Series 4, Episode 1 - Wedding Anniversary
Beth and Eric think their son Ian is taking them out for their 30th wedding anniversary dinner - but find instead that he and his boyfriend Gordon have organised a surprise party at their house. And the gang's all there.
What more could you ask from a party? The buffet table is groaning with food, the champagne is flowing and Christine has brought a homemade trifle as a present.
There is a wander down memory lane, a look at the Bairds' wedding album and an illuminating quiz.
Ian tries to keep the focus on the anniversary couple, but a drunken Cathy tries to prompt wedding proposals from reluctant boyfriends Ian and Alan; and treats Eric, Beth and the rest of the guests to a replay of her and Colin's first wedding dance.

A grand return for Two Doors Down, and Christine, the peerless Elaine C Smith, had made a trifle for Eric and Beth's 30th anniversary. She had toyed, though not that hard, with thoughts of a gift. "Some porcelain... a voucher? But then I went into my cupboard. I saw the four tins of fruit cocktail. And ah just thought: fuck it. Trifle it is!" It is a... decent enough... trifle, the gloss on which is only mildly spoilt by Christine's rare sotto voce warning. "Don't take too long. Cos technically that cream needs to be used by midnight..."Euan Ferguson, The Observer, 13th January 2019
