Kevin goes for an interview at Athertons Exhaust Centre. He tells Sally that he's doing it for her but she isn't bothered. Mike invites Deirdre out to a French restaurant and she accepts the invitation. Alma tries to ignore Mike's presence in the Street and goes to the pictures with Ken. Kevin is turned down for the job as he's too old. He is angry and frustrated. Sally urges him to grow up and stop playing with little cars but to find any sort of job. Don tells Ivy that she could shatter any stability Nicky might have if she contests the adoption. Ivy contacts the social services. Mike bumps into Alma and Ken and offers them congratulations on their relationship. He annoys them by taking Deirdre to the Rovers knowing they are there. Alma refuses to let him drive her out of the pub and lets him see that her life is no longer in pieces. Deirdre realises Mike is using her and is embarrassed for Ken's sake. She walks out of the pub to Ken's amusement. She tells Mike that she'd rather starve than eat with him. Mike is frustrated when Ken and Alma take his taxi.
