Toyah threatens to run away again if her parents stop her seeing Dobber. Liz is upset that Jim is still his old aggressive self. She tells Michael Wall that she's been kidding herself; Jim isn't the man she wants, mobile or paralysed. Maxine worries when Audrey advertises for a trainee at the salon. Toyah plays truant to be with Dobber. Spider tells horrified Alma about Anne's plan to set her up. Alma suggests that he gets Anne to show him the letter whilst under the surveillance camera. Dobber demands Toyah steals £40 from the cafe so they can have a night out. She doesn't want to but is eager to please him. Anne shows Spider the letter and is picked up by the security camera. Alma tries to take the tape but is interrupted by the security guard. Toyah takes money from Janice to pay for a lesson with Ken but instead goes out with Dobber. He's disgusted at so little money so she promises more when she gets paid. Spider is disappointed that Alma couldn't get the tape. Maxine fears that Audrey intends to sack her.
