Henry climbs out of the pool and squares up to Tony. Charlene tries to get in on the action like a yappy dog but Scott holds her back. Harold hears the commotion and comes outside to try and stop the fight but Henry throws a punch at Tony, who is taking up a karate kid stance. Tony karate chops Henry's arm and Sally tells him (Henry) to grow up. Henry is not put off and carries on the fight until Scott stops them. Tony apologises and says he's new and doesn't want to start off on a bad foot but Henry's having none of it.
At Jim's office:
Paul is dozing in a chair when Jim wakes him up by waving a smelly tuna and onion sandwich under his nose. Paul tells him this isn't what he meant when he hoped they could have lunch together, then ruins Jim's appetite by revealing he and Gail have split up.
In Paul and Gail's office:
Jane is sitting on Gail's desk while Gail sorts out her flight details back to New York. Jane feels strange that a temp (Melanie) is now doing her job but not as strange as she'll feel going back to New York. She's pleased that at least this time she can go with a clear conscience. They are interrupted by Glen Matheson at the door who wants to take Gail out for lunch - if her slave driver of a husband will let her. She tells him she's a free agent and would love to go. He invites Jane along too who willingly agrees.
At the garage:
Charlene is still huffy with Tony and he asks why she is so upset about him pushing that guy into the pool. She tells him "that guy" is her brother - she thought he knew everything about her? He admits he only knows what Greg told him, he's a friend. She is surprised - she thought Greg had better taste. He tells her he wants to be friends with everyone, even her brother. But, whether she likes it or not he's her boss so he expects some co-operation. She says she'll make every effort as far as her work's concerned but he shouldn't expect her to like him (talking yourself out of a job pretty quickly here mate.....)
At the coffee shop:
Jane and Glen are eagerly talking about New York while Gail stares into her dinner plate. They notice and she says she just has things on her mind. Glen and Jane agree to meet up when he's in New York and it's obvious Glen is pretty taken with her. Harold comes over and clearly shows his disapproval when Jane says she's off to the beach to top up her tan and Glen asks if he can tag along. He thinks her Nan would have objections too but Glen is too excited to be spending a lazy afternoon in the sun with a pretty girl for them to take much notice.
At the Ramsays:
Henry is down in the dumps because Sally laughed at him earlier. She tells him she couldn't help it, it was funny. She sweet talks him into laughing again and he admits that he really missed her while she was away - he's never felt this serious about a girl before. Unfortunately Sally doesn't feel the same way. She has a great time with him but doesn't expect anything to come of it, he isn't responsible enough for her liking. Plus she is too busy with her father at the moment. Henry suggests maybe they could get more serious when that's all sorted but she doesn't want that either - she doesn't want him to change who he is. Reluctantly (very reluctantly) Henry agrees that he won't change - although he knows this also means she's letting him down gently.
At the coffee shop:
Gail is still away with the fairies. Beverly comes in to order a quiche for her dinner because she doesn't have time to cook. Harold asks about her new partner and she says hopefully working with a man will bring back some of her old patients. She spots Gail and sits down to have a chat. Gail - "don't offer me a penny for my thoughts, they're not worth it." Beverly tells her she's heard about her and Paul and is very sorry. She offers her a shoulder to cry on and in return tries to palm off some of her own woes - seems things aren't all rosy between Dr Bev and Steven, although it's nothing Beverly can't handle.
In the office:
Sally asks Paul if the offer of a room at Lassiters is still available. He agrees and she goes off to get her bags from Henry's car, giving him a kiss on the cheek as she goes. Henry is thrilled and pats his heart, declaring to Paul and Gail "ain't love grand!" The looks on their faces clearly say otherwise!
At the Ramsays:
Charlene is cooking a casserole for Lucy and Jim so Helen doesn't have to bother cooking. I wouldn't like to eat it myself as it seems to consist of potatoes, potatoes and, for extra flavour, some potatoes. Jim comes in and breaks the news about Paul and Gail separating to them. They are all shocked - they always seemed so happy together. Jim tells Lucy he'll take her to the coffee shop so they can chat without worrying Helen - who isn't to be told. Charlene suggests to Scott that they stick their noses in and have a chat to Paul and Gail - they might be able to make them see sense. Scott agrees, somewhat half heartedly.
At the office:
Paul is delighted at his baby brother and his teenage bride playing Oprah and asks why they both assume it's his fault? Scott points out that he and Charlene would have got back together much sooner if they'd talked things through (Oh yeah? I seem to remember them arguing every time they talked?) but Paul says he wasn't the one who called things off, they're talking to the wrong guy.
At the coffee shop:
Lucy is confused - why don't people stay together any more? Jim re-assures her that Scott and Charlene worked things out, hopefully Paul and Gail will too. Not enough for Lucy - what about him and Beverly? He says that's different - he and Beverly aren't married. Lucy wishes they were. Oh look, here she is! Come to pick up her quiche (Ah so that was the reason for her ordering it earlier). She comes over to see how Lucy got on back at school and Jim asks if they can have a word - about Helen. He's worried about how tired she is and Beverly agrees to go and see her now.
At Mrs Mangel's:
Jane and Glen return from the beach. Glen is concerned about Mrs Mangel being home - he's heard she's an old dragon. He asks Jane if Gail is okay - he hates to see her unhappy. Jane says it's none of their business (something Scott and Charlene could do with taking a bit of notice of really) but can see Glen really cares about her. Glen admits he does and says he should have done more about it, but Jeremy Lord came along and swept her off her feet, then Paul. Still, at least there's Jane...
At Paul and Gail's:
Oprah and Tricia (aka Scott and Charlene) have called round to see Gail to try and make her see sense. Scott sticks up for his big brother and says he knows how hard Paul can be to live with but he's not such a bad bloke. Gail stops them and says there are things about their situation that they don't understand, and she isn't prepared to discuss it with them. Undeterred Scott and Charlene push on forcing Gail to tell them that with Paul it's business first, second and last. The things they see as tokens of love are actually rewards for clinching business deals. Scott says he didn't ask her to marry him because of business (oh how little you know Scotttie!) and Gail comes close to spilling out the truth, but instead tells them they don't know a damn thing about her marriage. She gets upset and yells at Charlene that they're a couple of romantic kids who thinks everyone sees the world the same way they do, but they don't. In tears she tells them to get off her back and leave her alone. Charlene finally gets the message and they leave. Poor Gail hugs the post by the front door and has a proper cry.
