Diana and Paul are hosting a get together of old friends. One of the friends, Colin, has just lost his fiancée in a drowning accident. They are hoping to comfort him whilst catching up on old times. Evelyn and John are now new parents and Marge has come alone, as her husband, Gordon, is at home, ill in bed, but constantly phoning for advice! Marge is also happy to give unwanted advice to Evelyn for her baby's welfare and reveling in showing off her newly purchased shopping. Diana is bordering on becoming neurotic having convinced herself her husband Paul, is having an affair with Evelyn.
John and Evelyn constantly bicker with each other as everyone prepares for the arrival and comfort of the bereaved Colin!
