Worried Clarrie turns up at Kathy's looking for a small plastic folder which she thinks she lost there. When she can't find it she has to admit that it contains all her records from the slimming club with everyone's weight listed in it. Kathy calms her down telling her not to worry.

Eddie's still unhappy at his enforced diet - especially as he's been "winner of the week" two weeks in a row. When he suggests making himself some "proper" food, Clarrie reminds him of all the people who are sponsoring him.

Lonely and dejected Matt turns up at Oliver and Caroline's early for dinner, where he unsuccessfully tries to conceal that he's not coping very well being single again. Becoming drunk and maudlin, Matt says he felt upset that Debbie didn't tell him about the anaerobic digester - especially when she's someone he relies on. He then admits that he's really missing Lilian - more than he ever thought he would - but that he's left it too late now. By the end of the evening both Oliver and Caroline actually feel quite sorry for him, though they never thought they'd say this of Matt.
