Brian’s disappointed that his PR efforts on Monday didn’t get a mention in the Echo. Jennifer shows him the anti-dairy campaign website and Brian storms off to confront Pat. Pat insists it’s not her doing, but darkly suggests he should expect more of its kind.
Lilian’s happy to be Jennifer’s chaperone for the launch of Ambridge Organics. The evening starts well, and Tom is pleased to see Shelly Brazil arrive. Helen welcomes everyone before handing over to Pat who gives a rousing speech.
Jennifer thinks Tony is ignoring her and wants to leave early. Lilian points out that he’s hardly talking to anyone and notices Tony’s looking tired. They agree it must have taken a lot of work to prepare for tonight. They chat about the Promises Auction and Lilian suggests that Jennifer should bid for Harry: it would cheer her up.
With the last guest gone, the place looks like a bombsite. Helen’s happy to finish off the cleaning in the morning. Tony doesn’t want to think about tomorrow – Tom’s informed him he’s going to have to milk. Tom and Tony agree that Pat’s speech was great. Pat insists it was easy to find the words for something that she really cares about.
