Deirdre considers joining an evening class at the Community Centre. Elsie organises the refreshments for the party. Brian and Gail go to a used car lot run by Les Johnson where she is impressed by his knowledge. Alf has a brain scan and an electro-encephalograph and is given the all clear. He's put on tranquillisers. Gail feels sorry for Suzie being on her own and invites her to the disco with her and Brian. Ken feels old at the disco. Gail doesn't like it when Brian shows off his dancing. She makes him dance with Suzie and they start to dance wild. Alf tells Renee they're going to Benidorm next week. She is delighted. The dancers gather round Brian and Suzie's exhibition dance. Gail is not amused when he prefers dancing with Suzie to talking to her. She takes her engagement ring off and asks Deirdre to give it to Brian.
