Pamela Mitchell tells the Barlows that she's leaving the Weatherfield Recorder and moving to Nottingham. Dennis Lawton offers Brian a price £2,000 lower than the asking price for the garage. Brian thinks it over. Stan asks Hilda to open a joint account so he can draw money out for himself but she refuses. Mike advises Brian to sell everything he owns before selling his business. The Ogdens go to a French restaurant, "La Parisienne". Hilda threatens to strangle Stan if he ruins the evening for her. The menu is in French so they don't know what to order. Pam recommends Ken sees Bob Statham, the Recorder 's owner. The Ogdens end up with melon and sea bass. Hilda is overjoyed when Stan tells her that he wouldn't swap her for any of the other diners. Gail tells Brian that Mike has the right idea - they should sell the house rather than the garage.
