Laura has a work placement and, with Janet out at work and Alan too clumsy to be safely left with a baby, Laura takes up Jamie's offer to babysit.

Then Jamie finds out he has an exam on the same day but doesn't want to let Laura think he's shirking his responsibility. He is forced to leave Emily with his last resort babysitters - Mike and Beth. Mike is confident they can cope. Beth is confident she can cope. But when they're presented with a newborn medical crisis they discover they're not quite as capable as they thought.

Sandra, sick of Keith's increasing employment torpor, pushes him into getting a job. Desperate to get Sandra off his back, Keith takes a work-from-home job in the paper. But he's surprised to find he is working in the sex industry.
