Paul and Gail's
Jim is confused. Gail says that they're going to try to sort things out, but they haven't yet. Scott says he doesn't get it - how can they be madly in love one minute and like this the next. Helen says they're intruding now and takes the family off home.
When everyone has left, Paul tells Gail he'd better follow them and explain.
Kerry is cooking a casserole when Harold comes in from singing with the choir. It's for Joe, Toby and Nolene because Nolene is sick. Harold sees a message by the phone that Kerry's taken for him - "Can't wait to see you, sweetie"(!) Harold is most uncomfortable - he can't think who she is. Kerry says she sounds quite nice! Harold makes Kerry promise not to say anything to Madge about it.
Everyone arrives home and Beverly has returned from being on call. Helen sends Katie off to play with Toby while Paul fills Beverly in. Paul says that Gail originally went to the States because she thought Paul cared more about his work than her. Now he's got to prove to her that she means more to him than his career. He doesn't think it'll be easy. Gail is going to stay at Lassiter's for the time being.
Toby and Katie are playing Monopoly and discuss why adults can't just be friends, as kids are! Kerry calls round with the casserole she's made and Joe is pleased, even though it's a vegetarian casserole. Kerry thanks Joe for her Easter Egg and gives him a little pash. Joe invites Kerry round later to share the casserole. Katie and Toby look downcast.
Harold is trying to think who the mystery woman, "Betty" is. Scott comes in, depressed about Paul and Gail. He doesn't tell Harold the details though. He goes off to clean the pool.
Madge arrives home and he hurriedly hides Betty's letters in a drawer. One is left sticking out. Harold hugs Madge in joy to welcome her home.
Gail comes round to see Jane for a bit of a talk.
In the kitchen, Nolene looks at the casserole. Katie suggests that she adds meat to the casserole and gets some bacon out of the fridge(!) Katie and Toby smile conspiratorially at each other - they know Kerry is a vegetarian.
Henry is delighted to see Madge. He hugs her excitedly and she tells him that Dan is feeling much better. Scott runs in and hugs Madge too. Madge tells him that Charlene misses him a lot. Harold hands Madge a drink.
HAROLD: There you go, Madge. That'll make you feel Betty.
Gail is telling Jane that wasn't game-playing when she left - she really had decided to leave Paul. She has only been persuaded under duress to give him a chance to prove himself.
Scott comes in for a private word with Paul. He's worried that he and Gail might not get back together. Scott is generally gutted and wants to help Paul to sort things out. Paul gets a bit cross and tells Scott to keep his nose out of his business - things are difficult enough without Scott giving him advice.
Kerry sees that there is bacon in the casserole. She thinks that Joe has done it on purpose. Joe says that he didn't, it was just an accident on Nolene's part. Nolene apologises and Kerry goes off home. When she's gone, Nolene and Joe start to bicker about the situation. Nolene says she's off to pack - she's had enough.
Bishops, the following morning
Kerry is telling Madge what happened with the casserole. Henry is looking for a missing phone number. They all sit down to breakfast together and Harold joins them. There is a bit of a stunned silence then Kerry says he's overdone things with the aftershave. Harold says he just spilt some aftershave on his shirt.
Nolene has packed and is about to leave. Katie comes in to see Toby. He's very down that Joe and Nolene will never get back together now. Katies kisses him on the cheek to say goodbye, much to his disgust.
Scott is trying to reason with Gail - he thinks she and Paul should spend more time together. Gail asks Scott not to pressure them - the only people who can work things out are her and Paul.
Harold is still distracted about the Betty situation. Madge clears the table and starts to help Henry to looks for his phone number. She opens the drawer with the letters from Betty, takes them out and start to read them. Harold snatches them and Madge asks him what's going on. She takes the letters back and starts to read them aloud.
MADGE: 'I'll never forget that night we spent together, love Betty'
Madge tells Harold that he's better explain himself.
