There are plans to scrap Matt's development to preserve the great crested newts. Annabelle advises him that court would be expensive and time-consuming. She suggests commissioning a new report to make sure they've got all the facts right.
Matt's trying to placate Lilian over a meal but she brings Annabelle into the conversation. Spotting Jennifer, Matt invites her to join them - anything to change the subject! Lilian confides in Jennifer that she thinks the newts are just an excuse for Matt and Annabelle to spend a lot of time together.
The free stuffing offer has encouraged a few turkey orders. Eddie and Joe are making it but Clarrie's freezer is full. They call on Robert for help but Lynda's at home. Eddie sweet-talks her with the offer of Christmas greenery for her concert. She eagerly accepts their gift before apologising for not being able to offer them the use of her freezer.
Joe saves the day when he announces that Jim's happy to help - they can use Shula's freezer. Eddie thinks Jim's a brave man to not get Shula's agreement first, especially as he's removed some left-overs to make room. He's given them to Joe for the pig so their stuffing's safe and Barbarella gets a gourmet supper!
