Daphne catches Sue putting a nasty note under Mrs Mangel's door.
Sue tries to say it was Daphne who put the letter under the door! Daphne tells Sue that they're going to her house to sort things out and invites Mrs Mangel along too.
The Coffee Shop
Jane insists that Mrs Mangel can't stop her from seeing Mike, but Charlene warns her to be careful as Mrs Mangel might send Jane to her other grandmother in the country.
The phone goes and it's Daphne calling Mike home to chat about the letters.
Dan and Edna keep changing the channel on the radio to annoy each other! Madge comes in and tells them off for acting like children. Edna starts talking about how wonderful Clive is, much to Dan's disgust. Edna says that she'd have left Dan years ago if it hadn't been for the children. She says she'll phone her solicitor in the morning to get a divorce!
Daphne, Des, Mrs Mangel, Mike and Sue are gathered to talk about the letters. Daphne shows Des both letters so he can compare the typeface - it's the same. Sue admits that she wrote the letters and that she made the contents up - because Mike went out with Jane instead of her. She's crying and says her parents will kill her. Daphne says that Mike must decide Sue's punishment. Mike lets her off and Des makes Mrs Mangel apologise to Mike. But she says she had good reason to doubt Mike - and where there's smoke there's fire! Des, Daphne and Mike roll their eyes.
Later at the Clarkes
Mike is reading the letters again and trying to understand Sue's motivations - if she really did like Mike, why write the letters? He's worried about how he can get Mrs Mangel on side though. Des and Daphne can't think of anything!
Ruth has made the dinner for the family but they are waiting for Helen and Scott to come home.
Eventually Helen comes in. She says something's missing - mess and chaos! Jim says that Ruth has done some housework. Jim tells Ruth to stop working so hard, but she says that she doesn't mind - she likes helping.
Charlene is upset that Dan and Edna are going to divorce. She tells Dan she's fed up of seeing people she cares about split up - once some things are broken, they can't be fixed. She wants Dan to apologise to Edna but he says he won't. Eventually he says if Edna apologises, he will too.
Edna comes in and informs Dan that she's seen her solicitor and the divorce will be no problem at all. Dan says, "Good!"
Mrs Mangel still won't admit that she was in the wrong where Mike was concerned. Jane says that she won't stop seeing Mike but Mrs Mangel says Jane can go to her other grandmother in the country.
Mike comes to talk to Mrs Mangel. He apologises for the way he spoke to her before, but she won't accept his apology. Mrs Mangel sends Jane to her room, but Jane won't go. She says she's done everything Mrs Mangel has asked her from Day 1, but if she can't choose her own friends, she's leaving. She says she'll have her bags packed in ten minutes - she's leaving. Mrs Mangel is flabbergasted!
Ramsays, the following morning
Dan is in a bad mood and telling Charlene that his schooldays were much harder than hers(!) Madge says that Dan didn't use to go to school much - he was always down at the pool hall(!)
Edna comes in with her court on, saying she's off to see the solicitor in person. She looks at Dan as if she expects him to say something, but he doesn't, so Edna leaves.
Mrs Mangel's, the following morning
Mike is trying to talk Mrs Mangel around about the letters in a very calm voice. He says he doesn't want to split Mrs Mangel and Jane up. He says that he'll always respect Jane. Mrs Mangel says she doesn't have any choice but to let Mike and Jane see each other - Jane will leave otherwise. Mike and Jane are pleased.
Mike is doing the housework and Daphne tells him off - he should be studying. There a knock on the door and it's Jane - she's come to study with Mike.
Charlene has come to return some books to Jane, but she's not there. Mrs Mangel admits that Jane is around at Mike's place. Charlene says that it takes a special person to admit when they're wrong and that Jane is lucky to have a grandmother who respects her. Mrs Mangel is dumbstruck!
Charlene comes in with the milk and says she's put Mrs Mangel in her place(!)
Edna comes in crying.
EDNA: (to Dan) You devil!
Apparently she went to the Registry Office to get their marriage certificate and it didn't exist!
EDNA: He's had me living in sin for fifty years!
