It is Jack and Vera's forty-fourth wedding anniversary. They have a fish and chip supper in Jack's potting shed on the allotment, reminiscent of being in Vera's father's potting shed. Curly discovers that he's suffering from Couvade Syndrome - a sympathetic pregnancy. Karen invites herself along on the Street Cars outing to a casino. Karen loses £100 of Steve's money whilst Eileen wins nearly £200. Karen is furious and she and Eileen have a huge slanging match. Karen says some really bitchy things and as Steve fails to stick up for Eileen she quits her job and walks out of the casino. Roy visits Hayley again in prison. Rita asks him if he told Hayley about visiting Sheila Hayes. Roy avoids the question and acts rather strangely. Fred gives Eve a lift to the Turk's Head as she says that she's working there. He waits in the car and sees her leave the pub after a few minutes and head for the bus stop. Fred tells Rita of his suspicions. Martin suggests to Sally they go out for a meal but she thinks it's too risky.
