Madge arrives and tells them that Paul and Gail have given them the Lassiters function room for the reception. Charlene is thrilled but realises Paul doesn't know just how many guests are expected.
Jim shuns Lucy to do his paperwork. Helen tells him the bills will be around forever but at the rate he's going his family won't be. She tells him he is taking his frustrations out on everyone and says he needs to accept Beverly's help.
