Sally doesn't like spending the day at No.8. Bet shows Vicky how to pull a pint from the pump. Alec is annoyed and accuses Bet of dragging her up like a barmaid. He leaves for Southampton. Steve enjoys it when Susie Johnson, a girl from school, flirts with him. Gail shouts at Steve for spending his time with Susie instead of helping at the cafe. Sally struggles looking after Nicky and Sarah Louise during the holidays. She can't control Nicky and he smashes a table lamp with a ball. Vicky cooks Steve a meal at No.11. He assures her that Susie is just a friend - she was the school slag. Sally thinks Gail feels she lets Nicky walk all over her. Curly shows Kimberley his house. She is impressed. She agrees to go to the Bettabuy dance with him but is horrified to discover that Curly has a female lodger.
