Ethel has started collecting odd coins she finds on the floor while cleaning at the Vic. Mary is arrested and taken to the Magistrate's Court for none payment of debt. Tony decides he's going to move back home to Trinidad and buys his flight ticket that afternoon. He tells Colin his plan but asks him not to tell Kelvin yet.

Tony stares at Number 3 from outside.

Magda tells Den she know some people who would be interested in buying Roly. Pat overhears the conversation.

Mary is visited by Mr Atkinson again, who arrests her for not paying her fine. Tom tells Dot about Mary's arrest and she instantly gossips to Sue.

Colin notices Barry seems sad and tries to cheer him up.

Ray and Tel believe Angie is married to James, which she finds amusing.

Ian tells Pauline that Sue is rabbiting on about the money her and Ali are owed.

Ethel tells Doctor Legg she wants her flat back.

Tony tells Colin that he built Number 3 and has fond memories of it, as well as how much he misses Hannah.

Angie tells James about the builders' impression of them - James laughs it off and then tells Angie about his former wife and how still thinks about her.

Pauline invites Uncle round to see her. She gives him some of her rings in exchange for cash and cries, having pawned the last of her precious belongings.

Sue and Tom both talk about the leniency of Arthur's prison sentence which annoys Ian. Pauline gives Sue the cash her and Ali are owed from the Christmas club to shut her up. Tom goes to chase Pauline for his money but is stopped by Ian.

Pauline visits Mary and tells her she is worried about her as she does not want to see her end up in prison. She tells Mary she will be there for her when she gets Annie back.

Angie learns from Pat that Den has sold Roly and furiously goes to see him. Den tells her he has not sold Roly and never would.

Colin shows Tony a bundle of books he has borrowed from the library to help him and Barry find a common interest. Tony shows Colin a ticket he has on him - it is for a flight back to Trinidad.
