Rita is fed up at The Kabin on her own; no one has answered her advertisement for an assistant. Alan returns without Elsie. Rita takes on sixteen-year-old Christopher Cullen but isn't sure she's doing the right thing. Alan tells Lucille they're settling in Newcastle. He plans to sell the Canal Garage and give up the tenancy of No.11. Hilda considers giving up charring to become Rita's assistant to prove her worth to Trevor. Albert suggests the Barlows take out the tenancy on No.11. Chris makes Rita feel very uncomfortable. Albert makes Janet see that renting No.11 would give them time on their own. She tells Ken that she's not going to live in the Street. Alan tells Ken the house will be rented fully furnished. Chris makes advances to Rita when they close up for the night. She makes him realise it wouldn't work and he leaves for good. Janet is won round by the furniture and Ken makes plans to move Peter and Susan in.
