Scandinavian couple Lotte and Marie have moved in to Jessop Square and Brenda and Jenny are determined to make friends with them. They discover that the Palmers have beaten them to it which leaves them rattled.

Lotte and Marie invite Brenda and Jenny to a Cultural Exchange evening but not before they accidentally announce that they are a couple too and that Tim and Tony (Dan Skinner) are their gay friends.

Jenny gives Tim a new book and thinks she is hinting to him about being a dad and also gives him the task of building a cot. Tony tells Tim he is going to have to master the skills of being a dad before their baby arrives.
