Series 2, Episode 6 - Gotcha

The first anniversary of Steve and Susan's first date is fast approaching, and the pressure appears to be piling on him to propose. But is he ready? Susan certainly seems keen to entice him when they head out for a meal in a posh restaurant.

Further details

It's the anniversary of Steve and Susan's first date and they are going to a posh restaurant to celebrate. Inevitably, speculation mounts that Steve may propose to Susan. While Jeff and Patrick advise him, Jane and Sally get drunk and miserable at the prospect of being left on the shelf forever.

Some hurtful comments from Jane make Susan feel insecure, so she begins to view a meal in the restaurant as some sort of military campaign to get Steve to prove he prefers her to Jane. Wearing a gorgeous dress, she tries some desperate measures to arouse Steve, and finally dupes him into admitting he wants to marry her.
