Rosie, Harold, Lou
Lou carried on with his plan to create a special menu to get the pub in the gourmet category. There was a lot of comedy around the 'posh' terms he wanted to use. While Max, Rosie and Harold were very unsure about the whole thing, they helped him out just for once. Rosie and Harold bought the expensive ingredients (Lou had to reimburse them) and cooked the food in The Coffee Shop.
Just as Harold was finishing off the 'agneau', the critic changed his mind and decided he wanted pigeon. They didn't have a pigeon, as Lou had added it to the menu for show without telling anyone, so there was another funny conversation as they wondered how and where to get one. Rosie then suggested getting one from Lanzini's and the meal was a great success.Lou wouldn't let the critic pay and he left, saying the pub would be in the Guide Book.When Lou went to clear the plate away he found a card making it clear it was a pay-back scam by Hank Ellis. harold thought it confirmed that no good would come from it and Lou seemed to accept it philosophically, even find it amusing.
Summer and Boyd
They made a 'dirty little secrets' call to Stuart, just when he was writing to Flick saying they had grown apart etc. Instead of worrying about it, he was puzzled and told Max, who twigged straight away. He went straight home to confront Summer and Boyd, disappointed that they'd done it again after promising not to. Because they'd got off lightly before and hadn't changed their behaviour, he decided to punish them by making them compile a list of all those they'd rung. They have to apologise and then do chores to make up for it.
Stuart made them wash the dishes and clean the bathroom, then, worse, clean up the back yard as Bob's diet had been upsetting his stomach again.
Michelle and Connor
They rang and asked Steph to bring them their passports. After much argument, Joe trusted Steph to take the passports, but not actually allow Michelle to have them. Joe went into detail about the fact that he will be in trouble also if he's judged to have been complicit in what Connor has done.
When Steph met them, Connor persuaded her, without Michelle's knowledge, to leave the passports with him. He promised he wouldn't take Michelle out of the country, so she reluctantly agreed.
