Rita and Elsie don't enjoy running around after Len and clash. Ena is the first off-licence customer and gets her two stouts free. Ray tells Rita that Len is putting it on. She pours a pint over Len's head in her fury. She throws all the washing she has done out of a window. Terry tells Harry McClean that Renee wants to settle down. Ena worries as she hasn't heard from Minnie in ages. Renee tells Harry she'll wait to marry him and assures him she didn't buy the shop in the hope he'd settle down. He tells her he can't see their marriage working out and returns to sea, their engagement broken.
