Toby is playing darts but Joe confiscates them so Kerry doesn't get angry at holes in the wall. Kerry comes in with some books on home birth for him to read but he quickly changes the subject and leaves the room
Paul asks if Caroline is in. Paul thinks her date must be going well, but Chrissie (in a pair of very Harry Potter-esque glasses) asked her and she assured her it was business. Paul tells her that he heard Caroline on the phone and it definitely sounded like a date, while Chrissie thought she did dress up a bit for a simple business dinner but asks Paul if he knows who it is. He lies and says he has no idea, they will just have to wait and see.
Rosemary is talking to Helen about Tracy - she is taking her out of school a few days early. She feels very sorry for her as she has no mother and no relatives and now has to spend her holidays with complete strangers. Helen thinks she should make her feel especially at home, but ….already has a surprise for her - dinner at the restaurant, apparently it was her mother's favourite.
Jim and Caroline had a great date - neither of them is ready to tell everyone but they will go out another night this week.
Chrissie must have been more tired than she thought last night as she fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow. Caroline is evasive at the questions she is being asked.
Joe is trying to get Sky ready before he goes to work but she won't stay still. Toby wants him to watch him play darts - he's getting really good. Kerry tells him it'll have to wait until after school, he should feed Bouncer though but Toby hasn't seen him. Kerry reminds Joe how important it is that he reads the birthing books and he agrees.
Paul is getting snappy with Caroline so she snaps back that he's been treating everyone, especially her and Melanie, appallingly. He says he can't trust Melanie with PR yet and Caroline reminds him that that is probably why she's been avoiding him - he knows he won't trust her.
Jim is starving - he didn't have breakfast this morning as he rushed off so quickly and Helen didn't get a chance to ask him how it went. He replies with a brief fine and asks about Rosemary. Helen shares her concerns about taking an 11 year old to a fancy restaurant, it could be intimidating for both of them.
Rosemary and Tracy (who is wearing the most hideous dress) arrive at the restaurant. Tracy sounds terrified as she replies to Rosemary's questions. She would rather have a hamburger but Rosemary insists she eats something fancier.
The Coffee Shop
Chrissie thinks Paul could be jealous and Caroline reveals that it is Jim Robinson she is seeing. Like any self-respecting twin sister she wants to know everything.
CAROLINE: It kind of depends on a couple of things…
CHRISTINA: Like him still being married?!
CAROLINE: That's one of them, yes!
Helen makes Tracy feel a lot more at home - she suggests that she changes out of her nice clothes (!) into something more casual, and asks her some questions about the instrument she is playing. This only serves to upset Rosemary more - she couldn't coax a smile out of her in three hours, Helen only took three minutes!
Kerry returns with Bouncer in tow, he was down The Waterhole with Rosie. Kerry reminds Joe to read the books before Friday because Bev is coming round then to talk to them. She warns him she could get nasty if he puts it off one more time and Toby warns him to do as she says as well.
Paul is just about to leave when Jim comes to the door for Caroline which makes Paul enquire as to why. Jim tells him it is about the warehouse plans. Paul returns to his desk telling them he has a few things to do before he goes to the complex.
Tracy is off to play with her Wendy House. In a last-ditch attempt to connect with Rosemary she suggests Tracy take her teddy out and she'll come and play. Tracy tells her she is too old for a teddy bear so she doesn't have one any more.
Jim tries to shake Paul off by suggesting he and Caroline go to the Waterhole to give him some peace.
PAUL: What I could do with is both of you cutting out the act
JIM: What act?
PAUL: Don't give me that! I am no fool - don't you think I know what's going on?
