Deirdre threatens not to live at No.1 if Tracy has to sleep downstairs. Stan pays £3 for a ticket to the Sports and Social Club stag night. Ken feels he can't win as he tries to do his best for everyone. Eddie makes Albert see that he can't expect Tracy to sleep downstairs and points out he'd have privacy in the front parlour. The Faircloughs go to the adoption society. They say they'd like a five-year old and say a child would be well-loved by them. Albert tells Ken that he's moving into the parlour but wants it decorating. The adoption officer, Mrs Ramsden, tells the Faircloughs that they are too old to adopt. Rita breaks down saying she wants a child. They are refused adoption despite Rita's pleas. Stan and Eddie go to the Social Club. Deirdre tells Ken that she wants a church wedding with Tracy as bridesmaid. They set the date for 27th July. Rita refuses to believe she's too old to be a mother. She refuses to give up.
