Hilda is horrified that Stan has put £1 of change into the fruit machine. She refuses to let it leave the house whilst it has their money. Stan feeds the machine with the gas and electricity money but still doesn't win the jackpot. The residents try to put the girls off London. Gail begins to worry that they're making a wrong move. Bet uses the fruit machine when she calls into No.13 for a catalogue and wins the jackpot. Hilda demands her £6 back but Bet says the money's hers as she won it. Eddie takes the machine away. The Ogdens can't watch television as Stan took the plug off and put it on the fruit machine so he could use it. The electric goes off and they haven't any money left for the meter - they have to sit in darkness. Gail gets cold feet about London so Suzie goes on her own.
