Trust Never Sleeps

Janey throws a party when Ben and Susan leave…or so she thinks.

Transmitted on: Friday 21st September 2001


Episode Summary

Ben has another assistant and this she was married to a dentist herself. He ran off with his younger assistant. Ben is trying to get into the bathroom. Janey is in there and Nick is waiting outside too. No one can use the other loo as Nick cracked it. Susan wants to talk to Ben in private. She has 'found' Janey's diary. There is nothing in it about Ben. He is hurt.

He tries yet again to get in the bathroom, but Michael nips in first. Nick thinks he is telepathic as he guessed what Michael was holding up, eventually. Nick has had another go at fixing Ben and Susan's bathroom toilet and cracked it in half. Janey got an A for her French and would like a party. Susan says as she trusts Janey she can have one while they stay away at friends in Oxford. Ben thinks she is crazy.

Ben and Susan set out for Oxford. Stop at an off license and overhear the salesman talking about a girl whose parents are mad enough to leave her alone to have a party. They decide to sneak home and make sure as well. They get caught in the bedroom and don't want Janey to find them as she will think they don't trust her. Then the partygoers arrive.

Ben and Susan start to drink the wine they had bought. A neighbour Mrs. Norton calls Susan on her mobile to say the music is very loud. Susan says she is in Oxford. Ben and Susan get into bed, all the youngsters come in to put their coats on the bed. Michael tries to pick up Sophie. A couple come in and leap on the bed. Janey follows and throws them out of her parents bedroom. Michael tries to pick up the same girl unsuccessfully. Ben needs to wee, but the loo is broken. Nick tries to pick up a girl unsuccessfully. Ben contemplates relieving himself in the basin.

Mrs. Norton calls Susan and says she can see a man urinating out of the window. Susan realises it is Ben and shuts the window. Mrs. Norton now says she can see a woman there and they are arguing. Michael tries to pick up a girl and he too is unsuccessful. Ben decides he needs to get to the bathroom and just makes it when the girls come in. Ben is trapped behind the shower curtain. The girls leave and Nick comes in for a smoke.

Ben asks him for help and Nick suggests he climbs out of the window. Nick pulls Bens towel off and Janey comes in and discovers her father hanging naked outside the bathroom. Janey rings Susan but Susan says she can't help as she is in Oxford.
