Whilst Neil sees in Robert everything that he is not but wishes he could be - successful, skilled, clever, funny - their eldest son, Garth, quickly falls for the Dillons' equally charming adopted daughter, Petra - much to younger brother 'Little' Neil's amusement.

For Fiona, Neil's newfound mix of inadequacy and jealousy is just another thing to deal with...
