Tony is having qualms about selling the cows, and his resultant change of status. But he is going ahead, he assures Pat. He wonders if they should think about investing the sale money in their pension or buy property.

The buyer from Bellingham's wants to meet Tom, to discuss a trial run for both lines of his ready meals.

David has a proposal for Pip. He realises he was a bit harsh expecting her to pay for a new car on her own, so he's willing to contribute towards the insurance, and pay for a suitable car to be thoroughly checked. Pip accepts his offer. She enlists Spencer to help her find a suitable car at the weekend, as well as training her for the single wicket competition so that she can beat Josh.

Lilian assumes Elona must have a new job, as she's given notice on 3, The Green.

Matt thinks they should check out the plots of land that Lower Loxley is selling. It's too much for stressed Lilian, who gets in a state when she spills tea on her brief for the Gilbert's Cross designers. Momentarily sympathetic, Matt gives her an opportunity to confess what's on her mind. But she can't.

It's the last straw for Matt. He abruptly leaves, to give the go-ahead for Paul to be taught a lesson.
