Deirdre makes Tracy withdraw the £2,000 and lectures her on helping Doug break the law. Des offers Tommy's old clothes to Vera but she refuses to touch them. Raquel buys Des a drink and offers him a shoulder to cry on. Doug is disappointed when Deirdre gets Tracy to withdraw the money in a cheque. Deirdre tells him to stay away from her and her daughter from now on. Raquel gives herself to Des for the night to break his loneliness.
