Curly tries to build up courage to ask Sharon out. Elsie gets a barmaid's job at the Tropicana pub. Bet warns her that the pub is a dive. Curly travels to Heaton Park and lets two of Jack's pigeons loose. He finds one of them, Jimmy, has died on the journey. Fred is furious that his pigeon has died. He puts the dead bird into the coop and declares he's won the bet as it's first home. Bet, as holder of the bet money, agrees that Fred has won and gives him the £20. Elsie asks Mike if she can withdraw her notice but he tells her it wouldn't be a good idea; she obviously doesn't fit in at the factory. Rita finds Mrs Proctor's completed job in Len's files. Rita phones her again but has the phone slammed down once more.
