Mike thinks that Ken only wants Susan at No.1 so that he can manipulate her. Terry tells Curly that he's had enough of working all morning just to give Curly half the profits. Alan gets a week's work in Manchester and plans to use the time to see more of Jenny. He asks Rita to come for a meal with Jenny and him. He pleases Jenny by telling her that he is planning to be transferred to Manchester and will buy them somewhere to live. Jenny has band practice so can't go for the meal so Rita and Alan go alone. Curly gets annoyed at work when he is passed over for promotion. Susan considers returning to work for Ken at the Weatherfield Recorder. After their meal, Alan is too tired to drive back to Leeds so Rita lets him sleep on the sofa.
