Criminal lawyer Nicole faces the culinary jury as she tries to outdo Celeste’s night of fine food. And that means buying the biggest octopus she can find at the fish markets. One of her guests arrives without any underwear, but after that frivolity, the dinner party conversation turns serious. Stephen is upset after being called an idiot by Sheeneagh and Nicole is annoyed at Celeste’s critical comments. Sheeneagh is sick of all the talk about religion and the group’s hard marker is not too keen on the octopus either. Sheeneagh does love dessert but Stephen has trouble stomaching the chocolate mousse. An entertaining musical guest lightens the mood a little with everyone except Celeste. At the end of the night Nicole’s food has gone down a lot better than the conversation.
