Gordon's parents Graham and Sandra visit Scotland from Yorkshire and Ian and Gordon bring them to Latimer Crescent to meet Beth and Eric. Christine turns up with her own take on the Scottish attractions to visit, at which point Ian and Gordon grab the opportunity to pop out for some herbal tea for Sandra.
When they get back, Cathy and Colin have arrived after sensing there may be the chance of a drink, and the chat has turned to further delights for visitors to Scotland. And the men step outside to admire Graham's beautifully restored vintage car. Despite the interference of the unexpected guests, the tea party is all going rather well until the conversation turns to Scotland's sporting successes.
