Alec fears that the health and safety people will close the pub if a customer sees it. Mike makes Emily see that she'll have to go to court as his witness. Emily tells Ken she resents him using their friendship to get back at Mike. Curly agrees to Raquel staying at No.7. Angie is less than thrilled. Harry Norton tells Alec that the spider is worth £500.
