The fact that Janet has a boyfriend is surprising enough, but the fact that he has proposed and she has accepted is even more surprising.
Most of the smokers are delighted for her, especially as she has brought champagne to the smoking room to celebrate. However, Robin is concerned - is she rushing things?
Robin has discovered some photographs from the 1987 company brochure. The ensuing nostalgia trip brings mixed emotions for the older smokers with Lilian enjoying the fact that she is now much slimmer. However, Barry and Sharon are more reluctant to revisit a time when Sharon was Barry's secretary.
A nightmare scenario for the smokers - they are trapped after hours at work. A snowstorm has brought gridlock to the roads and even worse, brought Sharon to seek refuge in the smoking room. Fortunately, Sally has a bottle of vodka.
Janet has suggested to her nephew, Dominic, that he shadow Robin for the day to help him with his university thesis. The 'Psychological Study of Workplace Dynamics' will undoubtedly involve a whole day in the smoking room.
