When a twenty-year old girl turns up on Lee's doorstep and announces that he might be her father, Lee goes into immediate denial. Until, that is, he remembers a one-night stand he had at a party that Tim threw to celebrate the end of his accountancy exams back in the 1980s. Is Lee mature - or rich enough - to be a father?
