Even if some of the hosts have eight bedrooms and a chocolate fountain, one wean from Chernobyl is not impressed and Granda Joe's new ‘friend’ has started a Cold War. Pauline, Jeanie and Marie Louise talk condoms, blow-dries and the downsides to a bomb damaged bargain. Pauline discovers why it really matters whether Granda Joe bought a cream horn or a cream finger and whether the Stations of the Cross is a suitable place for a date.
