Suzie enjoys lounging around the house whilst Elsie and Gail have to work. Alf agrees to help Deirdre find somewhere to live. Fred asks Betty to lend him £40. She refuses.

Alf pulls strings and gets Deirdre a flat. She's thrilled. Fred is forced to tell Betty he got the £40 from the till. She is horrified and makes him put an IOU in.
