Ray and Len start doing emergency work on Sundays. Emily is annoyed at Brenda Summers' lack of drive as she spends all her time thinking about John. Ralph Lancaster assures Rita she's not past it and suggests she tries the British Legion. She doesn't like the idea of singing in a Working Men's Club. John tells Brenda he wants her to come home. Emily tells him Brenda is not returning to him. Ray and Len can't bring themselves to con the customers by charging the earth and Len only charges Mrs Holt £5 instead of the planned £30 for unblocking her toilet. Rita and Deirdre think it's sweet. Emily is speechless when Brenda returns to John.
