Ray finds out that the mother's name is Alison. He tells a disapproving Jerry that he doesn't know any Alisons. Michael Ryan refuses to be tempted by Deirdre - he's keeping himself pure for his girlfriend, Mary. Stan, Tommy and Michael go to the races in a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce. Alison Wright meets Ray and tells him they met at a party when he was drunk. She tells him that he told her to look him up if she was in trouble - now she's left the father and needs his help as they're homeless. Stan, Tommy and Michael have a picnic in the country on the way back from the races. Tommy persuades the chauffeur, Sandy Pirie, to have a drink so Stan drives the Rolls the rest of the way. Ken tells Rita he doesn't want Janet back and he agrees with her that she shouldn't be made to be a mother to the twins. The Rolls is pulled over by the police and Stan and is breathalysed by P.C. Blakey. Alison and baby Jonathan move into No.9.
