Jack goes against Vera's wishes and lifts the ban on the Malletts. Tricia gets a letter from the courts but ignores it. Vicky has a sad birthday, coming to terms with the knowledge that Steve lied to her. Roy gets a new job washing-up in a big hotel. To help Tricia out he buys her TV for £30. Jack takes Liz on to help out behind the bar. Gail is amazed when Don tells her that he's withdrawing his claim to the house. She is furious that he would think her capable of blackmail and assures him that she hasn't told a soul - not even Martin - about the calls. They agree to compromise and after a lot of debate decide that Don will buy the house from Nick for £12,000. Nick is thrilled. Deirdre wishes Ken luck when she hears he's marrying Denise. Steve suggests to Vicky that they could bribe Malcolm Fox to keep him out of the court case. He asks Vicky how much she thinks he is worth.
