The women laze around on their holiday in Majorca. Deirdre is pursued by Brian Dodds. Emily is eaten by mosquitoes. Bet picks up a property developer, Martin Barrett. Vera doesn't like it when Tricia flirts with Tony Bolton. His father and storeman at the warehouse, Fred Bolton, is pleased that his son has started at the warehouse with him. There's a hold up in the delivery and he has to store a load of leather and suede jackets in the store. Tony is interested and tells a friend Paul Meggitt. To the girls' surprise, Mavis falls for a handsome Spaniard called Pedro. Granny invites Ernie for a meal. Tony steals Fred's store key and gets a copy cut. Ernie and Stan go to an Italian for dinner. Ernie tells Granny he has to work late. Mavis is delighted when Pedro kisses her.
