Tricia is sent chocolates by an admirer. The womenfolk hold a meeting to talk about how to catch - and keep - a man. Bet urges them to be organised for Leap Year. Mavis tells them that if historically the man turned the woman down he was fined £1. The residents prepare for a party and a sing-song to mark the New Year. A sad Concepta tells Annie she knows Sean sleeps around but he is kind to her when he comes back from his "jaunts" and he's a kind father to Christopher and Lucille. He also told Concepta himself about Bet and she knows that Bet didn't initiate anything; she's just not letting Bet know she knows. A furious Tricia is told by Ray that he sent the chocolates as a joke. Ena entertains on the piano and Ray lets the New Year in.
