Series 4, Episode 4 - When Love Walks In
Eli's up to his old tricks again. This time, he's trying to sell the factory to Leonard Longbottom, a property developer who's going to flatten it and build 100 offices on the ground space. The only problem is, as Nellie owns 50% of Pledge's Purer Pickles, Mr Longbottom has to get her signature on the contract too.
Eli suggests that he tries to woo Nellie at Stan's daughter's wedding. Unfortunately, Leonard soon wants more than just the factory and the house - he wants Nellie as well!
Nellie starts to get "a feeling" too, especially when he sings that song "Idleswine" and she starts to hear wedding bells in the air. Unfortunately Leonard gets the jitters every time he thinks about popping the question, so he takes her out to a fancy restaurant, complete with Eli hiding in the next booth to help the hapless Romeo along.
However, she soon finds out Leonard Longbottom's real reason for interest in the family, and he, along with Eli, get a face full of trifle.
