Stan celebrates his fiftieth birthday in hospital and Hilda lovingly writes out his card. She shows Archie the bright tie she's bought him. Ray and Jerry tease a surly Len about Rita. Archie doesn't think Stan will last until his sixtieth birthday with his boozy lifestyle. Annie tells Billy she's far too set in her ways to change the Rovers. Rita visits Len at the yard and he gives her tips for the housing meeting. Emily drums up support for Ernie's street band and Elsie offers Alan's talents on the guitar. Over a meal, Hilda tells Archie how she and Stan met. Alan is surprised to find out from Ernie that he's in the band, using Gordon's guitar that Maggie is lending. Sid Bolton visits the Rovers again and tells Billy the brewery is interested in modernising the Rovers but they also need a landlord with equally modern ideas. Ray and Jerry sunbathe in the yard. Rita and Harry Bates arrive looking for Len and are sent on to No. 9. They go round there and tell Len they have been promised... Written by GusF
