Usha pops into Brookfield when out running. Ruth teases her about going running to escape Mabel over Christmas.

Usha continues her run and is caught up by Annabelle. They're both out of breath, but decide to run together. They discuss how unfit they are after Christmas. Annabelle suggests they run back the long way, though of course Usha doesn't have to join her. Usha says she'll enjoy the company.

Pip comes looking for her parents. She shows them a leaflet about open days for agricultural courses at Borsetshire College. She says this doesn't mean she wants to do agriculture, but she'll see if her friends are going. Exhausted Usha appears, desperate for a cuppa. Annabelle's pushed her to her limits, and she's agreed to go out with her again!

Chris and Alice arrive back in Southampton. They start unpacking her stuff but Alice suddenly spies a friend and races off to say hello, leaving Christopher to follow with her bags. Later, at the station, they say goodbye. Chris thinks Alice won't have time to call him - she'll be too busy partying. Alice says she always has time for him, but he mustn't sit moping. She trusts him, and promises she'll be good too.

Episode written by Simon Frith.
