Jane Smith tells Archie Gibbs that she is worried about Pat Grogan because he hasn't been at work for two days.  Archie says Pat is a travelling man and he has probably moved on.  "Like all the others," says Archie.  "How can you make snap judgements.  Pat's not like the rest of them," says Jane. 
Alan Brisley has coffee with Jim Baines in his chalet and Jim thanks him for all his help.  He says he would like to do something for him in return.  "It's too late now," says Jim.  "It's not.  It can still be fixed," says Alan Brisley.  "Why not," shrugs Jim.  Alan Brisley puts a phone call through to Liverpool to arrange publicity.  Jim asks Sharon Metcalfe if she would come with him for the publicity but Sharon tells him he should take Muriel.

Tish Hope goes to Heywood Farm and tells Benny that the motel are expecting their delivery of vegetables and they can't afford to be let down.  Benny tells her that the delivery is ready but he hasn't got anyone to deliver it.
Jane Smith takes Pat Grogan his coffee in the staff room and she asks him why he kissed her.  Pat says he kissed her because he wanted to and because she is a good person.  "I kissed you but I bet you could kiss the living daylights out of me," says Pat.  Jane leans across and kisses him.  "Like that you mean," asks Jane.  "I'm speechless," says Pat.  "Oh you," laughs Jane and hugs him.  Carney comes into the staff room at that moment and see's them.  Jane hurries out, embarrassed.  Carney tells Pat that he has known Jane for a few years now and he is very fond of her.  "Although you may think she's alone, it doesn't mean there aren't people to stick up for her.  So if you do anything to upset her you'll be sorry," warns Carney.
