Alf rows with Reg for not wiping off the £26 worth of stock he took for a children's charity and later paid back. Jack decides to show the neighbours that he's a generous man by throwing a party. Curly thinks that Leo will be a good boss but Reg hopes he won't be around much. Reg fumes when Leo asks him to personally pack Vera and Jack's purchases away. Percy buys drinks for the regulars in order to toast the memory of VJ-Day. Jack installs an old set of optics behind the Spanish bar to show off at the party. Reg attends the party hoping to get the Duckworths to think again about the shop. Vera is thrilled when Jack toasts her and gives her an engagement ring as she's never had one. He announces he bought it with £460 that he won on the horses. Vera has never been so happy.
