Gerald introduces her to the landlord of the cottage, Bill Flack, as his secretary. Their privacy is soon invaded, first by the former occupants, Dora and her lovesick daughter, then by other locals including a very pregnant young woman and a menacing bull, Hamish and finally by Geralds wife, Alison, whose nursing experience comes in unexpectedly useful. After increasingly hilarious complications, Ruth and Alison ally themselves against Gerald, but Hamish the bull has the last word.
