Recap
Lucy sees a dog run over.
Shane tells Daphne that he just wants to be friends at the moment.
Max recognises the dog as belonging to a client of his.
Robinsons
Lucy is upset that the dog might have to go back. Max says he thinks the dog's name is Patch - the old man will be very worried - the dog is his life. Jim tells Lucy that they'd better go and check.
Ramsays
Shane is on the phone to an irate customer. He promises them that Max will call them back.
Just then Helen comes in. He tells Helen that running a house isn't very easy. Maria is out at the shop. Helen has had an invitation to Christine Hudson's wedding. She thinks Max and Maria would have had an invitation too. Helen says that maybe Shane could escort Maria.
Just then the phone rings again - it's another message for Max!
Bedford Street
Jim and Lucy arrive at the house. It looks very run down. Lucy says it's no wonder the dog ran away(!)
Jim knocks on the door but there's no answer at first. Then an old man comes to the door in a wheelchair - it's Mr Graham. He is a nice-looking old man. He says that he does have a dog, but he's lost him. Jim explains about the accident and says that they can bring him home, now that they know where he lives. The old man is very grateful and thanks Jim for his help. He also thanks Lucy for her part in saving his dog.
Robinsons
Lucy is saying goodbye to Patch. Helen says that Lucy has done a terrific job looking after him. Jim picks him up and puts him in the car.
Court
Max is waiting outside wearing his suit. His lawyer says that he'll probably lose his licence, but he'll try to keep the fine down.
Mr Graham's house
Jim and Lucy have returned the dog. Mr Graham is very pleased - he's had the dog since a pup. His wife gave him the pup originally. Mr Graham offers to pay time for the vet, but Jim says there's no need. Lucy says goodbye to Patch. Mr Graham invites Lucy to come round and walk the dog now and then. Lucy is very pleased. They wave goodbye.
Robinsons
Lucy is looking a bit sad. She says that she's happy to walk Patch, but it's not the same.
LUCY:(drearily) I suppose I was never meant to have a dog of my own.
She slopes off.
Max's bedsit
The new concierge, Mrs Harris, is a bit over-the-top in welcoming Shane(!) Max tells Shane that he's lost his licence and has a fine of $1000. Shane is appalled but Max says it could have been worse. Shane says that he hopes Nick is proud of himself. Max says it's not Nick's fault and what's done is done.
Shane asks what Max is going to do now. He says he doesn't want to move in with Shane - he doesn't think he can run to it. Max empties the teapot out of the window(!) and asks Shane what his plans are. Max says that Maria needs Shane, but he wants him to keep coming to see him.
SHANE: How about a beer?
MAX: Yeah, why not. I'm mean, I'm not driving anywhere, am I!
They laugh together.
Robinsons
Helen is trying to paint but doesn't feel very inspired today. She tells Jim that she's worried about Lucy - she's lonely and it might help if she has a dog of her own. Jim says the subject is closed. He loves dogs, but he hates how the kids get attached and then broken-hearted when something happens to the dog.
Just then he notices that Patch's collar is still there. He'll have to take it back.
Ramsays
Shane and Max are just saying goodbye. Mrs Harris comes to the door with clean linen for Max.
Mrs Harris admires Max's suit. He asks her to leave him alone for a bit, intimating that there has been a death in the family(!)
Just then, loud music starts up next door. Max despairs.
Mr Graham's house
Jim has come to return the collar. He chats with Mr Graham about Lucy. He says that the last dog was baited and it's put him off having another one. Mr Graham says that he and Patch are good pals. He says he's never been without a dog - even as a kid. Jim says he was the same - he had a sheepdog. Mr Graham says that no childhood is complete without a pet of some sort. Jim looks thoughtful.
Robinsons
Julie and Lucy come in from their walk. Lucy is still looking fed up.
Jim comes in. He tells Lucy that he wants them all to go together on a secret mission. They head off.
RSPCA Rescue Centre
Jim tells Lucy that it's time that they picked out a new family dog! She is very pleased.
There are lots of dogs at the RSPCA. They go round looking at them. After some time, Lucy comes across a puppy that she likes. Julie says that the dog looks puny, but agrees.
Later on, Lucy is cuddling the puppy and says she's going to call it Basil. Jim protests that it's a little girl dog(!) but Lucy likes the name.
HELEN: Well, that's certainly put the smile back on her face!
JIM: Basil?!
