Jim wonders what the catch is when Mike hands over the Jaguar to him. Charlie and Bet join the McDonalds as they go to the races. Percy tells Maud that he wants to wait until Emily has got over Bernard before they fix a date. Mrs Baker tells Gail she blames the hospital for Mandy's death and wants an official enquiry. Gail agrees to be a witness for her, backing up her claim that the ward was understaffed. At the races Jim meets Major Ron Williams from his Army days. He allows Williams to believe that the Jaguar is his. Martin admits to Gail Mandy didn't receive the best treatment as the ward was so busy. Jim is stunned when Mike tells him that he's going to use him as the first driver for "Baldwin's Executive Taxi Service".
