Gail leaves hospital with Sarah Louise. Selling door-to-door in Cromwell Street, Terry meets Dulcie Froggatt. She takes a shine to him and invites him in. He can't believe his luck. Mavis is annoyed to find that Alan has talked Rita into shutting down the record section in favour of a video library. She feels that Alan is taking over and taking her for granted. She summons Derek and tells him that she needs his help to deal with Alan; he's the man in her life and she has nobody else to turn to.
