Tom asks Pip to help Brenda with the burger van at next Monday night’s Jubilee celebrations. At lunch, Tom is delighted to hear that Tony has finally hired someone to help out at Bridge Farm. The man, named Trevor, is apparently quite a character who spends his spare time gigging.
Usha offers to wash Amy’s clothes once her own load is finished, but Amy rejects her help. Usha is irritated with Amy’s childish response and demands to know how long she’ll continue to be so churlish. Usha points out that Amy’s behaviour is affecting Alan as well as hurting her. Determined to have the last word, Amy says that Usha has no right to speak on behalf of her father. Furthermore, Amy accuses Usha of having an agenda, declareing that their step-mother/daughter relationship was a sham.
Keen to avoid disappointment, Ruth and David agree to go ahead with Open Farm Sunday. They ask Pip to arrange for some Young Farmers to act as stewards. Usha turns up at Brookfield, looking for some peace and quiet in a sane, sensible house, but Ben has got everyone playing a game of the irrationally humorous ‘Sausages’. Ruth tells Usha she’s come to the wrong place!
