Sally wants to leave and Tony tells her that will muck things up as Jane wanted it to be a foursome. Sally asks if it has occurred to him that Jane might be upset as she works with Gail and Daphne is a close friend. Tony says that's all the more reason for them to have a good night.
Bouncer is sitting on the sofa and Mrs Mangel acts surprised to find him there. She tells Jane he must be looking for Mike, as that's what happened last time he was away.

Mrs Mangel is having tea with Eileen. Des emerges from his room and Mrs Mangel tells him the street is thinking of him. Mrs Mangel tells him she will take care of Bouncer whilst things are so strained. She says she'll keep him in the backyard so Harold's allergies aren't affected. Des is very grateful and a tad surprised.
Jane tells Tony she can't go out with him. He pushes her to join him and she agrees to get some take out with him. Harold watches as they leave and asks himself what Jane is thinking. He relays his fears to Mrs Mangel who tells him Jane is not the type of girl to play around. They agree Jane's vulnerability over the car accident may affect her reasoning. Mrs Mangel tells Harold she has agreed to look after Bouncer but promises he will be limited to the backyard.
Jane arrives and asks where Sally is. Tony tells her she has just popped out for a while. Jane says she feels uncomfortable about being there with just the two of them. Sally arrives and Jane says they have been waiting for her, Sally asks why as she has already told Tony she won't be joining them. Jane wises up and pours the Chinese take out over Tony.

Tony sits alone and hears Sally's words over and over again in his head.

Des leaves for the hospital and Eileen tells him she loves him. As he opens the door Jim and Beverly are waiting to be let in. Beverly tells him the news isn't good; Daphne is in a coma.
