Hilda realises that it's forty years since she met Stan and their wedding anniversary is next week. Percy is interested to discover Mavis has a female budgie. He tells her that his budgie is called Randy and he wants them to meet. The Ogdens go for Stan's birth certificate so he can get a passport for a holiday. Hilda uses her cash card for the first time. She is annoyed to discover that Stan knows her secret number: 5331. Eddie looks over a semi on Mere Avenue. Stan's birth certificate shows that he was born in 1919, making him sixty-four instead of sixty-one. He is shocked but delighted to discover he'll get his pension and bus pass next year.
