Rob tells Helen to stay in bed and have a day off after her spell last night, and assure her he hasn't forgotten about his job interview today. Helen's surprised to get a letter saying she's booked in for a scan. Rob has organised this early scan, going private, as a surprise for Helen - they can find out the sex of the baby. Pat thinks it's a lovely gesture. Rob later sees Helen and Pat at the shop and, to Helen's dismay, explains that although the interview went well, he has withdrawn from the next stage of the application process. Helen thought the job was what Rob wanted - and she's worried about money. However, Rob says his priority is to Helen, Henry, their baby and the shop. Eddie and Clarrie reluctantly agree on a pokey one-bed flat as their only living option. Following complaints about Joe being seen in his underwear, and generally making Grey Gables look untidy, Kathy's sorry to have to ask the Grundys to leave the hotel soon. Clarrie explains to Eddie that she has spoken to the Council and Joe can be assessed for emergency accommodation. Eddie sadly agrees that Joe needs to go into a home - but who's going to break it to him?
