Steve tells Mike he wouldn't have had to pay the girls' redundancy and could now be done for wrongful dismissal as he didn't give the girls any verbal or written warnings. Mavis decides to cook the OAPs coq-au-vin for the supper. Ena tells her the OAPs won't like it. Gail looks for a job but Suzie isn't that bothered. Steve tells them Mike should have given them a written warning and they've got grounds for claiming unfair dismissal. Harry Payne arrives to Elsie's surprise - he was her admirer in Majorca. Ron is annoyed. Harry invites them out for a Spanish meal. Ron refuses but Elsie accepts. Suzie and Gail accuse Mike of unfair dismissal and demand compensation, threatening him with a tribunal. Gail wants her job back but Suzie wants to take him to the cleaners. Mike tells them to sort out what they want. Mike is furious that Steve told the girls about the unfair dismissal. Ron tells Elsie he doesn't like her going out with Harry. He tells her to make up her mind between Harry or him.
