Terry and Kevin didn't enjoy their blind dates as the girls brought along a friend. Knowing he needs a reference, Bill tries to make the peace with Alf. He asks for a reference but Alf refuses. Alf tells Rita that she's stupid to lend a stranger money. She tells him that it's her business and nothing to do with him. She accuses him of being petty by not giving Bill a reference. Terry realises Curly is as boring as the odd girl he dated and persuades him to date her himself to get her off his back. Curly jumps at the chance. Kath Goodwin flirts with Fred and he employs her for the full week. Alf gives Bill a reference - Bill thanks him.
