Rex is exasperated that Toby has still not signed the rental agreement for the land, and even more exasperated by Toby's romantic advice. Toby encourages Rex to "get in there" with Pip, partially because her farming knowledge would prove useful. Rex tells Toby he gives men a bad name. Jennifer joins Peggy in refusing to invest in Kate's new business. She drives off in a huff, but Brian is pleased. Ruth and Rex discuss their new farming schemes, going back to traditional methods with more nutrients. Ruth tells Rex that Pip will be attending The Bull's fancy dress Flippin' Pancakes event. Later, the event is going swimmingly until Belgian chef Zoe tells Jolene she is unhappy making pancakes all night - despite the fact that it is Pancake Day. Meanwhile, Brian tells Tom about Adam being back in charge with the Estate contract. Tom advises Rex and Toby that they will need an "egg-mobile", and elect to ask Bert to build it. Rex is disappointed when Ruth arrives at The Bull without Pip in tow. Zoe quits after a stressful night in the Bull kitchen, so Jolene gives Kenton an ultimatum. Either they hire her ex-husband Wayne or Kenton will have to run the kitchen himself.
