Irma tells Hilda she can't tell her how she feels. Dave tells Elsie that Stan signed over the deeds to No.13 for the £600. The editor of the Gazette tells Stan to keep the donated money. Irma tells Ken the crash was her fault. He rows with her. Stan decides to pay Dave back the £600. Mrs Bright turns up and tells Dickie that Audrey is with her. Dickie tells her about Ray. Stan wants to help Irma with the money. Mrs Bright promises Audrey's return but she is not on the Preston train.
Ken Barlow (to Irma Barlow): "You can only live for yourself. Because that's all you're capable of. Believe me, when you got married, I thought you were wrong for Dave. But it goes far deeper than that, now I know. You'd be wrong for anybody! If you have to spend the rest of your life alone, then that's the best way for you, it's the only way you know how! You've got two graves to prove it. That brands you Irma. That brands you for life!"
