Michael tells Jim that he can't go through with the wedding.
Jim tries to reason with Michael, but Michael says he's going home. Finally Jim insists Michael comes down the pub for a quiet drink and a chat.
JIM: Michael, you didn't ask her to marry you without thinking about it carefully, did you?
MICHAEL: No, of course not.
JIM: Then the least you can do is to think about this before you call it off.
MICHAEL: ...Alright. But I'm telling you now it won't do any good - my mind's made up.
Caroline comes round to see Adam. She needs him to chauffeur for them tomorrow - driving Mrs Foster to a funeral. She's an important investor in the Robinson Corporation.
Michael tells Jim that he has his reasons for not getting married, but Jim thinks he's just got cold feet. Jim persuades Michael not to do anything hasty - to sleep on it overnight. Michael finally agrees and says he'll tell Helen in the morning.
Helen arrives back and is surprised that everyone has gone home. Todd is clearing up the beer bottles and explains that Michael went home early. Helen wants Todd to go and see Cody before she goes to America, but he doesn't want to.
When Todd has gone to bed, Jim comes in, startling Helen. He doesn't tell her about Michael's cold feet, he just says they were having a quiet drink. His smile has become rather forced(!)
Ramsay Street, the following morning
Adam is heading off to the chauffeuring gig. Cody reckons that Caroline still fancies Adam(!)
Cody goes over to talk to Todd. The conversation is rather stilted as Cody is leaving tomorrow afternoon. Just as the conversation is starting to thaw out, Darren comes up and offers to walk Cody to school. Todd is rather downcast.
Adam and Caroline are chatting in the car about Gemma who is apparently getting on really well in Newcastle. Adam misses her a lot.
Mrs Foster's house
Mrs Foster is already out on the pavement.
MRS FOSTER: I couldn't bear to stay inside the house with him just...lying there.
Adam looks rather alarmed at this, and he looks even more alarmed when Mrs Foster sends him into the house to fetch the coffin of "Oscar". It turns out that Oscar is her pet poodle, however!
Oscar has been buried and a stone with his name on laid. Mrs Foster is too upset to read the eulogy, so Adam has to do it, trying to keep a straight face(!)
Micahel has come round. He tells Jim that he's not worthy of Helen because she doesn't know what he's really like.
JIM: What's to know? Come on, Michael! Are you an alcoholic...do you gamble? What the story?
Just then Helen comes in and Jim leaves them alone to talk.
MICHAEL: There's something we have to discuss.
Caroline, Adam and Mrs Foster are drinking a toast to Oscar. She's calmed down a bit now and is telling them stories about Oscar. She tells Caroline that she's definitely going to extend her investment in the Robinson Corporation for another year, and also slips Adam a very large tip, saying he's gone way beyond the call of duty today.
When Mrs Foster has gone, Caroline tells Adam that he is a wonderful person.
Darren and Cody are having a candlelight dinner. But she tells him that she's still hung up on Todd.
CODY: I still love Todd. I probably always will. I think about him all the time...
DARREN: What, even when you're with me?
CODY: Especially when I'm with you!
Darren decides to head off, looking fed up.
Todd and Emma are hanging out and having a pash. He's concerned to hear that Helen has gone out, supposedly "to the caterers".
Emma puts on some music but she picks Todd and Cody's song. He wants to turn it off, but she says she'll give him something else to remember(!) and they start pashing again. Meanwhile Cody comes in through the back door and is very upset to see Todd and Emma kissing and storms out.
When Cody has gone, Todd tells Emma that he still loves Cody. She's not impressed and she storms out as well(!) I'm not sure how that front door is still on its hinges.
Mrs Foster's House
Adam and Caroline have called by with a present for Mrs Foster - a new dog! She's very pleased indeed.
On the way home, Caroline tells Adam that she shouldn't have let him go. But he puts a stop to that straightaway, saying he's in love with Gemma.
Jim comes to meet Michael in the pub. He didn't break the news to Helen - he's decided to go through with the wedding after all. He loves Helen and can't live without her. Jim is chuffed and promises not to tell Helen about Michael's second thoughts.
Cody is crying on the sofa. Todd comes round and they argue a bit, but then they both admit how much they still love each other.
TODD: I still don't know how I'm going to cope when you leave. But I do know I love you.
CODY: I love you, too.
