Martin tells Nicky that he wants him to repay the money at the rate of 50p a week. Bet starts to pack and becomes nostalgic about past customers and friends. Alec is rushed, sorting all his accounts and books out. Betty feels that Bet doesn't care what happens to the staff and tells her that she's disappointed in her. Paula tells Andy that she's decided to go to Manchester University, not Sheffield and has been offered a place. She tells him that she's too young to settle down and wants to meet new friends. He is upset and feels a mug for loving her. Bet is pleased when the brewery value the Rovers at £25,000; less than Alec wanted. She is stunned when Alec calmly accepts the offer, saying that the money isn't important. Bet realises she belongs at the Rovers and can't leave.
