Cameron wants to go for it, but wants to know what they think because of Brad. Doug says Brad is on again off again, and Cameron is old enough to make up his own mind.
DOUG: Do you know what I've learned over the years.
PAM: Oh here we go.
DOUG: It's to not stick my nose in where it's not wanted. You'll have to work things out for yourself.
Cameron thanks them for their help and leaves. Pam wishes Doug hadn't been so encouraging to Cameron, she doesn't want to see Brad get hurt. Doug didn't think Brad was really serious, in which case it's up to him to do something about it.

Cameron is cleaning up when Doug arrives and thanks him for breakfast.
CAMERON: I know you don't want to get involved but what do you reckon about the sensitive new man of the 90s approach?
DOUG: You mean like telling her you cry at sad movies?
CAMERON: Yeah, and that I'm aware of women's issues and am after a better deal for women, that sort of thing?
DOUG: Yeah could work. Maybe that's what Brad was doing with those flowers earlier?
CAMERON: He wasn't, when?
CAMERON: Very funny.
DOUG: Of course in my day we used to club them over the head and drag them back to our cave.
Jill arrives and thanks them for their help last night. Doug says Jill's mother in law is something else, and Cameron encourages Jill to keep fighting her. Jill doesn't think he can put Ross through that, but Doug doesn't want that woman to poison Ross's mind against her. She wishes she could show Ross the letter that his father sent her but it would hurt him too much. She explains when Philip walked out on them she wrote to him and pleaded for him to come back but he wrote back saying he didn't want a bar of her or Ross. He also doubted he was the father because Ross is such a wimp according to him. Cameron says she should show the letter to Ross. Jill says she can't.
JILL: You know how he feels. Imagine what it would do to him.
CAMERON: You have an obligation to let the boy know the truth.
JILL: I have an obligation to love him and do what I think is best for him. No matter what he might say or do, I'm still his mother.

Lucy wishes Brad could see her in her costume, she hates hurting both Brad and Cameron. Lucy thinks she should maybe sort it out, but Jim says that can wait to later, she should go and have a good time. The limo arrives, but they can't see Cameron. Perhaps he doesn't want to give away his costume.
Jim walks Lucy to the limo, he opens and says hi to Cameron inside, laughing at his Mad Monk costume with the hood covering his head. Lucy gets in the limo as it drives off. The monk has cards which he shows Lucy. ‘I'm a Trappist monk. I've taken a vow of silence.'
Jim meanwhile is taking out the rubbish, when Cameron arrives in a Roman costume. He says there was a mix-up with Home James and someone got the last limousine, he'll have to take Lucy in a cab. Jim tells her she's left. Someone turned up in a limousine and they both assumed it was him.
Todd tells Gaby that he doesn't know how to help Phoebe if she won't let them. Gaby guesses it could be her father's birthday, Todd agrees that if it the first one since his death it will be quite upsetting. Todd leaves to talk to Phoebe again. Pam and Doug arrive venting about this situation with Jill, explaining about Jill refusing to show the letter to Ross from his father. Gaby wonders why people lie like that, but Pam says Jill's mother in law thinks she's doing what is best for Ross. Doug looks outside and says Brad's wetsuit has gone. Pam only hung it up a few minutes ago, Doug says some mongrel must have pinched it.
On the road
