Fred keeps the greyhound in the Rovers' cellar. He, Alf and Terry can't believe they spent £30 when drunk on the dog. Fred tries to keep Annie away from the cellar. Ray does the pram up in the Yard as a surprise for Deirdre. Annie finds the dog in the cellar and releases it, thinking it fell through the trap door. The dog runs away. Deirdre gives the pram to young Darren Briscoe to carry round his bonfire wood in. Terry is so hung-over he can't remember buying the dog. Renee puts up official notices that she is applying for a drinks licence. Sylvia Matthews rings Gail and tells her that she's reconsidered her sacking and that she can keep her job. Ray is furious that Deirdre gave the pram away while she is furious that he wanted it for their child. Albert buys dog food from Renee who worries that he's hard up.
