Tony asks Fiona not to sack Maxine or make her life a misery. Judy helps Gary erect the conservatory in the Wiltons' back garden. Mavis is horrified when Gary slices through Derek's prize turnip but Derek forces himself to shrug it off. Liz tells Jim that she'd rather they sold the house to a stranger as if he buys it will look as if he's come out on top. He tells her that she's pathetic and refuses to drop the idea. Tricia asks Des to help her track down Terry, explaining she's pregnant with his baby. Des phones the Hortons and gets his address in Sheffield. Liz panics when she hears Steve has been injured in a prison fight. Joyce cooks a meal for Alec so he insists that she shares it with him. He tells her that he would get divorced if the right woman came along. Steve tells Liz that he picked a fight with a thug and has no regrets, despite having broken ribs. Liz feels it's a protest because Fiona won't speak to him. Des drives Tricia to a tower block in Sheffield. She meets Terry's girlfriend Nicola Owens who tells her that she hasn't seen Terry for two months when he ran off with £1,800 that she lent to him.
