Vera is furious when Jack spends the morning in the Rovers rather than cleaning windows. She throws him out of the pub. Gordon Lewis arrives to take over the Rovers. Percy doesn't approve of Elaine going to London with Bill. Bill promises that he won't hurt Elaine; he's too fond of her. Jack has a rotten day cleaning windows; he's threatened by another cleaner and only earns £6. Bill and Elaine leave for London. Mavis finds out from Bet that she no longer sees Tony and encourages Rita to go out with him. Bet is horrified to hear that Gordon wants to take over the licence of the Rovers. She pushes Betty to apply for the licence herself.
