Ivy starts at Ingram's. The Quarryman's Rest is both a dive and has a ghost which is enough to convince Alec and Bet that they don't want to move there. With the Duckworths away, Kimberley has told her mother that she is staying the night at her friend Alison's house, when really she and Curly are planning a night together alone. Flick doesn't want the gold necklace Mark has given her but can't face returning it to him. The general consensus of opinion in the Street is that Deirdre is stabbing everyone in the back by selling her house to the brewery. Alf is secretly pleased as it'll hurt her popularity with voters. Betty is resigned to retiring. Garage customer Mel Bailey searches for a lost gold necklace which might have been left in his car. Mike advises Deirdre to ignore the gossips as they'd do the same in her place. Alec tries to stir the regulars into action and is horrified when Percy hounds the drinkers. Deirdre agrees to sell up and tells Nigel Ridley she wants to leave as soon as possible. Kimberley is regretting her decision to go against her principles and decides not to sleep with Curly. Flick decides to get rid of the necklace. Kevin realises it's the one Mel Bailey was looking for.
