Rita is hurt that Mavis is looking for another job. Terry returns to Weatherfield, getting Don to drive him to Rosamund Street where he runs off without paying him. Vera is thrilled that Terry is back. Jack is suspicious, thinking he must be after something. Shirley is annoyed when Curly spends all Bank Holiday taking Lucy to the fair.
