Ray makes some repairs to Bet's flat and sees her neighbour Carlos. The Bishops find looking after the children hard work. Annie tells Len of her dissatisfaction with the road improvements in Rosamund Street which have ruined her shoes. Ray and Bet decide to have a laugh at Mavis's expense. Betty agrees to sell a sideboard to Hilda for £2 but Bet says she wants it. The Bishops take the children out. Ray gets Carlos to ring Jerry and pretend to be Pedro Diaz arranging to meet Mavis. In emptying the sideboard, Granny Hopkins finds Gordon Clegg's birth certificate: father "unknown", mother "Elizabeth Preston".
