Brad drops in to see Beth and Mark tells him he thinks Brad is jealous of Wayne spending time with Beth. He suggests Brad finds a girl at the pub.

Debbie and Rick are starting early as Rick wants Debbie to make fifty shepherd's pies!
Just then, a customer comes in and orders a coffee. Debbie puts some salt in the saucepan, and when she's out of the room, Rick inadvertantly puts salt in the saucepan too. Oh dear, looks over- salted.

Lou is sitting at a table and apparently smelling bad as some of the other customers are recoiling from him(!) Helen comes in and Rick suggests she orders the shepherds pie. He also serves Mark a portion. He is impressed with the look of the pie, but when he tastes it he almost spits it out. He advises Rick to throw out the whole batch. Helen, also, makes a sharp exit!

Lou and Lauren are telling each other about their first day at the job swap.
LOU: Let me see. I have been kicked, bitten and slobbered on. I smell like something that should be buried. I have a bale of hay sticking out of each ear, and every bone in my body's crying out for mercy. Apart from that, I'm quite fine!
LAUREN: Oh, you'll live. You've got til 4am tomorrow morning to get over it!
LOU: Don't remind me. I'm going to soak my bones in a tub. With any luck, I'll drown.
