The lorry noise adds to Hilda's woes. Gertie agrees to nephew Gary Turner staying with her if his parents agree. The residents persuade Hilda to take the job - cleaning on a cruise ship, the Monte Umber. Annie sympathetically invites Lucille to return to the Rovers. She doesn't want to return as she feels she is getting nowhere in life. Ken gets a meeting with the Warehouse boss regarding the traffic noise. Stan tells Hilda she's too long in the tooth to get the cruise job. Lucille returns to the Rovers. The residents discuss the problem of the lorries in the Street. Annie questions two drivers, Eddie and Frank, about the noise. They don't care about the disruption as they work on commission. Annie bars them until the lorries are silenced. Hilda gets the cruise job and tells Stan she could be away for six weeks.
