Carmel goes to look at Tony's flat as she has to move within three weeks, but it's too expensive. Willmott-Brown expresses interest in moving to the Square after handing his notice in to the brewery with plans to open a pub of his own. The pressure mounts on Arthur as more and more people start asking for their Christmas Club money.

Hannah asks Colin to move his bike from the hall of the flats as they are still trying to sell one of the flats.

Angie and Pat reminisce about the old days together, which gets on Simon's nerves. Sharon walks into the bar all dressed up and ready for the job centre. Angie disapproves of Sharon going for a job at the job centre as she feels her education is more important, but Sharon does not listen to her.

Pat tries to talk to Simon about his love life but has no success.

Pauline gets increasingly stressed in the launderette when Tom bashes one of the machines because it is not working. He then tells Pauline he wants his Christmas club money back as he wants to buy his own machine.

Carmel tells Doctor Legg that Arthur is in some sort of depression and the family are obsessing over money. Doctor Legg worries mostly about Pauline's mental health, telling Carmel that she is the linchpin of the family.

Sharon gets herself hired stacking shelves with a shop company, who will also teach her how business works.

Simon tries talking to Debbie but she tells him she wants to be on her own.

Pat proves popular behind the bar when she shows cleavage and flirts with the male customers, although she is rebuked by James for smoking whilst working behind the food bar. Pete tries to convince Den to stop Pat working at the Vic, but when Den says she is staying as she makes Angie happy, Pete decides to boycott the Vic.

Carmel looks at one of Tony's flats and is downbeat when she realises she cannot afford anything. Tony flirts with Carmel and offers to give her a Trinidadian necklace he made to her preferred size. Once she has gone, Kelvin tells him that ladies like Carmel are more interested in younger men.
