In this episode...
When Adam is invited back to Sarah's place after meeting her at a concert it all seems too good to be true, until he's introduced to Sarah's dog, Wilfred. Wilfred offers him a bong and quickly sizes up Adam as a lightweight. Wilfred encounters Adam again during the night and has no problem coercing him into making nachos. Adam awakes from a bad dream, unsure of exactly what he's got himself into. When Sarah leaves to do some shopping Wilfred explains to Adam the source of Sarah's unhappiness. Adam tries to help by cleaning up the yard but a discovery spooks him into a panic. His attempt at escape is interrupted by Sarah, who easily convinces him to stay for dinner. Even Wilfred appears to be warming to Adam, providing him with a change of clothes and even accompanying him to the pub. Over a couple of beers Wilfred questions Adam's motives and reminds him that he's the one who'll have to pick up the pieces if he walks out on Sarah. Back home, some dinner, some TV and our young lovers already seem to be slipping into a relationship of convenience.

She gives Adam the 'single mum' speech-she and Wilfred come as a package. Adam convinces her that he loves Wilfred and to prove it he decides to spend some quality time with him. Wilfred is in his den - depressed. He's sleeping more than usual and he's gone off his food. He says he's very sick and "could be on the way out" - this may have something to do with the pizza Adam bought him the night before. He gives Adam a list of instructions of what to do should he die. Because Adam has done the "naughty boy" on Sarah - he is therefore obliged to look after her. Adam and Wilfred have a bonding session in the den - swilling beers and pulling bongs. Wilfred bemoans his lost tennis balls. A cheerful Adam offers to climb on the roof and retrieve them. In doing so, he falls and has to be taken to hospital. He wakes to find Sarah by his side. She tells him that Wilfred has been worried sick and has been fretting. When Adam arrives back home in a neck brace - Wilfred greets him with genuine glee. But this is short lived.
