Raquel prepares a special meal for Wayne Farrell, hoping that he will propose marriage. Curly breaks the news to Deirdre that Reg has bought the shop.

Reg tells him that he isn't going to give notice or ask for retirement as it might be refused; he's going to let his high standards slip so that Brendan thinks he's not doing a good job. Bet and Stella are stunned when Liz hears that she's been given The Queens, the bewery's top pub. The McDonalds celebrate. Alf doesn't really want to leave the shop.
