The Langtons move into No.5. Deirdre makes Ray carry her over the threshold. Ken returns from staying with Dave Robbins. Mavis tells Len she doesn't want to resign. Vince Denton tells Ken that Janet Barlow had £7,520 of his in a building society and he wants it back. He tells Ken the money was a tax dodge. Ken says he can have it - if he can prove it's his. Ernie gives Rita a going-away present; he's transposed all her song arrangements. Ken discovers that £1,500 of the money was Janet's. He doesn't trust Denton about the rest. Rita packs. Len accuses her of going to spite him. He tells her that he'll modernise No.9 for her and she can give up work. She tells him she's going to Tenerife. The residents decide Rita needs a farewell party.
