Alice and Chris have been shut in his room since yesterday. Susan reminds Neil that they're in love. Neil knows that Susan would like to see more of Chris but Susan has plenty to do, working on her training notes and handouts for the shop volunteers. Neil hopes she gets some thanks. They hear a thump and laughter, and Neil wonders what's going on upstairs.
Chris and Alice are snuggling up together when Susan knocks on the door, asking if everything's all right. Alice quickly scrambles for her clothes. Chris doesn't appreciate the interference, so they agree to go to Home Farm.
Pip tells Ruth about the planned trip to Newquay. Ruth appreciates Pip checking with her but points out that there's revision and her environmental study. Pip insists she can do it all but would need a loan. Ruth agrees to talk to David. David won't hear of it. He simply doesn't trust Jude to look after Pip. Pip's most put out but declares that she's going on holiday anyway - she doesn't care and she'll use the money Grandad Solly left her. David assures Ruth that Pip's not going. He'll talk to her again and see to it that she's staying here.
