Phil's old NFU friends are at Brookfield for his birthday. David's organised a tour of the farm and Bert's in fine form, delighted that he also remembers some of the faces. Phil's loving it - and seems to think he's back in charge.

Kenton's new waitress, Naomi, is good but nowhere near as flexible as Emma. Kenton insists he'll work his charm on her but he fails, and so is unable to leave her to lock and cash up while he goes round to see Phil.

Eventually, Kathy arrives at the café with a present for Phil but it's too late for her to go with Kenton - she's got to get to a parents' evening. She's also bought Meriel's birthday present. Kenton can't believe he's not seen her for four years and thinks they should take Jamie over for a visit. Kathy agrees to think about it - but some other time. Kenton needs to get to Brookfield quickly, so Kathy offers to stay and cash up.

Phil's birthday's a great success all round. Kenton arrives just in time, and Phil's delighted with his present. He appreciates the trouble everyone's been to. The family are just pleased Phil had such a happy birthday.
