Mavis makes Emily wonder if the Bishops are fostering to paper over the cracks in their marriage. Ernie tells her it doesn't matter if they are as they're still helping children. Ken is touched when the retiring women buy him some cufflinks. He is shocked to hear Pollard has effectively been sacked. Pollard tells him to keep his sympathy.
