After much nagging by Liz, Jim apologies to Mike Baldwin in the
hope that Mike will offer him his job back at the garage. However,
Mike decides to publicly humiliate Jim in the Rovers when he apologies
and Jim tells Liz that she wanted him to grovel, and he did, but
he won't ever do it again. Relationships are strained between
Jim and Liz. Josie tells Maud and Maureen in the corner shop that
her friend has seen a flasher and they have a good gossip about
Racquel's modelling agent pays a visit to the Street to see Racquel.
Before he goes into the Rovers, he catches sight of Fiona, and
offers her his business card, and asks her to ring him if she
is interested in modelling work. Racquel tells Fiona she doesn't
have what it takes to be a model, after all, she's not done any
training for the job. Jack and Vera take over the Rovers and both
are working hard. Vera is doing everything from scrubbing out
the toilets to making the hot pot. Yes, the hot pot... Betty has
walked out after Vera told her she noticed that she wasn't doing
much behind the bar and asked her to take on some cleaning work.
Jack has sacked Bill Webster, after Vera told Jack there is no
need for a second cellar man, (although Jack was hoping for an
easy life). The brewery took away the cash register so on the
opening night Vera had to use her handbag as a makeshift till
until something more suitable was found - a biscuit tin! After
working out how much money Vera made on her hot pot, Jack decides
it's not worth the effort for Vera to keep making it herself and
takes up Fred the butcher's offer of buying in some cheap pies
The couple who have bought Jack and Vera's house, the Mallets,
were upset when Jack and Vera wanted to take their bar with them
to the Rovers, as the Mallets want to keep the bar as a feature
of the house.
Leo Firman has been sacked now from Firman's Freezers. He goes
to the Rovers to tell Racquel what he thinks of her, and to blame
her for him losing his job. At first Racquel is afraid of what
he will do to her, but when he starts calling her a "walking
wonderbra" and calls Curly names, she loses her temper with
him and throws things at him, yelling at him that he's just like
all the rest. "That's for Des, and that's for Tanya"
she yells, throwing food at him until he leaves, walking out of
the Rovers while Racquel throws packets of peanuts from behind
the bar at him. Curly calls in to see Racquel later that evening
and expects to find her upset, but the event has made her much
stronger, and she's off out nightclubbing with a friend.
Vicky and Steve are having some problems with their domestic arrangements,
neither of them can be bothered to tidy up their new flat so Steve
hires a cleaner while Vicky is out at work.
