Helen and Pat discuss Helen's forthcoming appointment at the fertility clinic. Helen declines Pat's offer to accompany her; she needs to seem capable of having a baby on her own. Pat's excited by it and Helen's very grateful for Pat's support.
Tony tells Pat the whole thing's a bad idea although he'll support Helen. But he's worried because he watched Jennifer struggle as a single parent for years. When Pat points out that Jennifer made a success of her life, Tony says she still missed out on a lot and he wonders whether Helen realises that you can't have everything.
Ruth tells Jill that Usha's finding it hard sleeping alone while Alan's camping out. When Jill says she knows what she means, Ruth apologises, but Jill's fine; she doesn't want people watching what they say around her.
David's edgy when Pip's late back from lunch with Jude, telling Ruth he's a bad influence. Pip's upset when Jill gives her Phil's piano music and says Jude's been a great support. Jill suggests it might help things if David and Ruth met Jude. Later, Jill encourages David and Ruth to invite Jude round. They might be surprised. Pip seems receptive when Ruth suggests Tuesday for tea.
