Martin lands himself a job in site maintenance at a disused Warehouse, and finds an impressive antique ring in the drain. Harriet, displeased at dating a site maintenance worker, sets up a meeting for Martin with an agent to the stars.

After signing, the agent introduces him to impressionist Nigel Lord his 'star client', who isn't happy to have a rival performer on his agent's books.

Meanwhile Neil's paranoia leads him to seek out the help of a psychoanalyst and Jean and Harriet find themselves coming to near blows over preparations for Martin's surprise 40th birthday party.
