Brenda's still troubled by Lilian's attitude, but Tom thinks she might be paranoid. He's looking at his pie questionnaires, and they wish each other luck for the rest of the day.
Lilian resents Brenda's efficiency in the office, telling her she's not answering the phone correctly. To Brenda's annoyance, Lilian telephones the office later to check up on her.
Susan's surprised to see Shula filling in for Jill at the shop. She's worried Shula hasn't had any training. They comment on Joe's vegetable stall outside. Susan thinks he's got a nerve. He's only doing it to spite her and Lynda. She notices carrots in Shula's bag and is cross when Shula admits they're from Joe. The more people encourage Joe, the longer he's going to stay. Shula incurs Susan's wrath again by trying to sell Pat a book of stamps - no-one is allowed into her space!
Kathy's confides to Pat. She's relieved that Shula's organising an outing for Kenton's birthday. It means she's not left trying to play happy families. She's not sure she can trust herself to keep up appearances any more. Just when Jamie needs a father figure, Kenton's not around. She wants to help Jamie but wishes she knew how.
