Ronnie helps out a lost little girl
Aired Thursday, Mar 18 2010 at 19:30 GMT on BBC One

The lost girl that Ronnie discovered walking the streets the previous night wakes in her flat and is clearly apprehensive about seeing her father. Turning to Max for help, Ronnie asks if Abi will look after the girl for a short while. Max agrees to allow Abi to watch over the girl, while Ronnie arranges a meeting with Jack to talk about his daughter Penny. Jack insists that his daughter's doing absolutely fine without him and that his ex-wife Selina's decision to leave and start a new life in France was the right thing for Penny.

Afterwards, Ronnie drops in on Billy, who admits that he's loved every minute he's spent with Jay and that he'd do it all again if he could. As the day draws to a close, Ronnie collects the girl from Max's house and heads over to The Vic. At the door, though, she spots Max, Jack, Billy and Phil having a row. Not wanting to take the girl inside, Ronnie turns and leaves…

Meanwhile, Jean's excited about the prospect of a fountain in the Square gardens and shows Denise some options in the hope of having the final design delivered by the following week. Lucas attempts to dissuade Jean from moving too fast and reminds her that the Walford Gazette photographer isn't available until Monday. Lucas is happy to hear Denise say that they'll wait. All of a sudden, though, Jean grabs a spade and heads out to the gardens and starts digging, claiming that she wants everything to be ready for Stacey's return. Lucas manages to calm Jean down and once again successfully manages to delay the digging. Later, in the dead of night, Lucas heads out into the gardens and destroys everything that's been done.

Also, Carol's in desperate need of a job and is pleasantly surprised when Billy reveals that he knows someone who needs some help. Carol does an about-turn, though, when she comes face to face with Ian. Vowing that she'll never work for Ian, Carol's delighted when she's offered an 'administrative role'. Unaware of the identity of Zainab's business partner, Carol's led to meet him - and is furious to be staring at Ian again.

Elsewhere, Ian realises that he'll never be able to keep up with all of Lucy's schooling material; Ricky can't bring himself to tell Billie that he can't afford to keep him on at The Arches; Shirley's taken aback when she finds a diamond ring in a bag that Ben left behind; and Ricky lets Billie win Mo's fun run and offers to take him for a drink in a bid to soften the blow of the bad news he's about to deliver.

Also, Lucy's delighted when the Beales decide that Lucy should go back to school; Ben rushes back to retrieve his bag from Shirley, who maintains that she hasn't seen what's inside; and having confided in Phil that he can't afford Billie's wages, Ricky's annoyed to see Phil whispering the news into Billie's ear.
