MIKE: Anyone would think I was Jack the Ripper.
Daphne says that Jane will get over it in time, but Mike says he doesn't know who to trust anymore. Daphne tells him to have confidence in his friends.
Clive and Madge are chatting happily during a quiet period. Madge is still worried about her parents marriage though.

Later at the pub

The Coffee Shop
Jane comes in and sits dejectedly at the counter. She asks Daphne for advice - she wonders if there's any truth in the letter. Daphne says she doesn't believe a word of the contents of the letter - in any case an anonymous letter is very cowardly. She tells Jane that she has to make her own mind up - not listen blindly to Mrs Mangel.
Charlene comes in and she and Jane sit at a table. Charlene says that the letter is a sick joke and she knows what that's like. Charlene tells Jane to go and apologise to Mike for not believing him.

Scott calls round just as Sue is leaving. He's surprised to see Sue there.
The Coffee Shop

She tells Mike that she doesn't know how he can show his face in public. Everyone there defends Mike, but he storms out.
When Mike has gone, Charlene tells Mrs Mangel off for sullying Mike's reputation - she has no facts. Jane agrees - she's done everything to please Mrs Mangel, but just this once she's going to do something for her. She goes after Mike.
Jane catches up with Mike and tells him that she's sorry for not believing him at first, but Mrs Mangel influenced her. Mike says reasonably that Mrs Mangel is still her grandmother, but Jane says that she's fed up of her. She and Mike have a bit of a pash. They decide to be boyfriend/girlfriend. Jane laughs and says that Mike will become known as Tarzan!
CLIVE:(brightly) Good afternoon Mrs Mangel! You look positively radiant this afternoon!
MRS MANGEL: Don't you try to sweet talk me!

Paul is ranting at Madge for not doing the measures of alcohol properly.
Ray comes in. Madge says that she's fed up of the way she's been treated today. But Ray has come to apologise to Madge - he was actually pulled over by the police this afternoon. If Madge had let him have another drink he'd have been over the limit and the police would have thrown the book at him, which would have been disastrous for his business. He tells Paul that he's got himself a great barmaid in Madge.
