Pat’s horrified to discover Ricky’s leaving today for a job in Dubai for 6 months. Ricky’s adamant he has to go for the kids’ sake; they need the money now that Norman’s contesting Lydia’s will. Pat’s determined to change Norman’s mind. He initially refuses, the money will make up for the cruel way Lydia treated him. Later, thinking of the support Frank gave him, Norman agrees not to contest the will to help Ricky. Janine’s irritated that Pat thinks Norman has more right to Lydia’s money than her and accuses Pat of neglecting her as a child. Janine agrees to share the money with Ricky – if Pat begs. Desperate, Pat’s starting to beg when Ricky walks in. Janine insists she was joking and offers him £100,000. Appalled that Janine’s made Pat beg, Ricky’s adamant he wants nothing from her. Insisting all his kids need is love, he gets into a taxi for the airport. Pat thinks Frank would be proud of Ricky, but rounds on Janine – as far as she’s concerned Janine doesn’t exist. The cab pulls away as Ricky tearfully waves goodbye.
