Raquel spoils Des on his birthday, buying him a leather jacket. He feels too guilty to enjoy himself. The Bettabuy staff are given new uniforms. Audrey threatens to spread rumours of an affair if Alf doesn't tell Rita that he's changed his mind. Denise tries to make up to Ken but he is noncommittal about seeing her again. Alf tells Rita that Audrey's creating a fuss and she can't be Mayoress anymore. Rita is annoyed that she's been mucked around. Kevin tells Derek that his car is on its last legs. Jim is amazed when Mike tells him that he can borrow the Jaguar to take Liz to the races. Percy is amazed that he never spotted Randy was an imposter. Curly tries to jolly Des along and is stunned when Des tells him why he's depressed - he slept with another woman, although he doesn't name Tanya. Curly urges him to forget it.
