HARRY: A little bird told me that it's yours for the asking!
Jim is wondering where Lucy has got to - she's late home. Julie asks Jim if she can have a talk to him about her and Phil. She tells Jim that she doesn't want him interfering in her relationship with Phil. Jim is offended and insists that he wasn't interfering.
JULIE: Dad, I'm quite capable of making my own decisions.
Julie is chatting to Des about Jim. Des says he can see Jim's point - if he were in Jim's shoes, he'd want to make sure Phil was the right man, too.
JULIE: Yes, but he's not the one marrying him, Des, I am.
DES:(surprised) Are you?!
JULIE: Oh...no...that slipped out.
Julie gives Des her resignation and says that she means it this time. Des offers her a leave of absence, but Julie's mind is made up.
DES: Do you know what you're going to do?
JULIE: Yes. I'm going to move into Philip's and look after Debbie and Michael.

JULIE: I really love Philip and his children. I just want the best for them.
