Mavis feels put upon by the Faircloughs. Derek advises her to use Auntie Edie's money as a deposit on a house of her own. They go house hunting. Suzie stands Mike up and is annoyed that Gail didn't tell her about the bet. Mavis goes to the building society to see if she could get a mortgage. Eddie tries to sell turkeys for Christmas.
