Alf’s settling in at the Bull, and getting to know Toby. When Jill arrives it’s a great opportunity for Alf to accept a whisky chaser courtesy of Leonard as introductions are made. Alf reckons Joe kept the pub going; others are quick to point out that whilst Joe was a regular, he rarely seemed to pay for his own drinks. The ‘one for Joe’ campaign behind the bar is going well. Jill explains to Leonard that Apple Day won’t be observed this year as the Grundys are just too busy with arrangements for Joe. Alf continues to stir up gossip as he asserts to shocked Jill that there’s something between Oliver and Tracy.
Rex has his pigs almost ready for slaughter, but they’re too big for Neil’s trailer. David suggests Rex needs to invest in one of his own. Toby finds Rex later preparing to sell his collection of rugby treasures to raise the money for a trailer. Toby thinks this is sad; couldn’t he ask their dad for a loan? But Rex is determined to be independent.
Jill and David reminisce over Joe’s antics, swapping anecdotes, laughing and good naturedly sparring over whether Joe was a good or a bad egg. Leonard feels that Joe was a likeable fellow, and they all agree that whilst he wasn’t perfect, they’ll miss Joe dreadfully. Show less
