Series 4, Episode 5 - Overnight
With their house in turmoil in the midst of the redecoration, new Latimer Crescent residents Alan and Michelle take refuge from the floor sanding with an overnight stay in neighbours Beth and Eric's house.
Michelle is keen that they are not going to be a nuisance and tries to get to bed as early as possible, but just as she heads upstairs, Christine arrives bearing rhubarb. Hot on her heels are Cathy and Colin, who turn up with the leftovers from their restaurant meal, which they generously hand over to Beth.
Alan has realised it is not easy to leave the sawdust behind - discovering it in the most inconvenient of places. It is decided that the only solution to completely rid it from all cracks is for him to have a bath.
Michelle finally goes to bed but leaves the others to chat about her. The discussion gets a bit pointed when Cathy weighs in, unable to contain her jealousy of Michelle's new relationship with Beth.
And when Alan reappears freshly scrubbed of sawdust, he discovers that he quite likes rhubarb.
