The squat is flooded with water, abruptly waking Ricky and Sam. Pauline has a game of darts with Pete at the Vic, determined to celebrate their birthday in style and not let Arthur get to her. Pat visits Lorraine in hospital.

Arthur plans a surprise meal at a restaurant for Pauline for her birthday, but she thinks he has forgotten her birthday and is annoyed.

Phil and Anne get on well the next morning.

Pat has second thoughts about going to meet Lorraine and wants her to tell her what she has to say over the phone, but Lorraine refuses to, demanding she visits her in hospital.

Frank meets with Christine, the accountant he laid off last year. She immediately agrees to put in an appeal and suggests he arranges an overdraft of £4,000 to pay some of the debts upfront, as well as liquidising his assets. He considers selling his car and Christine encourages him to, telling him to use the money to pay the debtors upfront.

Dot helps Ricky mop the floor of the squat, while Sam cries when she gets a moment alone.

Lorraine asks Pat to take care of her daughter, Mandy, whilst she is recovering as she does not want her to go into care.

Arthur dresses up ready for the meal but is disappointed when Pauline does not return home.

Sam visits Frank and asks him for water. He vents about his problems to her and then gives her the water, telling her he will help them out when they need it.

Pauline finally returns home and learns Arthur planned a surprise for her. She feels guilty and dresses up to go out, but Pete tells Arthur that they have already eaten, so Arthur cancels the taxi and they agree to spend the evening in.

Frank is speechless when Pat turns up at the B&B with Mandy and explains she is staying for a few weeks.
