Guy and Mac are given the all clear to return to work. Caroline tries to make Mac remember their relationship but Guy keeps interfering. Guy also has to cope without a driving licence, Alan has to cope without sex, and Martin decides to dump Karen.

Further details

Mac and Guy are both given the all clear to return to work, which gives Caroline ample time to try and get Mac to remember their budding relationship. However, Guy's presence turns out to be more of a hindrance than a help which means she has to come up with even more innovative ways to try and prompt Mac's feelings for her to return.

Elsewhere, Guy has to live without his driving license and Alan has to live without sex, though he tries to convince Joanna that his sex life is anything but completely dormant. Martin meanwhile, decides to dump Karen but has a change of heart at the last minute and so has to swallow her mobile phone before she discovers his intentions.
