Rita is amazed that Derek has proposed to Mavis. Debbie's exam results come through - two CSE 4's and two 5's and one unclassified - all failure results. Billy tells Fred that he's no longer needed at the Rovers and advises him to look for a job and a home. Fred accuses him of throwing him into the street after he's kept the pub going for Annie. Billy tells him that he can't afford to keep him on. Mavis fears that she's left it too late to marry and feels Derek may just want a replacement for his mother. Debbie tries to hide her results from Bill but he forces them out of her. He is furious with her poor results. She swears she's no good at exams but he feels she didn't revise. He tells her that she'll have to take the exams again but she refuses to return to school. Derek assumes Mavis wants to marry him and gives her an engagement ring. She gives it back to him when he tells her it was his mother's. She tells him that if she does agree to marry him she will never wear his mother's ring.
