What are you sniggering for? Think it's funny I suppose because I tell the truth for once.
Jo Armitage: The truth?
Jake: That I'm capable of fancying somebody else. I'm a perfectly normal man and I'm capable of fancying somebody else.
After Jake returns from his trip with presents for the children, he and Jo are sitting on a couch and she moves closer to him. A shadow of a crew member's head can be seen quickly moving on and off Jo's skirt.
