Eddie Ramsden asks Tina out. Alec refuses to buy strips for the lads. Robert Prescott apologises to Mike for his rudeness. Mavis grows worried about Rita's whereabouts. Jenny feels she's just gone on holiday. Alec has a Rovers' strip printed very cheaply. He is one man down on the team and Gazza the Giant is roped in. Alec is so confident he ups the bet with Maurice to £50. Mike thinks that he could do better than Robert any day. Robert tells him about a deal he's doing in Alcazar for land and whets Mike's appetite.
