Pat and Frank catch up on old times. Frank reveals he had another child about five years ago, and her birth led to the early and unexpected death of his wife. He asks Pat to consider getting back together and invites her to a hotel to 'put it to the test', but Pat says no to both offers. Pauline and Derek get to know each other. Ethel, Dot and the rest of the team go on a river trip. Tina's parents, aghast at her living situation make her return home to Ilford with them.
