Ray decides he's going to be referee at the bowling match. Annie puts Jack's tankard up as a trophy for the winner. Albert and Betty coach their teams (Betty, Rita, Norma and Mavis vs Albert, Ernie, Ken and Jerry), refusing to call it a friendly match. The Howards return. The first heat of the match is a draw so Rita and Ernie have a play off. Rita, in a tight skirt, tries to put Ernie off but he is steadfast and wins. The ladies forfeit is to produce a cabaret in drag.
