Rita gets upset on the third anniversary of Len's death. Bet hears from Sam that Alec has been sacked by the brewery. When Jack tells her that Alec is taking her for a mug, she is furious. Alec tells Bet he wasn't sacked - the brewery didn't like him spending all his time running his theatrical agency. Jenny asks Martin to help her write some lyrics for a school music project. He isn't very keen. Cheryl Crossley shows Mike some of her sketches and designs. He is impressed. Jenny dresses up, hoping Martin will like her. He feels uncomfortable. She asks him to take her out but he feels she's too young. Her feelings are hurt. Alec calls on Bet late at night and gives her a gold lighter as a token of his affection. He thanks her for being a pal. She is puzzled by the gesture.
