Alma tells Mike that Stephen humiliated her and she hates him. Maud wonders why Maureen has cooled towards Bill and tries to find out if he's got another woman. Maureen tells her to shut up. Alma is touched when Mike tells her he's glad she hates Stephen as he could never have coped with losing her. She assures him they'll survive. Jim tells Bill he'll never be able to forget Maureen sleeping with Curly and advises him to finish with her. Stephen tells Audrey that he's dropping Mike and Alma is upset. Fiona is fed up with feeling that there's a side to Alan she's never allowed to see. Audrey lays into Alma for begging Stephen not to pull out on Mike. Gail is stunned to hear Stephen has cut Mike's contract. When Audrey tells her she can't have any self-respect, chasing Stephen, Alma turns on her saying Stephen is a scheming coward. Don rails against the fact that Alf's court case isn't in the paper whereas his was given full publicity. Bill tells Maureen he never wants them to mention Curly again and start again. She agrees. Alan takes Fiona to Carlo's Italian restaurant but she is aware his mind isn't on her. When she confronts him he swears he isn't married. Anne tells Curly she's glad Andy is gone as he was too young for her. Fiona is bewildered when Alan interrupts their meal to summon two policemen to arrest a diner. He explains the man is an armed robber who supposedly skipped abroad but whose brother owns the restaurant. She is impressed. He admits he is married - to his job and she might find that she isn't able to live with that.
