When the Platts discover that Monica's pup costs £400 they tell a disappointed David that he can't have it. Pat and Steve finish the Medical Centre job. An impressed Duggie buys the builders drinks all day. Deirdre sorts out paperwork at the shop for Dev. Fred worries when he hears that a supermarket is to open near his Butcher's Shop. Duggie suggests he relocates to Victoria Street. The Platts are relieved when David agrees to take on a dog from a rescue centre. Vinny gets tired of Duggie bragging and throwing his weight around. They arm wrestle, but the match turns into a fight when Duggie suggests swapping girlfriends as Natalie needs a real man. Rita feels uncomfortable when she sees Anthony with his wife and sees how tender he is with her. Whilst drunk, Duggie offers Vinny a job. Tyrone minds Tommy at the garage, but when his back is turned Doreen Horton snatches him. Vera is horrified to see them driving away together.
