Roger and Val return from the pub where Liam failed to turn up though he later knocks on the door but leaves without waiting for an answer. Distant relative Barbara rings to tell Val her uncle Jack has died. This makes her extremely maudlin,especially as she believes Pam Bagnall has beaten her to becoming deputy head and she reflects on past times,writing an elegaic poem for Jack. Then Liam returns but only to leave a box of chocolates on the door-step.
