Annie is intrigued by Mavis's tale of the miraculous Mr. Garfield. When he is forced to cover up for Ray to Deirdre, Len explodes and refuses to do it again. Mavis is thrilled when Mr. Garfield checks up on her. Ray takes Janice out after a week of not seeing her. Garfield gives Mavis a massage. Annie asks her to ask him to call on her. Ena tells Bet that Garfield isn't a specialist but a porter. As Ray has taken the van, Rita can't get to a singing engagement in Warrington. She phones the Legion - where Ray has said he'll be playing in a snooker game. They discover that there's no snooker on and Ray isn't there.
