Mike calls Hazel Lightfoot in a bid to track Jackie down but is unable to find her. Ivy and Vera attend the Bettabuy quiz night leaving the evening free for Don and Jack to hold their card game. Don tells Ivy he's going out drinking with Jack. Phil is forced to sell some of his machines. Deirdre lends him all of her money - £200 - to get his Mercedes repaired. Rita is horrified to discover that Reg is interested in buying No.3. Sandra Arden phones Alec and tells him that his ex-wife Joyce has just died. Steph is amused when architect Simon Beatty, a customer at work, flirts with her. He leaves her his card. Mike finds Ralph Dobson installed in his office administering the takeover. Dobson refuses to tell Mike where Jackie is and threatens him with security if he doesn't leave. Mike promises him a fight. Alec is shocked by Joyce's death and worries about his own health. Bet tells him that he should be thinking about Sandra. Alec decides not to attend the funeral and comforts Sandra when she breaks down. Phil, Des, Don, Jim and Jack play poker in the factory unit. Steph is annoyed that Des would rather play cards than take her out and gives Simon a call. Phil urges the others to bet big but they're careful. He annoys Don by insinuating that he's out of his league. Don matches Phil's £200 stake and they start adding markers. Jack and Jim try to stop Don, who pays to see Phil. Phil has a full house but Don wins with four of a kind. He takes Phil's £200; playing it cool, Phil promises the other £450 in the morning.
