Marshall comments that it's been tricky for Debbie turning down Matt's business proposition. Adam agrees; he's glad he's not in that position. At their meeting Debbie tells Adam she thinks that if they put in competitive figures for next year they'll stand a pretty good chance of keeping the contract with Borchester Land. She confides that she feels guilty about her decision over Matt. She and Adam agree it's a sad situation, not just for Matt but for Lilian as well. Adam assures Debbie that he'll watch out for Lilian after Debbie leaves.
Over a cosy breakfast with Tom, Brenda asserts that Mike's too besotted with his new lady friend to miss her. She thinks she moved out just in time.
Tony tells Tom he likes Marshall; he seems to know his farming and is a hit with Jennifer. He's not so sure Marshall's finding Brian so easy, and there's the big lunch party on Tuesday. Tony confesses he's trying to stay out of the feud between Lilian and Jennifer.
Later Tony's delighted to find that Tom and Brenda are back together. Tom assures him it's fine for Tony to tell whoever he likes.
