Zara moans when she gets a call from one of the mothers at Joe’s school inviting her out for a ‘getting-to-know-you’ session. Emma overhears and thinks Zara’s criticism is a little harsh. Emma sees Zara in the staff room and tries to ask her about the other parents at Joe’s school, but the two women end up bickering.

Zara quite likes the idea of this, and Emma makes a joke that leaves Zara thinking.
