It's not long before Don and Jason find themselves on a double date with the girls at their local. Felicity finds Don a hoot - unlike Harriet, who concentrates on getting to know Jason instead.

Felicity soon proves Don's reservations about posh birds being prudes wrong when they go back his place. Thinking things are going well, she invites Don and Jason along for a weekend at her parents' country estate.

Felicity's father, fiercely protective of his only child, dislikes Don on sight. As the country pursuits begin Don doesn't seem to be able to prove him wrong, instead becoming increasingly impressed with Jason's performance - cheered on by a pleased Harriet. Convinced the family hate him, Don's evening goes from bad to worse when Felicity takes full charge in the bedroom.
