Romance soon drops off the agenda though as Leo loses his nerve when confronted with hard evidence of Judy's former life. Judy is devastated by his change of heart and the evening ends disastrously.

When Pam and Tony return from their trip they find a very depressed Leo who tells them that his relationship is over. But, following a tender heart to heart with his Dad, Leo realises that he really does love Judy and he goes to find her to try and make amends. Meantime, James puts his talent for mimicry to good use.
