Shirley interrogates Kim and Denise about Phil paying her rent and confronts Phil in the cafe, angrily insisting she doesn't need charity. Phil protests he was trying to help. Phil points out they'd be married by now if Heather hadn't died, which Shirley leaps on as proof that Phil's been paying her rent out of guilt. Shirley takes her rage out on Sharon and is stopped by Denise. Denise makes an emotional Shirley consider that Phil could still be in love with her. Later, Shirley warns Phil to think of a number and triple it - with everything she knows about him, Phil still owes Shirley big time.
