Gary needs a lodger to help pay the mortgage on his flat. Unfortunately, neither of his lodgers seems to be able (or willing) to pay any rent at all!
First there's Dermot and then Tony. Both of these fall for Deborah, who owns the flat upstairs, but get nowhere. Gary also has thoughts in that direction - his problem being the fact that he has a regular girlfiend, Dorothy, who he lives with!
1: Stag Night (6 Nov 97)
Dorothy decides that it's time Gary showed "real committment" by marrying her. Gary (reluctantly) agrees, though he suggests that buying a dog together might be an alternative. Gary and Tony set out to celebrate Gary's stag night.
2: Wedding (13 Nov 97)
The day of Gary and Dorothy's wedding arrives and both of them are having second thoughts. Tony, however, is "on a promise" if the wedding goes ahead.

4: Watching TV (27 Nov 97)
Gary, Dorothy, Tony and Deborah spend an evening watching television. At least, Tony tries to watch television. The other three seem hell bent on making Tony look like an idiot.
