Stan wants to know who his minder is while Hilda is away working on the cruise ship. Stan splashes out on drink with his housekeeping money. Ken asks Wilfred Perkins' advice on the job offer but he isn't sure. Maggie refuses Stan credit. He realises he isn't going to survive as he's spent nearly all Hilda's money. Aboard the Monte Umber, Hilda works like a slave. Janet has no faith in Ken at all. She doesn't think he's capable of finding opportunities.
