8:00pm – Friday, January 13 on ABC1
Susan (Zoe Wanamaker) wants to look her best for an impending school reunion. Ben (Robert Lindsay) is learning how to administer Cavitox and suggests Susan could try it. Susan dismisses the idea; she is fabulous as she is! Ben also tries to help Kenzo (Tayler Marshall) by suggesting he let a little girl in his class know he likes her by giving her a present – but who would know that Kenzo has such a big heart.
An old school friend, Mary, arrives to ask Susan to give the keynote speech at their forthcoming school reunion but lets it slip that Susan was not their first choice. Susan is further undermined when a younger replacement is hired at the Art Gallery where she works and, furious at what she sees as blatant ageism, quits.
In the end, Ben is driven to asking the vicar to talk to Susan and he duly tells her to focus on something that will bring a smile to her face… but did he really mean her to undergo a session of Cavitoxing from her newly-qualified husband.
Duly lifted from her depression, Susan’s speech is well-applauded at her school reunion – finally she is amongst friends… all of whom have had similar youth-prolonging treatment!
