Arthur is angry when he sees Den paying Tom cash in hand. Pauline says the reception can be at the community centre if all the guests pay £5 towards it, but Arthur insists it is his responsibility to pay for everything. Arthur later breaks down in tears, telling Pauline he is no use to anyone. Simon plays "Something Outta Nothing" to his bandmates - everyone apart from Harry likes it. Doctor Legg tells Dot he will get her a solicitor, Monty Kreitman, and advises her to plead not guilty and he will be a witness to get her off on medical grounds. Den considers ending his marriage to Angie but Willmott-Brown mentions that he thinks the landlady is the person who brings in the punters. Sue asks Mehmet if she could adopt a child from one of his relatives in Cyprus but he says it would not work.

Pauline sits downstairs in the middle of the night staring at the presents bought for Lofty and Michelle's wedding. Arthur joins her and Pauline tells him that she wants them to have a proper wedding reception at the community centre.

The next morning, Mary notices Dot sat in the Square gardens, and asks her if she is okay. Dot admits to Mary that she has stolen and is due in court in the afternoon. Mary reassures Dot that she will be okay, while Dot tells Mary she cannot remember stealing.

Kathy allows Ian and the band to practice at their flat in the evening whilst her and Pete go out, but Pete does not want them practicing in the flat. Simon plays with the synthesiser and works out a tune for his newly written song.

Doctor Legg sees Dot and tells her to plead not guilty. He says it will give them enough time to allow him to write up a witness report and get Dot off on medical grounds, as the menopause can sometimes cause women to act and behave differently.

Den is in a peaceful mood. Pete asks Den if he will let the band practice upstairs in the Vic as he does not want them playing at his flat, but Den says no.

Doctor Legg tells Ethel about what is wrong with Dot. Ethel feels terrible for not noticing something was wrong sooner.

Sue suggests to Mehmet that he and Guizin let her and Ali adopt one of their children so they can look after it. Mehmet tells Sue to stop being silly.

Arthur has a drink with Colin. He notices Den slip Tom £10 for his work and angrily confronts Den, saying that it should be him who is getting the money, not Tom.

Pauline calls a family meeting and tells Arthur, Lofty and Michelle that if all the guests pay £5 then they can have the wedding reception at the community centre. Arthur strongly disagrees with the idea and insists it is his responsibility to pay for everything.

Den makes a secret phone call and tells Lofty he must work the next day as he is going out on business.

Pauline cooks Arthur his favourite meal and as a result, goes hungry. Arthur breaks down telling Pauline he is no use to anyone.

The band practices at Kathy and Pete's flat.

Pauline goes to bed while Arthur sits downstairs, depressed.
