Following their disastrous encounter, Patrick seeks reassurance from Steve and Jeff, who explain to him the theory of the Melty Man, and Sally seeks reassurance from Jane and Susan, who try to comfort her with their own 'failure' experiences.
On average, men and women think about sex every six seconds. Shorten that to every second, and you've got Coupling.
This series centers around Susan and Steve (who are a couple), and Sally and Patrick join the gang as friends of Susan (and then Steve), while Steve pulls in his best friend Jeff and his crazy ex Jane.
