Roger fumes about going to Friday night dinner at the Feldman's. Delia delights in the fact that Pat will look so out of place next to Adam that Nancy won't be able to help but notice.  Adam arrives at the Feldman's and is honored when Beryl requests that he take Dave's place and say the traditional prayers before and during dinner.  On the dragger, the pleasure that Siobhan is experiencing out to sea comes to an abrupt halt when she learns from Joe that the boat will not return to shore for three days.  At dinner, Pat arrives late and is flustered when he realizes that they started without him.  Pat is further uncomfortable when he responds to the prayer at the wrong time and he notices that Adam is more than comfortable in Dave's place.  Delia manages to make the evening more difficult for Pat by mentioning their prior marriage and is quieted by both Roger and Nancy.  Joe apologizes to Siobhan about fooling her into taking the trip and tries to persuade her to accept the situation and enjoy it - something that Siobhan refuses to do.  Alone in the dining room, Adam asks Pat some pointed questions about religion and his relationship with Nancy and clearly does not agree with the answers that he receives.
