Masood pops into Carol's before work but feels put out to find David staying with them whilst he recovers. Carol tries to reassure him that David will leave as soon as he's better. When Carol brings David breakfast in bed, he winds her up by questioning her relationship with Masood.

Later, Carol and Masood have lunch and David listens in to their conversation. As she promises Masood that David won't come between them, there is a crash from upstairs; Carol runs to David. David purposely dropped his lunch on the floor, cutting his hand on broken glass. There is clearly a spark between them as she cleans David's hand. Afterwards, Masood and Carol argue over David's presence; Carol reassures him and he leaves. Masood later tells David to let him and Carol get on with their lives. David reminds him that Carol has a habit of falling in love with him...
