Mike suspects Alma of slashing Jackie's duvet but convinces Jackie that it was probably Sandra Rogers to stop her calling the police; she wouldn't want Sandra's affair with Peter to come out in court. Curly tells Jack he can't take Vera back on as it'll make Reg look guilty. Curly asks Raquel out in front of Kimberley. Mike confronts Mr Simpson who gives him a description of Alma and admits he left her alone for a few minutes. Mike confronts Alma with a piece of slashed duvet. She tells Mike that she doesn't know why she did it and writes him a blank cheque. He is touched by her emotions. Reg asks Vera to withdraw her allegation and he'll take her back. He sways her towards accepting by suggesting that no other Bettabuy manager would have Curly as their assistant. Jackie rips up the cheque as she prefers to forget the incident ever happened. Vera goes to see Brendan Scott. Audrey arranges for some repairs to be taken out on the flat behind Alf's back. Curly takes Raquel into the Rovers and is shocked when she makes it clear she wants to get him into bed. Rita tells Reg that she wants their meetings to stop. Raquel gets amorous with Curly but walks out when he keeps talking about Kimberley.
