Without his job at Bridge Farm Jazzer is looking for things to do. He joins Jim on an early morning birdwatching trip. Jazzer's incessant grumbling about his sacking from Bridge Farm and where it has left him makes it hard for Jim to concentrate. On their return Jazzer cooks Jim a fry up. Jim confronts Jazzer about his never-ending talk about Bridge Farm, Jazzer is indignant: as far as he's concerned Bridge Farm is history. Emma and Fallon head to Greenbury to hunt out bargains at a jumble trail while Kirsty's opens the tea room in their absence. As there look round the stalls, they discuss their catering of Brian and Jennifer's 40th wedding anniversary party. And they're waiting to hear if they've made the shortlists of the Borchester Food and Drink Awards. While Ursula is at church Henry finds Rob in bed. Rob asks if Henry can occupy himself by watching telly but Henry doesn't like being on his own. Instead, they read a book that Ursula bought Henry. Rob uses the tale to explain to Henry that even the nicest of mothers can do very bad things and it's important that Henry tells the truth when people ask him about his own mother.
