and head back to London.
