Alf, Fred, Mavis and Renee set off on their fishing trip. Deirdre refuses to listen to Ray over the christening. A hungry Suzie arranges a date between Ted Brownlow and Elsie hoping he'll bring food with him. Renee falls in the river. Mavis tries to rescue her and is pulled into the water, then Fred tries to retrieve his rod and also falls in. Ted arrives and takes Elsie alone out for Sunday lunch. Suzie is stunned. Reverend Copley, the vicar of St Luke's, tells Deirdre he won't baptise Tracy because the Langtons don't go to church.
