Phil's excited at the arrival of his new telescope but can't quite fathom how to programme it, until Daniel arrives. He manages to sort it out for Phil and they gaze excitedly at Saturn. When Jill comes out to have a go, Phil's not impressed when she describes Saturn as that "yellowy blob" then heads back in as she's getting chilly.
Mike tells Brenda about an idea he's had to solve Roy and Hayley's housing problem: to split the house down the middle, one half for Mike and the other for Roy and Hayley. Roy could pay a mortgage against his share of the house, and Brenda would eventually inherit the other half. But Brenda's unenthusiastic and asks for some time to think it over.
Brenda admits to Tom that she feels weird about it and doesn't want to lose her old room. Tom says that Roy's getting a better deal as he will have his share of equity now so that he can get on the housing ladder, while Brenda will have to wait. He advises Brenda to talk to Mike, otherwise she'll resent it for the rest of her life. There's no use being a martyr. She should tell Mike and Roy they can't do it!
