Jane and Mike are kissing when Mrs Mangel comes outside and tells them to stop their ‘disgraceful behaviour'. Mrs Mangel says it's no wonder David felt her couldn't stay in the house with this kind of behaviour going on. She's not sure Henry is the best candidate for a housemate but comments that at least Henry doesn't have a criminal bond! She tells Jane to think carefully about the damage she is doing to her reputation.
David is getting ready for lunch. Henry tells him not to overdress, as Paul and Gail will probably be dressed casually. David tells Henry that he has no luck with relationships.

Gail says that's fine and says they have plenty of salad for him to eat. David is interested in their business careers and tells them he is a businessman himself, he works in a factory that makes ties! He talks them through the hardship of choosing patterns for various ties.
David: It's a business you can really get tied up in….that was a joke actually….tied up!
Des is making some food for Jamie. Mike says that he has already given him bananas for breakfast and said they shouldn't give Jamie too many dairy products. He gives Des some steamed vegetables that he has prepared in the fridge. Des tells him if he keeps this up Jamie will wonder how many fathers he has.
Paul and Gails
Paul, Gail and David are eating lunch. David explains to them some more about ties and how the length of someone's tie tells you a lot about their personality. Jane arrives and asks to speak to David. She tells him she hopes he didn't move out of the house because of her. She wonders if it's Mike and he says it's nothing to do with him, he just wanted to get to know Henry better.
Des has had trouble getting Jamie to sleep. Mike says he should have taken him for a walk as that always makes him tired. Des tells Mike that they should draw up a list to dictate who does what. Des gives himself all the jobs with Jamie much to Mike's annoyance.
Jane, Mrs Mangel and David are having afternoon tea. David is telling them stories from his university days, much to the delight of Mrs Mangel. Whilst Jane is outside, Mrs Mangel and David talk about Mike. Mrs Mangel tells him Jane's involvement with Mike worries her after he has had such troubles with the law. Mrs Mangel doesn't understand why David is spending time trying to get to know Henry. She says he is a layabout, just like his mother. David is shocked to hear such things as he thought Madge was quite nice. Mrs Mangel tells him that Madge led Harold a merry dance before they finally married.
David arrives home and Henry is laid up on the couch. David starts clearing up around him and tells him he has had a lovely afternoon. He thinks Jane likes him after she told him she admires him. David says it's his duty to save Jane from herself.
Mike asks if he can take Jamie for a walk. Des apologises and says he was jealous because Mike and Jamie were getting on so well. Mike says Des has every right to want to spend time with Jamie but Des says they are all one family.
David marches up to the Clarke house and meets Mike as he is coming down the path. He tells him he doesn't believe he deserves Jane; he is in love with her and intends to do everything in his power to win her.
