Gaz decides it's time to make a proper commitment to Donna. Janet tries talking dirty for a living and Louise is in for a shock when she finally meets her real parents.

Further details

Gaz decides to ask Donna to marry him, but she's more concerned with getting a job - at the garage. She and Gaz can't stop having sex in the garage. Donna starts acting all blokey to put Gaz off her, which works a little too well.

Janet starts a new job - as a telephone sex line operator. She is rubbish at it and callers keep hanging up. She has to hide her job from Jonny who's worried his own bad habits are going to turn Corinthian bad. He decides to censor the whole house.

Louise meets her "real" mum and Dad and wants to move in with them, but it's turns out Daddy is a ginger, so they can't be related.

At the end of the episode, Gaz gets down on one knee and proposes to Donna.
