  • Joe finally snaps and leads a revolt of the little people: not another moment will they stay at the rehearsal. Even Kenton is roped in and he wasn’t invited to the party.
  • David berates his brother for not telling Kathy about his mistaken proposal; he has tried but does not want to spoil Christmas. Phil’s speech goes down well; Bert does not know what to say. He seems very keen to keep any eye on Freda who is at the bar!
  • As David takes the boys home, Kenton is encouraged to seek an occasion to make a big gesture of giving his lovely ring to Kathy. She will be delighted.
