Annie's speech goes down well. Ena cooks a thank-you meal for Jerry, Tricia and Gail. Gordon doesn't remember telling Sophie about Betty being his mother and apologises to Betty. Annie wants to have a musical night at the Rovers. Albert tells Annie that he's disgusted with Ken for turning down the Community Development Officer position in favour of driving taxis. Annie tells Ken that she always thought highly of him and hates seeing his talents wasted - he should have a proper job. He tells her that he's applied for the Centre job. She's annoyed that he didn't tell her right away. Deirdre convinces Ray that they need a holiday. Bet phones Gordon to warn him about Sophie being in the Rovers, where she's been stood up by him. Albert goes to Ena's to be fed. Ken doesn't go to work, citing depression. Gordon tells Betty he'll get rid of Sophie. Betty's fears come true when Sophie tells the drinkers that Betty is Gordon's mother.

Notable dialogueEdit

Annie Walker: "Speeches are made to be delivered, not written down. Now, with all due deference to Kenneth's words, they could have fallen flat with a less experienced speaker. Words and music dear, as a famous composer once remarked - I forget his name - give me sopranos who can make my notes their own."


Ken Barlow: "That's the trouble round here, everybody's far too familiar and I'm just fed up with familiarity."
