Hilda is horrified to find that Stan and Eddie have painted orange lines in the Street. She makes them scrub the cobbles. Rita discovers that Mavis and Victor spent their nights in a Youth Hostel. Chalkie takes his bags to Alice Kirby but she tells him that he's too late as she's taken in another lodger. Ken chairs the protest meeting. Pamela Mitchell from the Weatherfield Recorder attends the meeting and tells Mike she'd like to do a piece on the disco. He agrees. Phyllis thinks it's hysterical that Alice doesn't want Chalkie anymore. Annie urges the residents to oppose the disco on moral grounds. Mike and Alec Yardley don't deny they're in the venture for money but claim they will provide a service to the community. Phyllis tells Chalkie that she'll take him in but he refuses. Alf swears the Council is impartial but no one believes him. The meeting ends in uproar as Mrs Harper accuses Alf of receiving back-handers.
