Charlene goes to follow Mike, but Scott stops her.
Daphne is in bed. Des and Mike have had a postcard from Bradley. Mike tells Des that he's made a real fool of himself and really hurt Jane's feelings.

Mike says she's probably going with someone else by now but Des reminds him this all only happened fifteen minutes ago(!)
Des makes Mike ring Jane up and invite her to the dance. She says she'd love to. Jane is chuffed to bits.

Jane comes in (back to her old self) and tells them that Mike has asked her to the dance. Helen and Scott are pleased. Also, Mrs Mangel is on the mend.

Graham tells Clive that he doesn't have to take over at the surgery - he can just stay until the locum arrives.

Scott, Charlene, Mike and Jane are home from school and making up juice and pieces of cake for themselves.

She kisses him on the cheek.
Madge has got a dress for Charlene to wear to the dance and is doing her hair. Charlene says that maybe they could compromise - she wants to be a motor mechanic and there's a lot of opportunity in it.

Jane has had a really good time at the dance. Just then, a girl called Sue comes up and sneers at Jane. Mike defends her and Scott and Charlene tell Sue to get lost. Sue tells Jane she's a dag whatever she looks like. Jane is upset. When Sue has gone, Jane says that Sue is right - Mike can do better than her. Mike tries to protest but Jane runs off.
