Mike invites Alma to move in with him. Betty finds the gadgets in the new kitchen hard to operate. Rita avoids Ted, not being able to cope with his illness. Betty is upset when her hotpots aren't ready as she hasn't mastered the timer on the cooker. Mike is shocked when Alma refuses to move in with him until they are married. He thinks that the idea is pathetic. Alec lays into Betty about the hotpots. She is grateful when Vicky blames the cooker. Steve tells Vicky that the party was awful and arranges to take her out. Ted apologises to Rita for not telling her about his illness before. He tells her that he'll understand if she wants them to finish and promises to stay away until she's reached her decision.
