- Piper tells Terese she had a moment with Cassius but she's not ready
- Terese tells Xanthe she's worried Piper will never move on from Tyler; maybe it's time to give her a little nudge?
Piper is working and it's obvious from Xanthe's fishing for information that Terese has told her about her moment with Cassius.
XANTHE: He is literally like a living fireman calendar!
PIPER: OK, that's not the reason I like him, by the way.
XANTHE: So you do like him?!
Piper tells Xanthe she still loves Tyler.
Mishti tells David and Aaron that Dilhan has been officially charged and there was lots of dodgy stuff on his laptop. She feels sorry for the other women and is glad nobody saw her like that. Aaron and David have met a guy called Travis and as Mishti's appointed dating consultants suggest she go out with him. Leo comes in and overhears Mishti saying it's too soon after what she's been through. Mishti tells him it's just work stuff and he leaves. The guys talk Mishti into it.
Terese gives Leo some figures that need double checking and asks if he's OK. Leo says he just saw Mishti and it threw him. Terese tells him she wants to hire Cassius as the in-house gardener. Leo is amused and Terese explains she's hoping Piper will move on from Tyler with Cassius.
Sheila watches Fay writing on the specials board and wonders what hoity-toity special "Lady Muck" has got on today. Chloe comes out of Harold's and invites Xanthe to join her watching a bodybuilding competition.
CHLOE: They are so funny... but also kind of arousing!
Xanthe tells Chloe she's on an important mission.
XANTHE: Do you know Cassius?
CHLOE: Only to look at!
Xanthe is planning a series of tests for Cassius.
CHLOE: Written or practical?
XANTHE: Practical. The three main things that make up a relationship.
CHLOE: Ah, big laugh, big wallet, big hands!
XANTHE: Trust, loyalty and kindness!
Chloe offers to help.
Terese watches as Gary laughs with Fay (who has apparently been standing and admiring her specials board for the last few minutes) about her taco salad bowl.
GARY: You'd want to take it easy on the chipotle though... have me firing out of both ends!
Gary has brought some desserts and takes them inside to put them in the fridge. Terese approaches.
FAY: You would not believe what that man can do with a date! He's a bona fide genius.
TERESE: Oh, I know.
FAY: He brings nothing but pleasure!
Terese storms into the office, complaining about Fay's insensitivity.
TERESE: Surely she knows I've been engaged to Gary not once but twice! And yet she still gushes to me about how amazing his desserts are!
Leo tells her she's a hypocrite; she wants Piper to move on yet she's still clinging to Gary. Terese claims she doesn't cling but Leo says he knows how Terese always chose Gary over Paul because he was the safer option. Terese says she never saw Gary as second best but Leo tells her she can't be upset at him for moving on with Fay. Terese calls Leo a hypocrite in return for having a fling with Chloe to get over Mishti but he's still mopey-eyed every time he sees her.
Surrey Park / Penthouse suite
Mishti is dressed up and on her way to meet Travis whilst talking on the phone to David, trying to get more information about him.
MISHTI: Right now I'm picturing Bear Grylls.
DAVID: Well I'd take that!
MISHTI: In the episode where he drinks his own urine!
DAVID: Well at least you know Shane will love him!
Mishti spots Travis, wearing shorts and flip-flops, and tells David he doesn't have much fashion sense.
Terese and Paul are having a meeting and Paul can tell something's bothering her. Terese tells him that Leo went too far giving her his opinion. Paul asks if he was right; why else would she be so upset?
Chloe deliberately drops Xanthe's wallet behind Cassius and sits back down with Xanthe. Cassius spots the wallet and opens it.
CHLOE: He might just take the cash; that's what I'd do! What? It's a finder's fee!
Cassius gives the wallet back to Xanthe and the cash is all still there; he's passed the trust exercise.
Leo arrives to work from home because Terese was annoying him and Paul tells him they should learn to find some common ground. Leo questions David about Mishti having a hard time. David tells him he doesn't have to worry about her. Leo takes out his phone and considers calling Mishti.
Travis tells Mishti about his time volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary in Borneo. He asks Mishti if she's done much traveling but she says she loves her work. Travis says he doesn't travel to escape his work but to broaden his horizons, help endangered creatures and to meet cool and interesting people. Mishti is starting to look impressed. She gets a call from Leo but ignores it.
Xanthe takes Cassius for a juice to thank him for giving her wallet back but leaves him with Piper. Chloe approaches to flirt with Cassius.
CASSIUS: Weren't you wearing something like a little warmer before?
CHLOE: Oh, I've seen you wearing less! Maybe we're two peas in a pod!
Piper grimaces. Chloe says she'll be wearing something scandalous to a club tonight and invites him along but Cassius says he's more the quiet pub kind of guy. Chloe re-joins Xanthe; that's another tick for Cassius.
Terese is now working at a table in the pub and casting an eye at Fay and Gary. Fay takes a phone call and Terese tells Gary that the two of them seem to be getting on well. Gary says Fay is truly inspiring. Terese tells him she's happy for him, but it's clearly hard for her to say.
Mishti is amazed by Travis' stories. Travis tells her she's a caped crusader but Mishti says there's not much beyond work. Travis says he used to be all work and no play until his dad died and he realised life's too short. Mishti says she's tried living in the moment lately but it always seems to backfire on her; she's better off living to work. Travis says she's here now and starts dancing to music on his phone. Oh my goodness, he's playing 'Soul Kind of Feeling', and I'm back in the Coffee Shop in the early 1990s!
Number 26 back yard
Chloe and Xanthe have called Cassius because they have an emergency... Clementine is stuck on the roof!
CASSIUS: Look the truth is I'm ailurophobic.
CHLOE: We don't care where you were born!
CASSIUS: No, no, no, it's a fear of cats!
Cassius says if it means that much to them he'll do it and starts to climb the ladder but Xanthe tells him he doesn't have to do it. Cassius leaves and Chloe tells Xanthe she can't fail him because of a cat phobia.
XANTHE: I don't want to fail him. It's just ever since Ben I honestly think he's the most incredible human being I've ever met in my life!
CHLOE: Uh oh, has Piper got some competition?
Xanthe reports back to Terese that Cassius is more than perfect! Terese says Piper needs to think she's moving on herself. Xanthe says she's not an amateur! Phase two is compatibility testing.
Elevator / penthouse suite
Mishti tells David that she and Travis couldn't be more different but it was just what she needed; she thinks she'll see him again. Mishti gets a call from Aaron and it's clearly not good news.
DAVID: What's wrong? What's happened?
MISHTI: My worst nightmare.
Gary is feeding Fay more desserts as Terese sits down with a coffee and Leo returns the figures to her. Fay and Gary laugh loudly and Chloe comes in.
CHLOE: O.M.G. What's the deal with Mum and your ex? Looks like they're about to get a room!
Terese tells Chloe she thinks her mother should ask Gary out because Gary would be too shy to make the first move. Chloe asks if she would be OK with it and Terese says she has moved on. Chloe leaves and Leo apologises for being harsh earlier but Terese says she needed to hear it. Leo admits he's not over Mishti. Paul comes in and is glad to see the two of them getting along.
Dilhan must have uploaded the video of Mishti before they deleted it from the computer. Mishti asks David not to tell Leo. Aaron is going to try and get the video removed.
DAVID: And we know it was Dilhan so is there some kind of order you can get to make him take it down?
MISHTI: It's already been passed on from the original site. I can't control anything now.
AARON: Mish, you can't let yourself think like that.
MISHTI: How am I meant to think? My reputation is ruined.
