Jack gets a cheque for £600 from Vera's insurance. Phyllis fears that if Gail brings a young kid in to help with the sandwich round she'll be pushed out. Joanne Cresswell hints to Jenny that Alan is seeing another woman. Ken is horrified when Mike tells him he's dropping the libel case as Deirdre talked him out of it. Ken accuses Deirdre of making him look a fool and suspects Deirdre flirted with Mike to win him round. He tells her he'd rather pay out thousands than have her act like a tart. She is hurt that he thinks she cheapened herself. Jack promises Terry a bottle of whisky if he keeps the news of his cheque from Vera. He doesn't have a bank account so can't cash the cheque. Alec refuses to cash it for him. Gina goes after the job at the cafe but Phyllis tells her it's been taken. Gail hears about this and arranges to interview Gina. Vera discovers that Jack has received his compensation.
