Annie tells Hilda she won't tell anyone about Stan's disappearance. Bet refuses to crawl to Annie to secure her job. Betty fears she'll never work again. Stan arrives at Norman Crabtree's chip shop in Oakhill. Annie refuses to take Betty and Bet back. Hilda contacts the Salvation Army. Stan tells Norman and assistant Edie Blundell he's been hitching all over the country. Edie feels sorry for him. He asks Norman if he can stay with him. Eddie returns to No.13 from staying in Liverpool. Hilda tells him he can't stay with her as Stan is away. Gail starts work at the Rovers. Bet and Betty, as customers, give her the runaround, ordering cocktails which Annie has to instruct her on how to make up. Norman resents the way Stan lounges around the shop, eating the profits and entertaining Edie to a drink. Stan phones the Rovers to tell Hilda he's alright. The residents begin to realise Stan has left her.
