Skinner tells Todd that he'll have to do "a job" with him.
Skinner explains that he needs cash, not just food, and to get cash, Todd will have to help him. He's small enough to crawl in through windows of houses and stuff. Todd is very uneasy at this but Skinner reckons that everyone has insurance, so they're not hurting anyone(!) Either Todd does it or he goes home. Todd insists that he can't go home. Skinner advises him to call his family anyway, just so they know he hasn't been murdered. Todd allows that he could ring Katie.
SKINNER: After that, you can forget about your family. Because they don't exist when you're on the streets.
Des is stressed out with everything he has to do, though he's fed up with Harold checking up on Joe's every move. Malcolm and Des chat about Scoop the Pool - Malcolm is well into his revision.
Malcolm is still very down on Bronwyn but Des tells him to give her a chance. Just then, Bronwyn arrives with some pamphlets from the baby health centre and Des is impressed that Bronwyn is working hard for him.
Harold is moaning that Madge has spent too much at the shops, but he's quite excited about the ballroom dancing - apparently he and Madge used to go dancing years ago. Harold reckons he hasn't lost his touch and takes Madge up on her suggestion that he proves it to her by dancing a samba across the living room!
There's a knock at the door, and it's Des. Harold has to head off to the Coffee Shop, still dancing a bit(!)
Katie answers the phone to Todd! She immediately begs him to come home but he says he isn't sure yet. He reckons he's sick of getting hassled.
Just then Beverly comes in and grabs the phone off Katie. Todd puts it down without saying another word.
Skinner has got some clothes for Todd as a disguise, because the police will have been given a description of his own clothes by Beverly.
Todd changes into a gigantic shirt(!) He agrees to do the job with Skinner, but Skinner says there's no hurry - Todd can just be his apprentice for a while!
Beverly and Helen are grilling Katie for background noises she might have heard during her conversation with Todd, but she can't throw a lot of light on the subject. Beverly is practically beside herself but Helen says there's no point getting upset for Katie's sake. She suggests that Katie goes to stay with Gail for a while.
BEVERLY: Oh, Helen. Where is he?
HELEN: Well, wherever he is, he's surviving!
BEVERLY: I know. But how?
Bronwyn is going through a colouring book with Jamie and Malcolm is doing nothing but criticising her. She gets up to cook dinner and Malcolm waxes lyrical about what a good cook Eileen was.
Harold is ranting about Joe's lack of receipts - he suspects foul play. Madge advises him to just leave things alone and try to calm down. She suggests some dance practice to do just that!
HAROLD: Do I have to?
MADGE: You do if you want to stay married!
Harold groans and puts a Waltz on. Their dancing isn't very successful with Harold immediately stepping on Madge's foot! But they eventually start getting the hang of it.
Malcolm is banging on about Bronwyn pushing Jamie too hard to achieve. Bronwyn rolls her eyes and says she's just following government guidelines. Malcolm starts banging on about pool safety again and Bronwyn tells him off, saying she feels guilty enough already.
MALCOLM: I'm surprised Des didn't fire you on the spot!
BRONWYN: Well, he didn't! You're not my boss, so lay off!
Des comes in in the middle of this and demands to know what's going on.
Malcolm insists that Bronwyn is incompetent and that is reinforced by her burning the Shepherd's Pie. Des tells Malcolm off for his behaviour and says he'd better keep the peace in future.
Helen is on the phone telling Nick to come home - he's out at the arcade looking for Skinner.
Beverly comes in from taking Katie over to Gail's. She says that Katie has stopped worrying now that she's heard from Todd. Beverly wishes she could be so relaxed about his situation.
Madge and Harold are ballroom dancing around the living room and having a great time. They sit down for a rest and talk about how much they love each other. Harold starts getting rather fruity (ew!)
Malcolm is still banging on about Bronwyn, but Des tells him that he can't afford to loose Bronwyn - good nannies don't grow on trees and Jamie likes her. Malcolm says he'll be civil to her, but Des says that's not good enough - Malcolm will have to go home for a while until things cool down. Malcolm is forced to admit that he hasn't told Des something - he had to sell his house.
MALCOLM: So, I'm afraid, for the time being, you're stuck with me.
