Bet hates looking after the shop and Alf can't stand the thought of her ruining his trade. Bert gets a letter from work saying that his sick pay is going to halved. He feels that he's never going to get better. Bet tries to get Alf on his feet but he isn't up to moving. She asks Jack to help her to return to the Rovers, promising gratitude. He tells her that he'll pull the "wrong change" number on Suzie. When he sees Suzie he changes his mind and chats her up. Brian worries about Bert's illness. Fred tries to get time off to take Suzie to Stockport but Annie refuses. Jack takes her in his cab, for free. The Council offers Phyllis a flat on Brook Drive. She doesn't like it as it's on the fifth floor. She asks Chalkie if she could move in with him. He refuses, telling her that he has to sell the house as Bob needs the money. Bet is furious to discover that Jack has taken Suzie out instead of helping her.
