Ray completes his plans for modernising No.5 but Deirdre doesn't want the house. He thinks it's a snip at £2,500 but she refuses to look at the plans. Rita takes a fancy to Mike Baldwin and flirts with him. Norman Crabtree threatens to throw Stan out unless Hilda takes him back. She agrees to take him back without an apology. Stan refuses to return until she has apologised to him. Mike asks Bet out, telling her that he has a wife in London but is in the North during the week. The residents advise Deirdre to take No.5. She looks at the plans and likes them. She agrees to buying the house. Ray is delighted. Stan asks Eddie to get some of his clothes for him. Hilda dresses up for Stan's return and is upset when Eddie tells her he's not coming back; he's being looked after by Edie. Ray is horrified to find someone else has beat him to it and bought No.5.
