He tells her that he feels the time has come to leave No.3. Nick introduces himself to Leanne and they are attracted to each other. Rita struggles alone at work as Judy nurses sick Katie. She wonders what she's let herself in for taking her on. Jon and Deirdre act up for the residents, telling them that he can no longer fly. Emily celebrates her birthday with a party. She is startled when Percy tells her that he's moving out and it's all because he can't live with her anymore; she's become too fond of the drink and playing games on him.
