Would Jo Swinson stand at the back of the Commons chamber to listen to the session again?
Would any MP offer the seven months pregnant equalities minister a seat?
And after last week's row over whether such behaviour was sexist or not - would she accept it?
Alas, 'twas all for nowt.
The Liberal Democrat MP decided, possibly rather sensibly given the circumstances, to give this week's session a miss.
Which is not to say there were no accusations of unparliamentary behaviour this time around. Quite the opposite in fact.
The Prime Minister received a telling off from the Speaker for effectively accusing Ed Miliband of being a conman over his energy price freeze pledge.
The ruling did not go down well on the Tory benches, where Mr Bercow himself once sat.
They jeered as the Speaker told the Prime Minister his comments were "below the level" expected.
Not that it was all one-way traffic. A Labour MP heckled "Get on with it" as a Tory MP droned on and on struggling to get a question out.
The Prime Minister had to hit back. He had been put in a bind by a former leader of his own party.
The Labour leader taunted Mr Cameron over Sir John Major's backing for an intervention in the energy market of the kind that, Mr Miliband said, the Prime Minister had once denounced as Marxism.
"Red Sir John" might not have quite the same ring to it, but it might just put those "Red Ed" taunts to bed. For a little while at least.
