Series 3, Episode 6 - The Girl With One Heart
Susan's hosting a dinner party at the flat, and Sally's faced with meeting Patrick's new girlfriend for the first time. Only, he's told the beautiful Jennifer that Sally's a lesbian...
Susan has invited everyone over for dinner, which as we know is just asking for trouble.
Steve is particularly worried because Susan has recently redecorated the bathroom - and removed the lock, thus robbing him of his Fortress of Solitude. Sally's worry is that Patrick is bringing his new girlfriend: she's frightened that she will overcompensate her feelings of hostility towards her new rival by being embarrassingly nice. Patrick dimly perceives there might be a problem, so has told Jennifer that Sally is a lesbian.
Jennifer turns out to be Sally's worst nightmare: "slim and interesting". She pays Jennifer so many compliments that Jennifer assumes Sally is making a pass at her. Over dinner, Sally is horrified to discover that Jennifer thinks she is a lesbian. She furiously blurts out, in front of everyone, that it's Patrick she's mad about, not Jennifer. Ouch.
