Episode Summary

George and Pauline have decided, after much discussion, to give their marriage another try. George has agreed to not mention Pauline's affair with 'Rat Fink' Lucas and Pauline has agreed to do the same regarding George's fling with Doreen Slater. It has also been agreed that both children will be given fair and eqaul attention from both parents and that they will make more of an effort to spend time together as a family and alone as well. Things seem to be going along reasonably well until Mr. Lucas suddenly announces that he wants access to 'his' child! Surely Rosie belongs to George? Pauline certainly thinks that she does and George is hopeful but Mr. Lucas is quite determined that Rosie Mole is, in fact, Rosie Lucas. Can Adrian cope with all this pressure in his life? It seems that he is slowly but surely falling apart but nobody has noticed. Of course, he is used to being sidelined while the adults in his like create as much havoc as is humanly possible but he is not sure if this latest round of problems can be dealt with. Just being himself is difficult enough without the people who are supposed to love and care for him making his existence more difficult with each passing day. How will he cope? Can he handle all this trauma?moreless

    George is delighted with his new daughter and Adrian finds himself impressed with his little sister in spite of wondering what it would be like to have a baby in the house. Pauline is a doting mother who thinks Rosie is marvellous. All of this should be a recipe for domestic harmony until Mr. Lucas asserts that he believes that Rosie is HIS child and that he wants access to her forthwith!

    Can Adrian take much more pressure or will he collapse under the strain?moreless
