While Mike and Vicky look at rings, Vicky drops the bombshell that she'll be going down to two days a week at work. Mike is shaken; but is quickly distracted by the fact that Vicky expects him to have a ring, too.

Later, Vicky shows the rings to Susan. She pretends to approve while Vicky is in the shop but quickly reverts to type when Vicky goes, and tells Neil that Betty would turn in her grave. Neil is more annoyed that Vic, the butcher he was hoping to sell to, doesn't need any orders. Susan tells him not to lose heart; something may come of it in the future.

Brenda is touched when Pat asks her to help the family business by doing some occasional PR for Bridge Farm. Brenda spends the next few minutes being disparaging about Vicky and her wedding dress, prompting Pat to say gently that Vicky might be good for Mike. Roy shares Pat's sentiments, warning Brenda not to do anything to upset Mike on his big day.

After Mike has bought his wedding suit with Roy, Brenda makes his day by agreeing to read a verse at the wedding. Mike is touched and delighted.
