The Bishop of Mulberry is to officiate at the christening of Alice and Hugo's baby. Geraldine and Owen are to be the godparents, while Frank and Jim act as god-grandparents.
When an amazed David finds that he and Geraldine are well-matched, he asks her to marry him. When he goes to some considerable lengths to demonstrate that he is prepared to change himself for her, she consents. Sense prevails, however, and Geraldine manages to extricate herself from the nuptials.
Against all the odds, the baby does get christened, even if Owen's generosity as a godparent is a little underwhelming.
