Jeff has been going out with Julia for some time. But then the disconcertingly lovely Wilma propositions him in the stationery cupboard. Meanwhile Jane meets and quickly unnerves the ruggedly handsome James under similar circumstances. James presents the religious programme and Jane soon finds herself in competition with the Supreme Being of the Universe. While Jane tries to convince James of the benefits of sex before marriage, Jeff finds himself a rabbit in Wilma's headlamps.
