  • Episode Description
  • Sally is terrified that she might be pregnant, so she takes a pregnancy test and asks the other girls to do the same so that she knows what a negative result looks like. In her fluster she gets the tests muddled up. One of the girls is pregnant, but which one? Is it Sally? Well, she did have sex with awful Peter on the night that Patrick came to save her from the non-existent spider. Is it Jane? Well, with James away, she was so desperate for sex that she even briefly toyed with the idea of doing it with Jeff. But the pizza delivery man was on hand, so to speak. So, yes, it could be Jane. Is it Susan? She reveals that she has recently discovered she has a medical problem which prevents her from having children. It would take a miracle for her to be pregnant. So, who is?moreless

    • (Susan finds Patrick with Steve at the fertility clinic)

      Susan: You didn't really think you got to have sex with one of the nurses, did you?
      : I did.
      Susan: Patrick, you are a sad and twisted man.
      Steve: No, Susan. He did.

    • Sally: I’ll get the speech about how wonderful I am. Basic rule, isn’t it? More wonderful you are at the start of the speech, the more dumped you are at the end.

    • Jane: I'm absolutely 100% not pregnant. Look at it, Sally. I'm in the clear. I've shagged and shagged and shagged and all the little bastards missed!

    • Jane: I was really suprised when you got it together with Julia. I always pegged you for - well, you know... Jeff: Gay? Jane: Dying alone.

    • Jeff: So sometimes, ugly people could be really beautiful on the inside. Jane: No that never happens.

    Notes (4)

    • The end credits are scrolling upwards in front of a white background while a blue line slowly appears from the top centre. This is a reference to the kind of pregnancy tests (a blue line indicating pregnancy) which were important to this episode's storyline.

    • Sarah Alexander (Susan) was very ill when they filmed the scene in the hospital.

    • This episode was taped on August 28, 2004.

    • This episode marks the final regular appearance of Richard Coyle as Jeff Murdock.

    Trivia (2)

    • Steve blurting out "hippo" during a moment of confusion is based on a similar mishap involving Jeff in season 3 episode 2, "Faithless."

    • When Sally thinks that she is pregnant, she names the possible father as Peter, the man with whom she was in bed when Patrick arrived to "save" her from the spider in the episode "Remember This".

    Allusions (1)

    • The title refers to the series theme song, but also the three women's 'perhaps' pregnancies, as we see the three stories of why all might be pregnant.
