Louise's mum, Eileen, turns up and announces that she's moving in, after having been dumped by her toyboy. Karen is far from happy with this. Donna is trying to make an impression on Sam's friends but does so by insulting them. Louise and Karen go out with Eileen who makes a show of herself by doing lesbian dancing with her daughter to attract men. Sam gives Donna an ultimatum - it's Karl or him.
