The Hopkins considers exchanging Maggie's old furniture for Vera's mother's. Edward Pollard tries to poison Marcus Berlin against Ken but Ken doesn't give him the chance. Emily feels the Bishops should put themselves up to be foster parents. Ernie agrees. Ken suggests that the women to be retired could be kept 'on call' to fill in in emergencies. Gordon Clegg refuses to think about the furniture until after Christmas, meanwhile Vera has to pay £3 a week for storage. The Bishops are interviewed for fostering. Ken, Marcus and Pollard throw a retirement party for the workers. They all like Ken's idea. Pollard tells Marcus that Ken is seeing Peggy Barton. Megan demands £4 a week storage money off Maggie. The Social Services have an emergency and ask the Bishops to take in two black children straight away.
