Jonathan and Wendy meet through a magazine lonely hearts column and arrange to go on a blind date with a difference: it takes place in Jonathan's living room. Neither of them has particularly high hopes, having had bad romantic experiences in the past, but gradually they overcome their nerves and awkwardness and agree to make it a proper date over dinner. Rod Arkle & Bernadette Wood both return to play Jonathan & Wendy, hoping to get it right this time even though they've never got it right before. A couple of emergency phone calls, a stereo system with a life of its own, and the biggest block of cheese known to man herald the start of a beautiful relationship... but can it last longer than the fifteen minutes, all their previous dates have managed?
