Alice, Lily and Phoebe go bowling. Phoebe and Lily moan about their respective occupations. Phoebe doesn’t feel challenged and Lily is bored to the back teeth with kitchen sales. The mood deflates when Phoebe unthinkingly asks Alice about her problems. To their horror, Alice points out a new bar but then explains it’s a bubble tea bar. Alice thanks Phoebe and Lily for helping her get away from Ambridge for the evening. Alice confesses she’s glad she doesn’t have a job at Home Farm and is considering a return to engineering. Lily divulges that she’s starting a course in rural estate management while Phoebe has no plans; she was asked the same by university friends before Christmas and had nothing to share.
Kenton and Jolene are about to give up hope of anyone turning up to share ideas for a Valentine’s event when Leonard turns up. He pitches his Living Board Game concept. They struggle to see the main aim of the game and get hung up on the finer details. Losing his patience, Kenton thanks Leonard for coming but rules out his idea.
Jazzer has to admit to Tracy he’s lost the book she gave him for help with his accounting, but he’s bought another. Not that he’s recorded much in it so far. Tracy points out The Bull are offering a free ticket for Valentine’s to whoever comes up with the best event idea. Jazzer’s keen to give it a go; he’s sure he and Tracy will come up with an idea they can’t refuse.
