Series 2, Episode 4 - Builders
The old guys' lazy afternoon nap is cut short when Sally interrupts in her dressing gown; a burst water pipe has ruined her bathroom, could she trouble them to finish her shower in their bathroom? Tom and Roy readily agree, thrilled finally that Sally is in their house and, more excitingly, naked! It's a dream come true.
Sally's insurers agree to send the builders in which leaves her with another favour to ask of the guys - to move into their house on a temporary basis until the work is complete: a week at most. In preparation for Sally's arrival, Tom and Roy send themselves into a frenzy of pillow fluffing and scented candle placing in a bid to make everything perfect for the arrival of their new lodger.
Things go into overdrive as Tom and Roy fall over each other to impress Sally and can't do enough to please her, which in turn brings them to the decision that they can't let her go at the end of the week, and the two hatch a plan to delay the builder and extend Sally's stay.
All is going well but Tom and Roy's best behaviour to impress their guest is short-lived. While Sally goes along with the heavy breakfasts and high teas, she struggles to cope with the formality and constant mealtimes, so decides to accept Rajan's offers of trips away from the house.
Finally, in a bid to get the bathroom finished and Sally back into her own house, Tom and Roy decide enough is enough and finish it off themselves.
