Episode Summary

Will You Be Happy Tomorrow?
Julie's pregnancy is making her feel fat and ugly. Tim is reassuring and pleasant to her. He even calls her 'babe'. When Julie goes for her check-up she even finds herself giving Tim's name as her partner and signs them both up for 'baby txt', an innovative scheme where parents are sent txts of their baby's development. In a vulnerable moment Julie kisses Tim. She feels terrible when Tim rejects her. He seems angry and repulsed by her coming on to him. Embarrassed, Julie goes to his work to apologise and discovers that Tim no longer works there. In fact he hasn't worked there for some time. She also learns that his behaviour at work had been odd, even, at times, sinister. James, fearing the loss of both the Old Monk and spirituality in general, seeks advice from his mate Bazza, who surprisingly seems very wise, though he refuses to take any credit for his wisdom, insisting 'its just the piss talking, mate'. Julie delivers the Old Monk's birthday cake and both Monks treat her, and more particularly her baby, with reverence. The Old monk dies. Tina catches Sam out at his old tricks. Convinced the money is the source of all her unhappiness, she throws it away. All of it. When she confronts Sam with his infidelity he doesn't even try and deny it. She has, after all, forgiven him in the past. But then Tina tells him she has thrown away the money. And now she's moving on from him too. William is not keen on having dinner with Lindy and her TV friends. They argue over whose job is more important. William returns from watching a 30-year-old patient die to the dinner party with Lindy and her friends. William accuses them all of being self-obsessed and facile. He accuses Lindy of being nothing more than a porn star. Needless to say, Lindy isn't too impressed with this description of her work.moreless
