The Kabin is ransacked during the night. Rita feels stupid for forgetting the key. Alf warns Fred off from spending so much time with Audrey. Fred assures him his interest in her is strictly political. Curly decides to change his image, buying new clothes, glasses, getting two earrings and having his hair cut dramatically. Vera demands to know if Alec is planning to marry Rita. He tells her it's nothing to do with her. Mike suggests to Greg that they get Liz to host knicker parties in customers' homes. Greg says Liz is too tarty and suggests Sally instead. Rita is upset when Alec discovers she's behind in paying her bills. She doesn't know what's happening to her. Alec takes control and arranges for her to stay with Mavis in Cartmel for a few days. She is grateful and leaves The Kabin in his hands. Curly is an instant hit at the party as everyone is impressed by his new image. He chats up Spider's friend Lucy Johnson but is embarrassed when he learns she's only interested in him because she feels sorry for him being alone. Lucy leaves the party with Alan. Greg encourages Sally to take the knicker parties job as it'll give them an excuse to meet in the evenings. Les gatecrashes Spider's party and is stunned when drunk Toyah vomits over him. Kevin is gutted when Sally tells him he can't have any of her money.
