Uncle Albert's hints about his forthcoming birthday have been coming thick and fast but Del and Rodney try to pretend they haven't noticed - while secretly arranging a surprise party in the Nag's Head.
Del has been surprised by how successful Trigger has been at a dating agency and decides that he will give it a try as well. He registers under the name Derek Duvale and soon meets up with his first date, an actress called Raquel, who he treats to a steak lunch at the Hilton. They hit it off straight away and it looks like love is in the air.
Even Rodney seems to be having some success as he has persuaded barmaid 'Nervous Nerys' to go out on a date with him - despite Jevon and Mickey Pearce getting nowhere with her because they weren't macho enough for her.
But, as usual, everything is not as it seems and all three are in for a big surprise as their bubble is about to be burst one more time.
