Kelly thinks that No.5 isn't the right house for Ashley as she doesn't like Don. Raquel tells Curly that if he wants children then she must see that he is more committed to the idea. Jim fumes when Liz's solicitor asks him to value the furniture he bought with the house. Ken tries to get out of going to the conference with Sue Jeffers and so she accuses him of thinking that she is interested in him. Although that is what he is thinking he assures her that he can't. She admits that she might be a bit interested in him but she says that she wouldn't make a pass so he agrees to go to the conference after all. Roy lectures Jamie when he catches him skiving from school. He gets to the root of the problem when he asks after Carl. Gail tries to talk to Jamie about how much he misses his dad but he doesn't want to talk about it. Des doesn't know how to treat Claire now that she is willing to give up £16,000 for him. He isn't sure that he is happy with that amount of commitment. Deirdre tells Ken that Sue is obviously letting him know that she is available if he is interested. Claire assures Des that she is not interested in marrying him. She is hurt when he tells her that he is going off women when they are available to him. He tells her to pack her bags but she knows that he doesn't want her to leave.
