The hottest summer in years has hit Craiglang. The Clansman is like an oven, so the pensioners can't even sit in to keep cool. Jack, Victor and the rest of the gang decide that the best idea is to go to the park. Navid also has problems, as a neddy mum complains that his chocolates have melted due to the weather. He then tries putting them in the fridge, but the chocolates then stick together.
Meanwhile, Isa has received a letter saying that her estranged husband, Harry, has died. Her friends comment that she is completely single once again, but Isa has difficulty trying to attract a man's attention due to the fact her friends are more attractive than she is. Using Navid's advice, Isa goes out with Edith in an attempt to "look like Cameron Diaz", but the plan backfires because Edith meets an old boyfriend named John MacLaughlin who is equally as ugly.
At the park, Jack and Victor can't even get a park bench because the park is mobbed. They notice that the best bench in the park is the one at the top of the hill, which is partially covered in shade and still gets some sunlight. The pair decide to arrive early next morning, but they find that Winston and Tam have beaten them to the best bench in the park. Jack and Victor can't imagine how Winston and Tam keep beating them to it, until it becomes clear that the ice cream van driver is taking them through the staff entrance.
Isa comes to terms with the fact that she's not going to meet a new man at her age. However, she meets a handsome pensioner who sits next to her in the park. Isa offers to go together to the Pavillion, but unfortunately, the pensioner is a dirty old man who masturbates in front of Isa.
At 6am the next morning, Jack and Victor sneak into the park, getting soaked by the sprinklers. They finally get the best seat, but the weather turns from sunshine into snow. The pair refuse to leave despite being frozen.
After the credits roll, Isa helps the police detective to identify the pervert she met in the park.
