Susan, still missing Janey, decides that she needs some female company and so invites Abi, the daughter of a hated cousin of Ben's, to dinner. Ben, as usual, is against her idea.

Abi turns out to be the most accident-prone, clumsy person you could meet... qualities that make her someone who Ben would like to never see again. He'll just have to get used to her though because Susan invites her to come and live with them!
