She feels she's protecting Brian's memory. Alma thinks she's blown her chances with Ken by going on about about Mike. Audrey is shocked when Ken tells her that Alma entertained him in her flat. Alec is amazed by the grandeur of Vicky's school. He urges her to make influential friends. The head, Dr Carr, assures the Gilroys that Vicky will be well looked after. Alec pays the £2,800 school fee and tries to build himself up by describing the Rovers as hotel-cum-hostelry but Bet keeps knocking him down. Bet drags Alec away when he wrongly assumes Dr Carr to be a medical doctor. Vicky says goodbye to the Gilroys. Mavis is horrified when Frank Worral, a dog breeder, looks over No.6. Ivy tells Don she's not going to the wedding. Don wonders if her attitude extends to her marriage and he's only ever been a substitute for Bert. Ivy denies it.
