Curly encourages Raquel to do well in her interviews and tells her that he would consider moving if she took a job out of the area. She goes to the second stage and removes her wedding ring, fearing it might cost her the job. Samantha enjoys leading Sean on when he flirts with her. She feels that she's not his type but he persists so she agrees to go dog racing with him. The interviewers at Berkeley International, Irene Muir and Dennis Norton, are impressed by Raquel's personality and her modelling history. She tells them that she doesn't have any commitments. Deirdre and Ken meet Robert Preston, their future son-in-law, and take to him. Raquel is stunned when she is offered a job in Kuala Lumpur. Shirley and Maurice Preston have tea with the Barlows and Robert. Tracy is nervous to meet her new in-laws and Ken is put out when working class Maurice takes against him for being a teacher. Liz warns Samantha to watch herself with Sean, explaining how he sexually harassed her. Deirdre is upset when the Prestons tell her that they don't want Robert to marry Tracy as he's on the rebound. Sean is furious when Samantha tells him that she's not going out with him because someone has told her he sexually harassed them. He instinctly knows it's Liz. Ken is aghast when Tracy buys her wedding dress for £14 from a charity shop and a pair of Doc Martin boots. Raquel tells Curly she's been offered a job in Kuala Lumpur and it's not fair. He assures her that there'll be other jobs.
