Series 3, Episode 1 - The Girlfriend
It's finally happened: Adam is bringing a girl (or as dad would say, 'female') home for dinner. Mum is so excited, and immediately takes a shine to 20-something Emma, who is definitely marriage material.
The evening doesn't begin well, though, as Emma witnesses dad washing his foot in the toilet bowl, after he's trod in some dog muck.
Adam and Emma get on brilliantly, but just as things start going smoothly, the Goodmans have an unexpected guest: Katie is an adorable-looking, 8 year-old girl, for whom Adam used to babysit. Katie's mum has had to go to hospital, so now the family have to look after little Katie for the evening.
To Jonny's delight, Katie has a massive crush on Adam, whilst taking an instant dislike to his girlfriend, Emma. But things get worse when Adam suddenly gets sent sexy photos, on his phone, from Emma's sister. Adam doesn't know what to do, but Emma must never find out.
Unfortunately, little Katie finds the photos on his phone, and threatens Adam she'll tell his girlfriend if Adam doesn't spend the whole evening playing with her, doing everything she wants. Adam is distraught: he's being blackmailed by an 8 year-old girl.
When Emma sees Adam, covered in make-up, crawling around with little Katie on his back, while barking like a dog, she starts to get suspicious that something's up. But when Katie makes Adam hold her hand, saying, "If you let go, I'll tell Emma all about the photos", what will Adam do? Absolutely agony for Adam. Absolute pleasure for Jonny.
