Doctor Legg's car is stolen and he berates DS Quick for doing nothing about it and says the crime rate did not drop since he arrived. DS Quick rants about the locals before leaving permanently. Mehmet asks Ian and Simon for advice on how to win Mary round. Sharon tells Den that Arthur should be paying for her bridesmaid's dress and he should not get involved in the wedding. Arthur accuses Pauline of having an affair with her art teacher when she shows an interest in going to an art exhibition for the first time and forbids her from going, but she goes anyway. Mehmet invites Ali to late night poker and the next day, WPC Howard visits Sue, saying Ali may know something about Doctor Legg's stolen car.

Ali and Mehmet return from their night out, unaware that Sue has been sat in the living room in the dark waiting for them. Ali blames Sue for not being pregnant and she is hurt. In the morning, Sue refuses to talk to Ali.

Andy tells Debbie she was right to leave the bank.

Doctor Legg insists that Ethel receives compensation off of him for the recent burglary. She is grateful for his kind actions.

DS Quick tells Ali that he is leaving the force.

Ethel tells Kathy and Simon about her compensation from Doctor Legg. Kathy tells her to bank it but Ethel says she does not have a bank account, so Simon tells her to give it to someone else with a bank account to cash it in for her. Den breaks up the conversation and Kathy has a quiet word with Simon afterwards, asking if he has a bank account.

Dot visits Doctor Legg worrying about her menopause. Following their appointment Doctor Legg leaves the surgery to visit a patient but finds his car has been stolen.

DS Quick goes to the Vic to share the news he is leaving.

Ethel asks Simon if he has a bank account and Simon assumes her and Kathy are up to something.

Ian tells Simon that the band are meeting to decide on a name, which he finds unfair as he will not be present at the meeting.
