Ken tells Deirdre it wouldn't be practical for them to have a baby. When she pursues the subject, Ken stuns Deirdre by telling her that he doesn't want another child. Stan feels guilty for not remembering Hilda's birthday and buys her a Valentine. Deirdre accuses Ken of marrying her under false pretences, as he'd agreed to have a child before they married. He feels he's too old to be a father again. She tells him that she feels cheated. Stan gets Alf to write the Valentine and asks him to post it through the door on the day, so Hilda won't know its from him. Wilf tells Elsie that he wants to leave his wife.
