Elsie agrees to let Suzie stay another week when she buys her a birthday present. Bet refuses to leave No.5. Suzie buys Elsie a face mask. To please her Suzie decides to clean her soot-filled chimney with a brick. Len receives an invite to Stanley Fairclough's wedding. Rita tells him she'd like to go with him. He tells her how Stanley doesn't really want him to go. Suzie drops the brick down the wrong chimney and covers the Ogdens' parlour, and the Ogdens themselves, in soot.
