Will calls to the Nashes to see Gypsy. Gypsy asks him has he taken his breakfast. Will replies he hasn’t; she suggests they have something she’s looking forward to: a champagne breakfast. Joel takes the car to Dave’s garage. Dave asks Joel about the problems with the car. Natalie is out for a jog on the road, when she passes a car, and is surprised to find Joel driving it.
