Reg fears he'll be thrown out in the takeover and feels he should take the shop off the market. Fiona assures Steve she loves him but asks for time to think about their future and his marriage proposal. Derek fears Norris has been getting at Angela and that she may need protecting. Alec invites Vicky on a three week cruise holiday to North Africa for two. Reg cheers up when he discovers it's a traditional American firm, American Edibles, who want to buy Firman's Freezers. He feels safer with an established company as they'll value experience. Vicky asks Bet on the cruise when she finds out Alec won't be on it. Bet likes the idea of a holiday at Alec's expense. Fiona talks to Alma about her feelings for Steve. Alma warns her that she won't change Steve by marrying him. Vera is disgusted to see Don entertaining Josie. Norris is glad Derek is dropping the claim and pretends to know nothing of Angela's interference. Don cooks roast lamb for Josie. He tells her how odd he feels not knowing if Ivy will ever return. She helps him out by doing his laundry. Reg is aghast when Norris tells him American Edibles has a reputation for sacking everyone over forty. Bet tells Vicky she will go on the cruise and warns her she's overheard Alma saying that Steve has proposed to Fiona. Vicky is stunned. Fiona tells Steve she won't consider marrying him until he's out of financial difficulties and they should take things one step at a time.
