The group drink champagne to mark Janet accepting new boyfriend Noel's marriage proposal. But Robin expresses reservations.

Further details

Janet's new boyfriend Noel has unexpectedly asked her to marry him, and she has joyfully accepted. All of the smokers, or most of them anyway, are delighted for her - even more so when she decides to celebrate with champagne over lunch in the smoking room.

It's supposed to be a happy occasion but Robin is concerned that she might be rushing into things, and his constant sniping eventually causes Janet to snap - setting in motion a series of revelations that will change the lives of more than one of the smokers for ever.
