Sally is amused by Joe's concern over leaving Jonathan. Angie visits Affleck's Palace and meets an old friend there. She is impressed that she makes a 100% profit on all she sells. Sally finds Jonathan a handful as he's so unsettled. Denise asks the bank for a loan and is turned down. Joe explains to Sally that his wife has left him and Jonathan misses her. Hanif takes Denise out. She is sarcastic about his father letting him out. Tanya talks to Jim about how women find men attractive. She snidely tells him that it's obvious Liz plays the game well; she got the pub. Denise doesn't want Neil's cheque to bounce so she scratches around for the money to cover it. Hanif tells her it's obvious that she wants him to lend her the money. She is indignant and says she isn't hinting. She calls him a condescending pig and walks out on him in a restaurant. Don picks her up in his cab and takes her home. Gordon Blinkhorn gives Raquel lessons in cricket theory. She finds it much simpler than football. Jim accuses Liz of flirting with Richard Willmore to get the pub and asks her how far she had to go. She tells him that he's a fool to listen to gossip and Willmore has never touched her. He tells her to tell Willmore to keep away, or he will.

Notable dialogueEdit

Raquel Wolstenhulme: "I mean, the purpose of football is to score goals, right?"
Bet Gilroy: "I think so, aye."
Raquel Wolstenhulme: "Well it's daft. You see, you've got two teams on the field and they're both kicking in opposite directions. Well... why don't they both kick the same way, then they can score as many goals as they like that way."
Bet Gilroy: "You know Raquel, you're summat close to a genius..."
