Minnie throws a birthday party for Ena but refuses to invite Albert. Len returns from a council trip to Holland. Elsie questions Lucille about why Mark upset her and is told that he asked her point-blank to sleep with him and his language was offensive. Minnie tells Annie that Billy entertains Irma at her house. Annie has Billy's room finished so that she can move Billy back in. Albert gatecrashes the party, having been to the Armistice Day service. Mark is eager to go to watch a football match with Alan until he hears that Len will be calling round on Elsie so he makes his excuses, follows them to No.11 and listens in from the hallway as Elsie and Len flirt with each other.
