Mark is surprised when Mike tells him that he'll buy him the ticket to go away again on the condition that he will return in September to be his best man. Gary is furious when a photo of him and Paula appears in the local paper. He feels Paula has tricked him and is angry. He accuses her of running to the Press but she swears she knows nothing about it. When Linda lays into Alma for visiting the flat, Blanche launches into an attack, telling her she has no decency. When Vera cries off with exhausted feet, Norris dances with Celeste Pickersgill and feels that he's more in tune with her. He agrees to be her partner, much to Vera's annoyance. Whilst the residents gather at Roy's Rolls for a Home Watch meeting, the burglars ransack No.7. Emma and Curly interrupt them, with Les' help. Emma arrests the youths whilst Les enjoys pretending to be a detective. Paula drags the journalist round to Gary and gets him to tell him that she had nothing to do with the photograph. Gary is confused.
