Jim's pleased to bump into Jazzer and they enjoy a pint and catch up at the Bull, where they both admit that they're tired of being out of their normal home - and miss each other's company. Jazzer also admits he can't make out his new boss. Neil stops in to put up an appeal for help with the village hall restoration. Kenton has also shared his plans for renovating the Bull. Ruth thanks Rex for him and Toby playing touch rugby with Ben. Rex shares his thoughts about being a young lad and not being able to show your feelings - remembering when he lost his Gran. Ruth remembers her own childhood, before coming to Brookfield and joining a huge extended family. At times she just needed to talk to her own Mum. Rob drives an edgy Helen to the clinic for her appointment at Borchester General, where her pregnancy becomes official. Afterwards, happy Rob vows to take the best care of her and looks forward to telling Pat and Tony. Pat's delighted. But why didn't they tell her sooner?! She gives Rob a big hug. Helen says don't tell anyone, except for Tony and Tom. Rob shares some other news - he's going to complete a step-parental responsibility agreement for Henry - so they're on the way to having their own complete, perfect little family.
