Roy worries that Deirdre is brooding too much and fears that she may have a breakdown. Harvey Nuttall shows Jack around his brewery and pampers him. Jack relishes every moment. Steve works all weekend, telling Vicky that he's trying to earn money so he's not dependent on her. Vicky suggests a dinner party for Jim's 40th but Steve doesn't like the sound of it. Deirdre gets annoyed when Roy pesters her over how she's feeling. She shuts herself away in her flat. Vera lays on a buffet for Daniel's christening tea. "Daniel Albert" is christened in a Victorian gown with Brian and Alison Dunkley as godparents. Jack starts serving Nuttall's ales and is pleased by the success of "The Pledgebuster". Ken is annoyed by Brian's attitude in belittling the street and the residents. Reg and Curly are asked to take part in an identity parade to help catch the Red Rec Flasher. The suspect objects to Curly as he doesn't look much like him and Curly leaves. Reg is horrified when the witness picks him out of the parade.
