- Daphne bumps into a woman in the dark who screams.
Daphne puts the light on and finds the woman is Sarah, who she recognises from the bank. Sarah says that Des invited her to stay and strops off to bed.
Clarkes, the following morning
Daphne asks Des if he's got something going with Sarah. Just then Sarah comes out and Daphne glowers at her. Sarah says she's moved in with them, thanks to Des. Daphne doesn't look pleased.
Des tries to go to work in his pyjamas so he won't have to face The Wrath Of Daphne(!) but she calls him back to get the whole story. Des explains that Sarah is his first cousin, but Daphne says that he still should have asked her about Sarah moving in. Des insists that it's only a temporary arrangement.
Terry is bored when Paul is away at work. She says all her friends are working so she has no company. Paul suggests she goes round to see Daphne.
When Paul has gone, the phone rings and it's Mad Charles. He's ringing to see if she's changed her mind about the tape. Terry hangs up.
Shane is clearing up when Paul comes round (Shane is giving him a lift). Paul helps him to wash up. The kitchen is a bit of a mess as the Ramsay boys struggle to get used to domestic bliss.
Danny comes in and is annoyed to find that all his clothes are crinkled.
Miss Drew's place
Max arrives and is stunned to find that she is young and attractive. She shows him in to start the plumbing job. They chat in French. Luckily I speak French, so I know that they introduce themselves and tell each other use their first names (Miss Drew's first name is Kate) Kate offers Max a cup of coffee and a croissant and he asks if he can have bread with Vegemite(!) instead.
Max listens to the water pipes and says, "Zut, alors!"
Then they switch back to English and Kate says that if he can fix the pipes, she'll not only re-mark his essay, but she'll come over and fix Max the best meal he's ever had! Max is pleased.
Mad Charles is at the shops. He sees Daphne, and it turns out they know each other! He offers to buy her a coffee and puts her things in the boot of his car. (Oh dear, be careful, Daphne!)
Des and George are having a problem at work - something isn't right. But George is distracted and is thinking about Eileen. He's arranged to meet her for lunch and doesn't want to be late after what happened last time!
DES: George? Give her a kiss for me, will you?
Daphne arrives home and Terry follows her in. She wants to know how Daphne knows Charles - she saw him drop Daphne off.
Terry thinks Daphne and Charles are in cahoots. Daphne doesn't know what Terry is talking about. Daphne says that Father Barry couldn't run the centre without Charles - he's a wealthy businessman who donates a lot of money to charity. Daphne thinks he's a nice, charming man.
TERRY: I used to think that once.
Daphne says that she's having dinner with Charles tonight. Terry storms out.
Eileen is fussing over George (he is still recouperating). Eileen puts her bag down on George's foot and hurts him. George keeps bringing his wife up, much to Eileen's displeasure. George tells Eileen about the bank and how he and Des will have to work on something at home tonight and she gets stroppy. She decides to head off. George is very confused.
Eileen comes round to see Terry. She wants to borrow some herbs because she is cooking a gourmet dinner for George and Des as a surprise(!) Eileen busies herself cleaning up No.30, but stops short when she finds a book called "The Sacred Sex". She heads off.
Miss Drew's place
Max has fixed Miss Drew's water pipes and she is very pleased. She has finished Max's remark and he has 55/100. She says she's marked Max hard to teach him a lesson about doing Danny's homework in the future. When Max is leaving, Miss Drew (Kate) tells him that if the pipes haven't banged before the weekend, she will make him a fantastique French meal. Max is chuffed.
KATE: If and when your plumbing works.
MAX: You know...in a strange sort of way, I'm hoping it won't...
KATE: So am I.
MAX: See you.
KATE: Au revoir.
Max goes off with a smile on his face.
Eileen is putting the finishing touches to her meal.
Des and George are still poring over their work. Sarah comes up and asks Des what the problem is. Des says that half the deposits haven't shown off on the Head Office print out. Sarah says maybe the backup has been disconnected. Des and George realise that is indeed what has happened. They sit down for a long night of work.
Eileen is sitting alone at the dinner table.
Des is exhausted - his brain won't function anymore. They decide to get a takeaway.
There's a knock at the door and Eileen answers it. It's Max. He's looking for Des to chat about his account. Eileen is in a temper about Des and George being missing.
Eileen drags Max in and says that she wants to apologise for the dreadful things she said to Max about his wife. Max tells her to forget it - he's no longer upset. Just then, Max smells the dinner and a look of longing comes over his face. Eileen takes Max through the menu and his mouth starts to water.
MAX: You know Eileen, it's a shame you've got noone to appreciate your finer points.
EILEEN: Mr Ramsay. Would you care to join me if you have nothing better to do.
MAX: Can't think of a flaming thing!
They sit down to eat. Max is chuffed! (What a good day he is having!)
Shane and Danny are fed up that Max hasn't come home to cook dinner tonight. Danny says he's sick of being on a permanent diet and goes to rustle something up.
Max is enjoying his dinner. They chat about divorce and Max says that the boys don't seem to understand. Max says that Danny is having trouble understanding why Max can't cook as well as Maria.
Max says that George doesn't strike him as the kind of guy who would stand Eileen up. Eileen explains that it was a surprise dinner.
Des and George have finished and shake hands on a good job. They decide to go for an icecream on the way home.
Ramsays, the following morning
Danny is starving.
DANNY: I tell you, Shane. If Dad doesn't put something in the fridge soon, I'm going to faint!
He claims he is suffering from malnutrition.
Just then, Eileen comes round with a picnic basket.
EILEEN: I'm your new housekeeper!
