Fatal Extraction

Del has tired of being the dutiful father and his relationship with Raquel is showing the strain. He ventures to see whether he can still pull the birds when he chances to meet a divorced woman at the dentists and soon wishes he'd kept his mouth firmly shut.

Further details

Raquel is worried that Santa will be too busy down the 121 Club getting drunk, to provide Damien with any presents.

Rodney raises the problem with Del, who explains he is brokering a deal to get hold of some Russian ex-military Camcorders to make ends meet over Christmas.

Rodney's marriage is going so well that they have decided to try to have a baby. So much so he's getting phone calls from Cassie at work, telling him to come home because she's the right temperature.

Raquel leaves Del, staying at Rodney and Cassandra's place. Del does what any man would: Organises a date with Beverly, his dentist's receptionist. He cancels it as soon as he comes to his senses.

A changed man, he invites Raquel back. After drunkenly starting a riot on the estate he sells the Russian gear to both the cops and the robbers.

All seems calm, but Beverly seems to be stalking Del.
