Series 1, Episode 4
Joyce is retiring and Alan has invited all of their friends round to the house for a party. Maureen latches on to their new neighbours, a young couple with children who have just moved from London in an attempt to stop feeling trapped 'in the sticks'.
John makes a tribute video for Joyce's retirement party but forgets to ask Trevor for his tribute.
During the party, Alan has some bad news for Joyce that could spoil the night for her. Although she might spoil it first as she confronts their new neighbours about the kid's bad behaviour.
