Alan feels that if he'd won the vote on the pews the church would be offering indoor activities to the local youngsters, which would stop them trashing the churchyard. He tells Rachel that he's feeling too stretched to be able to do any real good. Rachel encourages him to work on his passion and suggests a monthly parish walk. This appeals to Alan - especially as he knows Usha would be keen too. Rachel agrees it would be good to get her involved.
Brian and Adam are still at each other's throats. After a heated exchange, a phone call from Matt inviting Brian for a game of golf sounds like the ideal tonic. But it's clear that Matt just wants to know how Lilian's doing. Brian says that Lilian regrets walking out on him, and encourages him to make the first move. Matt insists that he's the injured party but agrees to go and talk to her.
However, with Adam's encouragement, Lilian's enjoying champagne cocktails in the Bull, and what Matt sees is far from a vulnerable, miserable victim. urning to go, Matt tells Brian that Lilian's not missing him one bit. She's having the time of her life.
