Usha, armed with an inflatable mattress, visits Alan in his tent in the Memorial Gardens watched by Josh and Jamie hidden in a hedge. As Usha and Alan cosy up, they hear giggles outside. Alan investigates and sees two kids running off. Alan and Usha laughingly agree to resume things when the coast is clear.

Oliver's disappointed to hear there were complaints about his slow service last night when Grey Gables was a waiter short. Jennifer and Lilian have a meal there where they also comment on Oliver's friendly but slow service. When Lilian notices a disgruntled man at the next table heading off towards the kitchen, she warns Oliver, who manages to head off the diner off and placate him.

Lilian admits to Jennifer that she didn't tell Matt about Paul's visit. When Jennifer warns Lilian about getting too involved with Paul, Lilian says she's already agreed to go to the funeral as she's trying to keep the door open for Matt. She tearfully says how much she misses him. Service is so slow that they cancel their starters. This doesn't surprise Ian who tells Oliver that if he wasn't the co-owner of the hotel, he'd tell him where to put the starters!
