As Clive is about to walk away he shouts to Alex that the world would be a better place without him. He walks away. Alex pleads with him not to leave him.
Clive thinks for a minute, then despite himself gets a length of rope out of his boot.
The Coffee Shop
Des is worn out after filling in for Daphne. Eileen comes out to talk to him, but Des sends her back to the kitchen(!)
Charlene, Scott and Mike are just off home. Charlene says she's got a plan for Jane - a few days and they won't recognise her.
Des relents and says that Eileen can come out for five minutes!
Eileen sniffs some salmon and says she'll put it in a salmon mousse. Mike says that Daphne was going to throw the salmon out but Eileen says it's perfectly OK.
Outside the Coffee Shop
Kate is making another puppet for Vicky. Clive wonders if she's over what happened. Clive says he wonders if Alex Carter knew what he was doing when he threatened Vicky.
Kate tells Clive she can see there's something on his mind. Clive picks up the puppets. Clive admits through the puppets that he saw Alex and chased him to a quarry. He says he had to power to turn and walk away forever, but instead he hauled him to safety, drove him to hospital and called the police. But Clive just feels numb, like he betrayed Graham. He loves his family, but doesn't think he's done any of them justice.
Clive is still feeling down, but Kate says that Graham would be proud of his actions with Alex. She reminds him that he was the one who helped Vicky.
Clive tells Vicky that they've caught Alex. She hugs him tightly and gives her the new puppet. It's called Socrates, meaning very wise - just like Kate.
The Coffee Shop
Mrs Mangel comes in to buy a quiche, but they're sold out. Eileen comes out with some salmon mousse, giving one to Des. Eileen tells Mrs Mangel that she thinks Daphne is pregnant(!) Mrs Mangel asks for three more so she can have them for her dinner tonight.
In the kitchen, Eileen gives some of the salmon mousse to the cat.
Charlene comes in to find the house deserted. Madge comes out telling her that Susan and Sam are both asleep. She tells Madge that Mike got the highest mark for the maths test because Jane let him win on purpose. Madge says it's silly to do badly on purpose. Charlene tells Madge that she only got 53.5% for the test, but Charlene says that at least if she's dumb, she won't put guys off(!)
Helen shows Jane a sparkly blue dress and she goes to try it on.
Lucy opens the door to Mrs Mangel who is looking for Jane. Jane comes out wearing the dress and Mrs Mangel tells her not to waste Helen's time - you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Jane translates for Lucy - "When you're as ugly as me, you might as well put a paper bag over your head and be done with it." She goes to change, upset. Helen glowers at Mrs Mangel.
It's raining!!!!!!!!! Jane meet Scott, Charlene and Mike on the street. Mrs Mangel is just off to her lollipop lady's job but says she's got a bit of a stomachache. Scott tells Jane that he hopes she's going to come to the dance with him and Charlene. Charlene is impressed with Scott's compassion.
Helen is sewing the dress for Jane and Madge hopes everything will go well for her. Madge offers to help sew the dress at lunchtime.
The Coffee Shop
Mike and Des are holding the fort and Eileen is in the kitchen. She keeps trying to force the salmon mousse on customers.
Mrs Mangel comes in for a glass of iced water - she's feeling quite off colour. Apparently she liked the mousse, but Jane and Len wouldn't touch it.
Madge and Helen are working on the dress when Charlene and Jane come in. Charlene says she's going to buy her dress from the op shop for $10! Charlene shows Jane a magazine of hairstyles.
The Coffee Shop
Eileen serves the salmon mousse to Madge and Helen. She is delighted that they like it. Des is fed up of Eileen forcing the mousse on the customers!
Helen asks Jane to pop over tonight to try on the newly-altered dress.
Scott, Charlene and Mike sit at a table.
MIKE: Here she comes, everyone order salmon mousse or we'll never hear the end of it!
Eileen takes their order and they all order salmon mousse, apart from Charlene who orders a salad sandwich. She says she doesn't like fish.
Eileen stalks off to the kitchen.
Clive, Kate and Vicky have been visiting Graham who is feeling much better. Vicky says she'll miss Clive and Lucy when they go back to the country. Kate starts haranguing Clive about taking in Susan and Sam again. He says he's quite pleased to be back in medicine again.
The back of the Coffee Shop
Eileen, Des and Mike find the cat that Eileen has been feeding dead in a bin bag. Eileen says at least he had a last decent meal with the salmon mousse. Des and Mike do the maths - Mrs Mangel is sick as well. Eileen says it couldn't possibly be her mousse, but Des says it's the only explanation.
DES: We sold twenty-six salmon mousses today. And we've got one extremely dead cat.
