Bet tells her the truth, having heard it herself from Betty. Elsie and Emily worry about Val's reputation. Gregg Flint and Gary Strauss turn up, telling a delighted Elsie that they're on leave. Elsie tells them that Joe is at Minnie’s. Hilda and Stan are upset that people think they're a joke. Elsie tries to warn Ray off Val but he refuses to listen.
