Shane has come to practise diving and Daphne and Max are watching. He dives off the high board and Max approves of his technique.
Danny is watching the diving board thoughtfully and asks Scott if he ever sees accidents in dreams.
Shane is still diving and Max says he's doing better. Max tells Daphne that Shane will do well as long as he doesn't get mixed up with the wrong crowd(!)
Daphne mentions that she's off to see Des about the room and Max is appalled. Max shouts that he doesn't want a stripper living in his street - the street was named after his grandfather. Daphne laughs and politely bids Max goodbye.
Scott talks to a girl called Kim and tells her that Shane is a very good diver. Scott offers to teach Kim to swim, but she doesn't have time today.
Shane's training isn't going so well now. Danny introduces Shane to a girl called Sharon. Max tells Danny off for distracting Shane and there is a bit of a scene.
Jim is digging the garden with no shirt on(!) Daphne comes up and asks if he's seen Des. She asks if Jim would approve of her renting a room in Des's and he says it's none of his business what Des decides. He says he hopes Daphne gets it though. Daphne is pleased.
Des says that he doesn't want Daphne living there - he doesn't want to rent to a woman. Paul tries to talk him round but fails. Daphne says that she's not trying to seduce him - just rent a room, and she can provide references and a bond. Des says no - he knows what women are like, but Daphne says he doesn't know what this woman is like! Des is also worried about what the neighbours will say, but Daphne is only interested in what Des thinks. She suggests a one-month trial.
Max is recounting his encounter with Daphne to Maria. Maria says Shane can make his own choice about who he goes out with. She tells Max to lay off Shane.
Jim comes in to help Max with his living room ceiling which has been damaged by a leaky bath running (apparently No.24 has an upstairs!!) Jim tells Max that Daphne seems very nice, but Max is more concerned that she's a stripper. Jim says he doesn't care what she does for a living. Max is appalled!
Front Garden of the Robinsons
Helen is painting and Jim is doing some work in the garden. Daphne comes up with Paul and tells Jim that Des has agree to let her rent a room in his house. Jim and Helen congratulate her. Julie isn't too chuffed with this turn of events.
Lucy asks Julie what happens to all the food when a wedding is cancelled. Lucy thinks Daphne is pretty but Julie thinks Daphne will give the street a bad name. Julie says that Des had better watch who he rents a room out to, or he won't ever get a decent girl for himself.
LUCY: What's the difference between a decent girl and a stripper?
JULIE: Well, I'm a decent girl and she isn't. That's the difference.
Outside the Swimming Pool
Scott is talking to Kim but she dashes off when she realises she has to get home for dinner.
Paul opens the door and a woman called Mrs Armitage runs in and tells Paul to shut the door behind him. She says her husband is in a bad mood. She regales Paul about her marriage woes, much to his discomfort.
Paul suggests that she has some counselling. Helen tries to creep past but Mrs Armitage sports her. She reluctantly goes to make a cup of tea.
Shane comes in from the pool. Maria asks him if he's seen Danny, but Shane hasn't. Shane tells Max off for embarrassing Danny at the pool but Max is unrepentant.
Danny is telling Des that he's fed up of his father picking on him. Danny says that Max is a failed athlete (a runner) so he's trying to live his ambitions through Shane.
Shane comes in looking for Daphne - Des says that he's given Daphne a one-month trial. Shane tells Danny that Max is always over-reacting, but he'll protect him.
Julie is setting the table and saying that she doesn't know if she wants to go away on holiday that weekend. Scott comes in and answers the phone to Kim - she tells him that she had a good time that morning. Scott asks if she wants to go out on Saturday. Kim agrees happily.
Kim's mum comes in and Kim tells her that she's going out on the weekend with a girlfriend. Kim's mum says that she doesn't like Kim going out on the weekend. Kim says she's going anyway!
Outside the Robinsons
Lorraine has turned up and greets Helen happily - she says she's going over to Des's. Scott asks Helen quietly if Daphne has moved in yet.
Des is on the phone trying to cancel the honeymoon tickets when Lorraine lets herself in. Des isn't too chuffed to see her and says that things are over and done with between them. Lorraine flirtily tells him that it can't be easy going to bed on his own every night(!) Lorraine says she might have made a mistake in calling off the wedding, but Des isn't impressed. Lorraine says she really misses him and wants to make it up to him.
Just then Daphne comes in and Des introduces her to Lorraine.
DAPHNE: I'll just go on through.
LORRAINE: Go on through where?
DAPHNE: I live here!
Lorraine is very unimpressed with this. Des tells her that it's none of her concern - she was the one that dumped him! He says he has to pay off the debts Lorraine left him with somehow, so he's taken in a lodger.
Daphne starts to make them all a cup of tea!
Kim tells the doctor that she wants to go on the Pill.
