Series One

Episode One
On her hen night, as she watches Louise stage dive into a crowded dancefloor and Karen recreate the Bacardi ad on the club bar, Donna realises with absolute drunken clarity that single girls have more fun. In this state of inebriation she declares the wedding off. Karl responds by running into the kitchen wall and begging Donna not to leave him. Donna moves in with Karen, and so life begins.
Episode Two
Donna decides that it's time to completely re-evaluate her life and puts herself back on the job market. A "tired and emotional" Karen manages to do the same thing by bursting into tears in front of her class of infants, and quickly resolves to live the life of a free-spirited alcoholic. Meanwhile, Louise decides that she's fallen in love with Karen's most recent conquest, 'Thingy'.

Series Two

Episode Five
Karen dates Justin, the man who won't stop crying. Louise becomes addicted to stealing.
