Susan tells Emma that Keith's depressed at the prospect of spending Christmas in prison. As a distraction, Susan gets Emma to help her organise costumes at the Village Hall. Emma apologises for being distant lately, but Susan knows Emma has had a lot on her mind. At least now they can enjoy a laugh.

Kenton shows up to watch other acts and get inspiration for material. Lynda calls him conscientious - Jim calls him teacher's pet. A replacement has been found for the injured dancer. Kenton dropped in on a dance rehearsal (for research), which impresses Lynda. Jim can't contain himself - what a crawler!

In New York, Lilian's worn out from sightseeing. Matt impresses Lilian with a carriage ride in Central Park - he's clearly in a fussing mood. Lilian gets a text but doesn't check it, and they reflect on how far away Ambridge feels
right now.

Skating at the Rockefeller Centre, Matt's keen to know that everything's ok between the two of them now. Lilian assures him. Things become a bit more tense later when Matt encourages Lilian to ring Jennifer back (assuming the text was from Jennifer). Lilian points out the time difference, and then resolves to just sit and enjoy the view.
