Transmitted on: Friday 13th April 2007


Episode Summary

Susan is determined to seduce Ben but he is simply not in the mood!

The next morning finds Susan really grumpy. Janey is sending sexy photos to her boyfriend Peter from her mobile to keep her relationship fresh. Susan realises her mobile is very old and decides to break it so she can buy a new one.

An old patient of Ben’s (Henry) comes in for treatment and whilst in the dental chair, in the middle of telling Ben he is about to leave his wife who he feels at the age of 42 is getting too old for him, and that he is having an affair with a much younger women, Henry dies! Ben has just realised when Roger bursts in and becomes in a panic when Ben wants him to move the body. A dead body in a dental chair is not good for business! Ben threatens Roger and whilst trying to move the body Ben finds a pair of sexy panties on Henry which he hides in his trouser pocket.

Janey introduces Peter to the family and Susan takes their picture with her new mobile. Ben and Roger are late back, Roger is scrubbing and scrubbing his hands to get rid of the guilt. Ben tells Roger not to tell Abi, or Susan about the dead man cheating on his wife.

Susan tries again to seduce Ben but he is still not in the mood. When Susan questions him he acts guilty, and she knows he is lying about something.
Celia, Henry’s wife comes to the house to talk to Ben about Henry. It is apparent that Henry has been using Ben as a golf alibi for the last ten years. Ben is just shutting the door on her when Susan comes into the hall. Ben tries to pass her off as a dental receptionist and again Susan accuses him of lying.
Abi thinks Roger is acting strange too, they both decide they need to freshen things up a bit and that Roger and Ben may be seeing other people.
Susan takes a picture of her naked breasts and sends it to Ben!

Roger is still convinced he will be sent to prison for moving the body, when Stacey arrives in the dental surgery…she is Henry’s girlfriend and she wanted to see where Henry died. Ben is trying to console her when Celia arrives. Ben tells Celia that Stacey is his wife. Celia asks Ben to give the eulogy at Henry’s funeral. She is just kissing Ben when Susan arrives, and Ben tries to pass both women off as future receptionists. Susan had come to see if he got the picture of her breasts, but he hadn’t.

Janey has broken up with Peter because someone had sent a picture of naked breasts to his mobile. Susan realises that she has sent the picture of her breasts from Janey’s identical phone to Peter by mistake.

Ben is now questioned by Susan because he is acting strangely, still lying and all dressed up in his best suit. So when Susan finds the frilly pants in his trouser pocket she races to the door. Peter is there and tries to chat Susan up as he liked the picture she sent him so much. Dismissing him, Susan then goes to the surgery and bullies Roger until he tells her where Ben is. Susan bursts into Henry’s funeral and all hell breaks loose.
