Pat thinks Peggy should see Jack less frequently but knows Peggy won't want to hear that.
Usha tells Ruth that she suggested Alan camps out for a few days for Lent but she may have made an awful mistake. He's proposing to camp out for the whole six weeks, without any modern amenities. Ruth laughs at such a mad idea but Usha's worried he's actually going to go ahead with it. David tells Usha about Pip's new boyfriend, who Ruth has learned is doing a diploma in web design. Usha thinks Pip should hang on to him - that's where the money is.
David and Ruth watch Pip get out of Jude's BMW convertible, much to David's displeasure. He wants to know more, and quizzes Pip.
