Episode Summary

God Has A Black Heart
Paula's keen to help Gary get back on his feet after his break-up with Mel, so sets him up with old school friend Sonya. However, Gary cannot be swayed by the body beautiful, and resists the opportunity to jump into bed with Sonya. He's determined to stay celibate until he finds the girl of his dreams. But a night on the town, with Kelvin, shows him that finding a woman with similar aspirations could prove difficult. Meanwhile, Gary's younger brother, Michael, is on a mission to have as much sex as possible. His forthcoming eighteenth birthday seems like the ideal time to start. However, it's not entirely straight forward for Michael, on account of the fact he has cerebral palsy. Gary's appalled when Michael reveals that Natasha, a girl he's met through the internet, has agreed to come along to his party and fulfil his wish. Michael's relying on Gary to help put his plan into action, and make it a birthday to remember. When their parents uncover part of the plan, Gary has a change of heart. He devises a cunning plan, that allows Michael and Natasha their intimate moment, albeit in the back of Kelvin's van! Elsewhere, Paula, who's feeling starved of attention, is given a much needed confidence boost thanks to some well-timed compliments from Floyd.moreless
