With Rita away, Emily helps out at The Kabin. Liz is shocked when Jim resigns from his job. He urges her to tackle Richard Willmore about them taking a pub on. Emily is affronted when Vera asks her to tell the Police that she suffered another mental breakdown over the car. Derek fears he went too far in his dossier. Liz contacts Willmore and is amazed when he agrees to chat to her and Jim about the possibility of their own pub. Angie is furious to discover that Hanif has checked Mike out. She accuses him of snooping. Vera realises they need the money Doug brings in. He flatters her and buys her chocolates. Jim and Liz tell the boys about their plans. Liz is upset when they feel that it's got nothing to do with them as they're old enough to look after themselves. Denise is surprised when Hanif chats her up. Derek is stunned when Harry Potts tells him that he's leaving to be caretaker at the Tech and Mrs Jeffers has written him a glowing reference.
