Mark is busy collecting the relevant documents for his family's imminent emigration to Australia. Rory and Dino have found the perfect apartment in Kilbride.

Agnes tries to hold her tongue, but it's quite obvious she thinks Professor Thomas Clowne isn't good enough for her daughter.

Against her better judgement, Agnes gives Buster the chance to quote for the job of upgrading her kitchen. However, when the draughtsman turns up to measure the kitchen and isn't quite up to the job, Mrs Brown quickly regrets the decision. Will she ever have the new kitchen she desires?
