Steph tells Sally that she and Des have made up. Ken doesn't want to cancel his weekend with Tracy but Wendy is adamant that he must meet her mother. Tracy likes Dave Barton and is pleased when he gives her a lift to school. A skint Jack tries to borrow money from Curly, in vain. Ken gives in to Wendy but isn't happy about it. Jack steals Vera's time clock that she took from the closing Baldwin's Casuals factory. Vera notices right away and searches for him. Dave starts decorating Deirdre's kitchen and gives up his weekend to finish it. Deirdre is grateful. Rita decides that the time has come for her to move out of No.7 and tells Jenny and Flick she'll move out next week. Tracy takes the news of Ken's broken weekend well.
