Joe and Maria try and get a younger, hip clientele in the pub, which Helen sees as an ideal opportunity to market some ice cream.

Further details

Helen has to market an incredibly tasty ice cream, but is struggling with the name - Mr Coldy Fresh! She asks for as many samples as she can get so she can try and work out the best way to market it (and eat it!)
Moira wants Patrick's help when she starts an open university degree course, but bizarrely finds help in Billy. After lending her his DVD player, he also goes through some questions with her. Billy teaches Moira the essential trick to an English degree - watching the film of the book!
Joe and Maria think their pub has turned into an old man's pub, so they attempt to invigorate it and turn it into a young and trendy place. However, Joe is concerned about the problems with drugs so insists on searching everyone on arrival.
Patrick is surprised to find Helen at home and they scare Moira off with their arguing! Despite his reservations, even he is softened by the ice cream. Helen tries out her ice cream on the younger clientele in the pub. She gets a surprise at home when Patrick cooks her a meal to say sorry.
