At the Robinsons:
Helen apologises for interfering. Paul walks in on the two of them and Gail seems uncomfortable. Helen praises Paul for helping Henry that day and asks him and Gail to stay for dinner. Paul says he was thinking of taking Gail out for a nice romantic candlelit dinner, but she declines and would rather have dinner with the family. Paul looks confused as Helen and Gail leave the room.
At the Ramsays:
Madge comes home from work to Charlene filling her in on all the details of the mediation. She is unable to listen properly as she's breaking in new shoes and has sore feet. She goes out to change and Charlene decides to chat to Scott instead. He is trying to study at the table and barely listens to her, answering in grunts. She asks if people get more selfish as they get older - then tells him some people are so selfish they ignore people, rather be reading a book… he replies that it sounds pretty good to him. Charlene slams his book shut and he laughs, telling her he caught every single thing she said. She brings the conversation round to the park that day and how he didn't seem to be doing much studying then. He answers that relaxing is part of studying (Oh yeah?). She huffs that he and Jane were relaxing:
SCOTT: You know, you were right about Jane
CHARLENE: I was?
SCOTT: I never really paid that much attention to her before. You kept telling me how much fun she was
CHARLENE: I did?
SCOTT: Yeah, you have to spend time with that girl to really appreciate her
CHARLENE: I suppose I told you how pretty she was? Or did you figure that out for yourself?
SCOTT: You know, it's incredible isn't it - how you can know someone for so many years and not even realise how intelligent and gorgeous they really are (Steady on Scott!)
Charlene starts to storm out but Scott grabs her arm and says he thought she wanted to talk to him? Doesn't she trust him? She hits his arm and tells him not in a million years! He jokes that she's not much of a wife if there's no trust and she replies that he should get Jane to do his socks then. Perhaps realising he's gone too far with his teasing he reassures her that even though Jane is terrific, nobody comes close to her. Although still slightly wary she rewards him with a cuddle and a kiss, only to be interrupted by Madge. Feeling chirpier Madge informs them both that she might go and visit Harold later - she could do with some unbridled passion herself. In shock, Scott reminds her that Harold isn't talking to her. Madge knows that and thinks it is up to her to sort things out.
At the Clarkes:
Harold is snoring his head off on the couch whilst Mike tries to study. Madge arrives and Mike asks her to come in, please! She wakes Harold up and he is delighted to see her, until he wakes up properly. Mike uses the opportunity to go out, leaving Harold in Madge's capable hands (to Harold's many protests). Madge apologises profusely for being responsible for Harold's accident and asks if things can't go back to the way they were. Pompous Harold says he has enough Christian charity to forgive her, and perhaps, one day, they can be friends again. He is sure she will understand that their relationship will never be more than that again though. Madge's face clearly shows that she doesn't understand.
At Paul and Gails:
Gail praises the gourmet casserole Helen made for tea (Gourmet? Casserole? Surely a contradiction in terms!) Paul picks the petals off a flower reciting “She loves me, she loves me not”. Gail says she knew he'd overheard and asks what else she was supposed to say to Helen. Paul answers that he thought she'd said it very well. He wants to talk about things, until Gail tells him Helen saw her kissing Glen. He tells her off for being indiscreet then quietly asks if she has something going with her friend Biggles. Gail avoids the question by reminding him they are only married on paper. She can't understand why they are arguing about it and goes off to bed, leaving Paul to stare longingly after her.
At the Clarkes:
Harold is trying to drink a cup of tea through a straw, unsuccessfully. Mike tells him they will laugh about this in 10 years time. Harold is embarrassed that he has to watch Mike doing his ironing (boxers included!) and says he is surprised that Des and Daphne have left him to cope on his own. Mike says they are having dinner at Daphne's fathers, trying to patch things up. It's good that adults can do that sort of thing… (hint, hint) Harold gets agitated and informs Mike that his relationship with Madge is nothing to do with him and that it may be Christian to forgive but it is criminal to forget - “once bitten, twice shy.”
Des and Daphne return home and Daphne says she will be going visiting again tomorrow. She really wants to work things out with her father now - “If you can't forgive and forget then the only thing stopping you is your own stupid pride.” Cue meaningful look from Mike to Harold.
At the Ramsays:
Charlene and Scott are looking stunning in matching, towelling dressing gowns. Charlene is upset that she doesn't see enough of Scott now he is studying all the time. He promises that better times are coming and goes off to bed. Charlene complains to Madge that she picked the wrong person to help Scott. Madge says she just made 3 statements - “You don't trust your best friend, you don't trust your husband and you've got no faith in your marriage.” She warns that things will be much worse once Scott has a career - the women he works with won't be her friends. Charlene needs to learn to trust him. Charlene hugs her and says for once she agrees with her. Madge laughs and asks if she can have that in writing? Charlene says no.
At Daphne's fathers:
Alan grumpily asks Daphne what she's doing back there, then tells her she shouldn't call her baby Jamie, he needs a nice sensible name like Jim. He then reveals he's sacked his carer as he didn't do things the way he wanted them done. Daphne is unimpressed and asks what happens now? Good carers are hard to come by. She asks him to go inside but he says he likes it outside - she tells him about how claustrophobic she felt after Jamie was born and he is pleased they have something in common at last. Ice slightly melted, Daphne goes inside to make them a pot of tea.
At the coffee shop:
Gail sees Beverly and asks why she had talked to Helen about her marriage to Paul. She feels Beverly should have kept things private as she'd taken an oath. Slightly put out Beverly says if she'd come to her as a doctor of course it would have been confidential, but she didn't. Beverly told Helen because she thought she'd have been able to help. Gail apologises and says it's her own fault.
At Daphne's father's:
Daphne brings the tea out and sees her father collapsed at the table. She drops the tray and runs to him.
At the coffee shop:
Charlene asks Mike if she can eat her home made sandwiches inside. He jokes that he might have to charge her customer space. She snaps that she'll buy something then and sits down in a mood. Paul comes in and gets a further blast from her - she is upset that he hasn't hired a mechanic yet. Paul warns her that she is staff and should behave accordingly. He tells her he interviewing people but hasn't found anyone yet - then pays for her milkshake to try and make her feel better. It doesn't. She is scared she is going to lose her job.
At the bank:
Des is on the phone to Daphne. He says he'll meet her at the hospital. Daphne is worried her father will die.
At the Robinsons:
Madge brings Helen a plate of pies to thank her for helping Henry. Helen asks her why she isn't baking for Harold. Madge tells her Harold said “I forgive you, get lost” yesterday. Helen says his pride can rise to considerable heights at times but he'll come back to earth eventually. Beverly comes to the door and tells Helen she might have been wrong about Paul and Gail, and that she shouldn't really have said anything. Helen says she's pleased she did - she was a bit worried too but isn't anymore - their marriage is just fine.
At the Clarkes:
Scott is visiting Harold. Harold says things are better now he's in the company of men - “God help the poor fellow who's totally at the mercy of women eh?” Scott responds that it depends on the women! He opens the door to Paul who's come to talk business with Harold. Harold tells him he knows he shouldn't have taken the car when it wasn't ready and that it's his fault. Paul says the garage is going to pick up the bill. When Harold questions why he says they're neighbours. Harold is astonished (2 good deeds from Paul in 2 days?) Harold asks Scott if he'll ask Madge to pop over later - if it isn't too inconvenient.
At Daphne's fathers:
We learn that Daphne's father will be coming out of hospital tomorrow. Daphne doesn't want him to come home to an empty house and is fretting that she couldn't comfort him in hospital because she didn't know him. She thinks the only way to fix this will be for her to move in with her father for a little while - Des will have to manage without her.
