Ivy shocks the girls by siding with Steve against Vera. Alf comes out of his coma. Vera discovers Steve is doing a time-and-motion study on the girls. The girls accuse him of spying on them. When he refuses to rip the study up Ivy calls a stop to the work. Steve is shocked that Mike told Ivy to keep an eye on him. Ivy phones Mike. Mike can't believe that the girls have stopped working on an important order. He orders Steve to get them working again. Steve accuses him of undermining his authority. Mike decides to leave the hospital. The nurses refuse to help him so he struggles with his crutches. Alf can't remember the crash at all. Mike tells Ivy there'll be no more clock-watching. She gets the girls back to work. Mike tells Steve he has a lot to learn. Alf tells Renee he will return to the GPO. Ivy realises Gail has wedding bells in mind and doesn't like the idea.
