Gail throws herself at Roger Floriet but their intimate moments are ruined by Suzie. Roger can't decide which one of them to invite to France. Maurice Allen and Gary Hankins work at the Bishops' house when they should be at the Rovers. Ray sees them and is furious. He phones the Brewery and reports them for moonlighting. Maurice and Gary are sacked by the Brewery. Maurice goes for Ray but Len stops him. Maurice swears to get even with Ray. Roger can't choose between Suzie and Gail so he invites them both. The police tell Renee that Eric and Les Fox have been caught. Roger returns home to Lyon. The Brewery draymen go out on strike over Maurice's sacking, and the Rovers' cellar is nearly out of beer.
