Stan discovers Tommy Deakin and Michael Ryan have paid in advance for half-board. Rita helps Ken see his influence should be used to teach children, not look after factory workers. Tommy stores manure in the backyard of No.13. Ray is chased by a woman with a child. Deirdre and Lucille fall for Michael once he gets rid of the muck. Janet packs and leaves Ken - she was never what he wanted from a wife.
