Mavis is pleased that she's engaged. Derek takes her to a jeweller's to choose a ring. Debbie looks for a job but she's not qualified for anything. She discovers that Gail is looking for a waitress in the cafe and is taken on. Bill doesn't like the idea of her working in a cafe. Billy tells Fred he realises that he does owe him, he tells him he can take as long as he wants to find a job and he'll give him an extra two weeks' pay. Gail promises Bill that she'll keep an eye on Debbie at the cafe. Billy discovers from an old mate that there's a way he won't have to pay compensation to Fred.
