The episode

Sally:
Who would have thought in the middle of the city you could find such calm.
Tim:
All the stresses of the day feel like they're just floating away.
Sally:
It's peaceful, nice. Want me to row for a bit?
Tim:
No, you're fine. Just sit back and enjoy the view.
Sally:
You're quite different.
Tim:
What do you mean?
Sally:
Compared to how you are at work. You seem much more yourself here.
Tim:
Sometimes in the cafe I feel like one of these swans.
Sally:
You, graceful? I'm not so sure.
Tim:
No, no. I mean I'm all calm and controlled on the surface but underneath I'm furiously paddling away.
Sally:
Why?
Tim:
Worrying about customers, trying to keep you and Jack happy, stressing about the accounts ...
Sally:
Oh Tim. It shouldn't be like that.
Tim:
I know. But what can I do?
