Mike takes Sandra Stubbs on to clean his flat. Alan talks Alec into having a burglar alarm fitted and gives him an estimate. Don offers to decorate No.5 for Ivy. Percy barricades himself inside his flat. Deirdre talks him into negotiations. Deirdre tells him she's managed to get him a flat in Rosamund Street. Ivy tells Don that today would have been her thirty-first wedding anniversary. She tells him the memory doesn't hurt anymore.
