- Sarah sees the result of Danny's aptitude test on the table at Des's house - he's come top.
- Julie tells Des that she wants to marry Phil.
- Danny tells Scott that he's going to get a job at the Pacific Bank.
- Jim is concerned to hear that Lucy has gone off with an unknown woman.
- Lucy innocently plays Terry's tape. On the tape, Charles tells Terry that someone called Robert shot two men.
Lucy is puzzled by the contents of the tape. She takes it out of the machine and replaces it in the tape case.
Barbara reports to Charles that the tape is either on Terry's person or at the Robinsons. Charles says that Terry will just have to tell them where it is.
Lucy tries to get Scott to listen to the tape, but he doesn't want to - he's too busy cooking the barbecue. Jim comes in and hugs Lucy, telling her he's been out looking for her. She tries to get him to listen to the tape, but he just tells her to go and wash her hands for lunch.
Garden of the Robinsons
Lucy is frustrated and pours out the story of the tape to Basil. Scott calls her to help with the barbecue and she runs off, leaving the tape on the grass.
Jim, Julie, Scott and Lucy are cleaning up after the barbecue.
JULIE: I hope all those dishes will be done by the time I get back!
Jim, Lucy and Scott silently salute(!)
Julie comes to see Paul and Terry. She tells him that she's giving up her job to look after Debbie and Michael. Paul is very shocked, and says that Julie is giving her life away. But Julie says it's what she wants. She's not sure how to tell Jim.
Julie approaches Jim in the living room.
JIM: I was not interfering this morning! I like the man.
JULIE: That's good, Dad. Because I've decided I'm going to move in with Philip and the children. I mean...that way we can all be together as a family. And the children can go to their school.
Jim takes this in.
JIM: You are the finest daughter I ever could have wished for. Just be happy, darling. Be happy.
JULIE: I will be.
JIM: I'm going to miss you to.
You're not losing me, Dad. You're gaining a whole family.
Julie has brought Michael and Debbie to see Philip. She tells him that she's given up her job to move in with him and the children.
PHILIP: Are you sure that's what you want to do? What about your family?
JULIE: I told Dad and he understands.
PHILIP: Oh, Julie.
They hug tightly.
JULIE: I can look after the children much better in your house. Then we can be together when you leave hospital.
PHILIP: I'm so lucky to have found you.
JULIE: Oh, no, I'm the luckier one.
They hug again.
Douglas and Helen are booking into a guesthouse for the night. Helen goes to ring the family and Douglas says she should leave them on their own for a bit - it'll do them good.
George and Eileen have been having a meal.
GEORGE: What was that pice that you put in the curry?
They sit down to relax in the living room. George tells Eileen that his time at the bank is almost up - he'll be moving on soon. But she doesn't want to listen.
Jim, Paul, Terry, Scott and Lucy have been watching television. Terry goes to put Lucy to bed.
Charles rings No.30 just as Terry and Paul come in. Terry answers it.
CHARLES: I can't hurt you Terry, much as I'd like to. But unless I get that tape in 24 hours someone very close to you WILL be hurt.
Terry puts down the phone saying it was a wrong number. She hugs Paul tightly.
Guesthouse, the following morning
Helen sits down to breakfast, but Douglas is nowhere to be seen. She sits down to wait for him.
Terry is making Paul a special breakfast and generally fawning over him. She tells Paul how much she likes looking after him.
The guesthouse restaurant is nearly empty now, and Helen is still waiting for Douglas. The receptionist comes over and says that she was surprised to see Douglas driving off this morning. Helen is very shocked to hear this. But just then, Douglas comes in, saying he's been to buy some Cornish pasties.
A picnic table
Helen and Douglas are eating their pasties. Helen confesses that when she thought Douglas had gone, she realised how much he meant to her. She never thought she'd find anyone else after Bill died.
Terry and Paul are hanging out. The phone rings and Paul answers it - he has to go in to work after all.
Douglas is just dropping Helen off. Eileen comes over and immediately starts sticky-beaking.
EILEEN: So, you spent the weekend together, you and Mr Blake?
HELEN: Yes. Mr Blake and I spent the weekend together.
EILEEN: I see.
HELEN: No, you don't. I don't think you see anything clearly lately, Eileen. You're so full of self-righteous opinions that your mind is completely closed off to anything else! Your opinions of my behaviour don't make any difference to my life, nor do they change anything.
EILEEN: I'm entitled to my view, Helen...
HELEN: Well, you have no right to dump it on me!
Chastened, Eileen stomps off.
Jim is tidying up when Helen and Douglas arrive. He quickly hides the dirty coffee cups(!) Helen enthuses about what a good time they had although she's worried how the fmaily coped without her.
JIM: Oh, it was no problem at all.
HELEN: I'm glad. I'm so glad because I might not be around here much longer.
