Emily gets her bottom drawer ready. Ena demands five days notice for preparation of any social events at the Community Centre. Annie suggests that Ernie tries harder to find the ring. He tells her that it wasn't insured. Annie refuses to ask the Ogdens on Ernie's behalf if they have the ring. Ernie plucks up courage to ask them and they take great offence although Stan suggests that Ernie offers a reward. Emily and Ena reach an agreement over the centre. Hilda discovers the ring in Stan's trouser turn-up.
