Rodney wakes up feeling awful after his homophobic outburst. He feels even worse when Paul tells him that Enzo has ended their relationship. Later, in The Woolpack, Rodney apologises to Paul for his drunken ranting and is relieved to hear that he wasn’t the cause of their break-up. Rodney attempts to makes things better but makes them a hundred times worse with an insensitive remark about Paul soon picking someone up in bar. Paul tells Rodney that he is incapable of understanding that two men can love each other. Paul is furious and tells his father that it is possible for a man to love another man as much as he loves Diane. Going for the jugular Paul tells Rodney that he was faithful to Enzo for eight years and that's more than he's managed with anyone, even Diane. Later, at Mill Cottage, Rodney returns with a curry and a DVD as a peace offering. Rodney tells his son that their relationship means a lot to him. Paul is touched by Rodney's attempts to make amends for his mistake and agrees to a spot of ‘male bonding’ with him. Sadie discusses her marriage with Zoe and snaps at her when Zoe says that she's sure Jimmy has nothing to reproach her for.

To get her point across Sadie says that she's never looked at another man since the day they were married. Katie tells Donna about the cancellation of the catering order for the Tom and Charity's party.
