Relationship Happens

Ben and Susan go off to a couples’ retreat for a weekend (at which they prove to less than ideal guests), leaving Janey and Michael vying for the affections of Michael’s new boyfriend – but the triangle is more Bermuda than eternal.

Transmitted on: Friday 29th July 2011

Episode Summary

Susan insists that she and Ben go away for the weekend to a couples’ retreat. Janey and Michael are delighted to have the house to themselves, but Ben thinks the whole thing is a joke.
Michael’s new boyfriend, Matt, comes over to return Mikey’s watch – he invites Janey out clubbing with them and much to Michael’s annoyance, she accepts. Janey and Matt get on like a house on fire which becomes a little awkward when Matt dumps Michael but wants to remain friends with Janey. Michael is devastated and he and Janey fall out when he discovers that she is still spending time with Matt. Janey eventually redeems herself when Matt shows his true colours and Micahel overhears her sticking up for her little borther and giving Matt his marching orders.
Ben misbehaves throughout every activity and the weekend culminates with the pair of them being thrown out after Ben makes Susan laugh during a meditation session. They don’t care, they know they don’t need a couples’ retreat to keep things fresh - their marriage is as solid as the mugs they made in pottery class…
